Herschel Walker, current Republican Senate candidate, has put out a rather epic political ad on Wednesday that accuses the Democratic Party of taking racial issues and using them to further divide the American people. This is absolutely true. Leftists have created racism where none exists and have employed the use of it to tear us apart as a formerly united people. So much hate has been bred by liberals in this area that the divide has become as wide as the Grand Canyon.
According to TheBlaze, “The 30-second ad quotes Democratic politicians including President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, and incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-Ga.), contrasting their statements that America is racist with Walker’s belief that America is a ‘great country full of generous people.’”

Walker’s ad starts off by saying, “Democrats use race to divide us.” The video then displays a highlight reel of prominent figures within the Democratic Party making a bunch of divisive remarks about the status of race in the U.S.
A quote from Stacey Abrams made its way into the ad, featuring the time she criticized the Georgia election reforms that were supported by the GOP as being “racist,” calling them a “redux of Jim Crow in a suit and tie.”
Vice President Kamala Harris is also quoted in the video, saying, “America has a long history of systemic racism.” This quote taken from comments she gave after the guilty verdict for Derek Chauvin was announced in the murder case of George Floyd.
Here’s a few more details from TheBlaze report concerning the ad:
It also refers to Joe Biden’s widely criticized comment from 2020 in which he told Charlamagne the God, “if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.” Finally, it quote’s Walker’s opponent Raphael Warnock saying, “America has a preexisting condition. It’s called racism.”
Then Walker addresses viewers directly with a simple message: “Senator Warnock believes America is a bad country, full of racist people. I believe we’re a great country, full of generous people.”
“Warnock wants to divide us. I want to bring us together,” Walker says.
The ad comes as horse race polls show a tight contest between Walker and Warnock, who won a Senate seat in a special election in 2020. A recent poll from Emerson College has the Republican candidate leading the Democratic Senator 46%-44%, a much closer race than in April when Warnock led Walker 49%-45%. The Senate election is rated a “toss-up” by the Cook Political Report.
With the midterm elections only two months away, Warnock has been launching an all-out assault on Walker, claiming he’s dragging his feet about debating him. Warnock released an ad of his own this week that makes a call for Walker to “quit the games” and “agree to debates.”
Walker, no coward, responded to Warnock’s challenge by offering to have a “fair debate” in Savannah on Oct. 14.
” I don’t care what the topics are. It’s a fair debate. Open to the public. Televised statewide. And it’s not run by your donors. You in? Let’s do this for the people,” Walker said in a tweet.
Let’s lock down Savannah Oct 14th, Senator. I don’t care what the topics are. It’s a fair debate. Open to the public. Televised statewide. And it’s not run by your donors. You in? Let’s do this for the people.

However, Warnock’s campaign laid out a stipulation that must be met before an agreement for a debate will be reached. He wants to debate Walker for a second time next month.
“It’s time for Herschel Walker to stop playing games,” Warnock campaign manager Quentin Fulks went on to say. “The job of a U.S. senator isn’t one where you know the topics ahead of time or get a cheat sheet, and Herschel Walker shouldn’t need one to find the courage to walk on a debate stage.”
One of the issues that has prevented an agreement about debating has been whether or not the candidates will receive the topics for the event in advance, along with whether a live audience will be present.
