Georgia Gov. Kemp campaigns for Herschel Walker: ‘We can’t rest on our laurels’
Republican Georgia Governor Brian Kemp kicked off the campaign trail with Republican state Senate candidate Herschel Walker as the two try to elect Walker in the upcoming Senate runoff race between the former NFL star and incumbent Democratic Senator Raphael Warnock.
“Look, we can’t rest on our laurels here,” Kemp told an audience of Walker supporters in a parking lot in Cobb County, Georgia, on Saturday. “Who do you want to fight for you in the United States Senate? Do you want a guy who represents our values like Herschel Walker, or do you want a guy who supported Joe Biden 96% of the time?
Kemp told the crowd that Walker will “fight for the values” of Georgia and “crush” Warnock, just as he crushed opposing players while leading the University of Georgia to a college football championship in 1980.
“I know Herschel Walker will go to the United States Senate and support our men and women in the military and our men and women in law enforcement,” Kemp said.

Kemp said the Dec. 6 runoff election will come down to turnout and will be decided by which side is more motivated.
