Their relationship dates to the early 1980s, when Trump’s short-lived pro football team signed Walker. The two have remained close, and Trump endorsed Walker even before he entered the Senate race last year, calling him an “unstoppable” political force.
Following an election eve-rally at Georgia Tech, Warnock told reporters that the virtual event underscored Walker’s relationship with Trump, even with Trump not physically present.
“Whether he comes or not, we know that [Walker] is Donald Trump’s hand-picked candidate and that he was recruited by Donald Trump and has come to Georgia from Texas, trying to represent Georgia while still getting his homestead exemption from Texas,” Warnock said.
“The people of Georgia deserve a Senator who is going to work for the people of Georgia and not any former president or current president.”
