In the aftermath of U.S. Sen. Raphael Warnock’s 2021 victory, Republicans lamented that they held back one of their toughest attacks until the runoff campaign: The bodycam footage of an altercation with the Democrat and his former wife in early 2020.
This campaign, GOP forces are deploying the footage earlier. The pro-Herschel Walker 34N22 political action committee aired a TV ad Tuesday that features video of Warnock’s ex-wife calling him a “great actor” to investigators after he denied her claims.
Republicans hope to use the incident to counter a torrent of attention surrounding Walker’s threats of violence against his ex-wife and other women, as well as the abortion controversy that has engulfed Walker.
