Warnock, a first-term Democrat, and his Republican challenger, Walker, faced Friday night in Savannah in their only debate ahead of next month’s midterm elections. The two clashed over abortion and inflation, two issues that have been at the heart of midterm races across the country.

“Herschel Walker, I think he’s ill-suited and ill-prepared for a position like this,” Simon told Fox News. “And I’m not convinced of Warnock’s candidacy.”
“I don’t think he had the impact that was expected of him,” he added.

Walker, a former professional football star, has recently come under fire as he continues to deny a report he paid girlfriend abortion 13 years ago. A pro-Voice Choice candidate, Walker repeatedly called the allegation a “brainless lie.”
The controversy was further strengthened after his ex-wife’s son, conservative influencer Christian Walker, tweeted that his father was not a “family man” and accused him of abusive behavior.
“None of them are perfect, but I prefer Raphael Warnock,” Olivia told Fox News. “I just saw a lot of bad things about Herschel Walker. Even his own son didn’t support him.”
