Herschel Walker Thanks Josh Hawley For Ringing Endorsement: ‘No One Works Harder to Hold Our Leaders ACCOUNTABLE’

U.S. Sen Josh Hawley (R-MO) offered his ringing his endorsement of Georgia GOP senate candidate Herschel Walker in a tweet earlier today.

Hawley declared, “.@HerschelWalker is the real deal. Love his faith, his optimism, and his passion for Georgia and the United States of America.”

“He’s going to be a great Senator and I’m proud to endorse him,” Hawley added.

Walker quote tweeted Hawley and responded, “Thank you for your support, Senator! No one works harder to hold our leaders ACCOUNTABLE.”

“I look forward to joining you in the fight!” Walker emphasized, offering some insight into a potential Trump supporting alliance between the two, should Walker win next year.

Walker faced controversy earlier this week when he was criticized for being scheduled to attend a fundraiser with a conservative film producer who had a syringe swastika as her Twitter profile picture.

The event, at the Texas home of Bettina Sofia Viviano-Langlais, was ultimately “called off” by Walker’s campaign.

Walker’s campaign initially had contended the symbol wasn’t a swastika but a sign of opposition to vaccine requirements.

Bowing to pressure, in a statement after the cancelation, the campaign said, “Despite the fact that the apparent intent behind the graphic was to condemn government vaccine mandates, the symbol used is very offensive and does not reflect the values of Herschel Walker or his campaign.”
