On Wednesday evening, far-left MSNBC anchor Joy Reid accepted Republican Georgia Senate candidate Herschel Walker’s offer to debate him, but only under one particular condition.
Walker requested the debate after Reid criticized him in a Tuesday tweet for pronouncing “erection” instead of “election.”
The misstatement occured during a Fox News interview with Republican Senators Ted Cruz of Texas and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina.
The senatorial candidate stated that because he believed he dominated the October discussion against Warnock, he will do it again against Reid.
Reid accepted the challenge, but warned that he would have to dispute her one-on-one.
“Okay, Herschel, come on. It ain’t but a short walk. No seriously, we’ve reached to your team. We will have you on “TheReidOut” any day and we can debate. Just tell us when. But I do want to make one thing clear, Herschel, you can’t bring your friends.” Reid said.
Reid then displayed four photographs of Walker’s televised appearances with Cruz and Graham, as well as South Carolina Republican Senator Tim Scott, who have been key supporters of his triumph in the Georgia runoff against Democratic incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock.
Prior to the Georgia midterm election, which is now headed to a runoff on Dec. 6, the two senators mostly campaigned with Walker.
Walker barely behind Warnock in the contest, with the Democrat receiving 49.4% of the vote to Walker’s 48.5%, with more than 95% of the vote counted.
To be considered the victor, a candidate must receive more than 50% of the vote in Georgia.
Walker raised $3.3 million on the first day of his runoff campaign and has previously stated that he plans to organize rallies in heavily populated places to gain the support of Republicans, former President Donald Trump supporters, and Independent votes.
The Trump-backed Republican has been under a significant amount of critical media coverage after two women accused him of paying for their abortions in the early 1990s and again allegedly in 2009.
Walker has continuously rejected these allegations, however he did confess in an NBC News interview that he did sign a $700 check in 2009 for one of his accuser’s abortions.
