(CNSNews.com) - Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Wednesday that the reason why liberals are so intent on defeating Hershel Walker’s bid to become the next senator from Georgia is because if Walker” becomes a Republican, maybe every other young child in America of color might want to be a Republican.”

Graham said that “everybody in San Francisco” will “jump off a bridge” if Georgia elects Hershel Walker as senator, because it will be a black conservative beating a black liberal.


Walker told Fox News’ “Hannity” that the latest allegation against him that he pressured a woman into getting an abortion is “a lie,” and he hopes everyone see that “they would do and say anything for power and they don't realize they're messing with the wrong Georgian here.”

“This seat is too important for me to stand by or to step down, so now they're going to have to come through me to get to anyone else, because if they can do it to me, they're going to come after you next. I'm going to be in the way, so I'm going to go out and win this seat, and I think after Senator Warnock showed he was a terrible debater. Now they want to come after me with something else, but it's a lie, and I want everyone to know it's a lie,” he said.

Graham said that “if you're a conservative, they don't give a damn about the truth.” 

“They’re trying to destroy his life 13 days before the election,” the senator said.

He pointed to the rape allegations made against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearings as an example.


They did the same thing to Kavanaugh. There's another one and another one and another one. It got to be six. Three people out and out lied. Nothing happened to them. How did that movie end? Kavanaugh is on the Supreme Court. Hershel’s going to the Senate, and what is this all about?

Why Hershel? They’re beating all of our guys up, but what is it about this guy? He changes the entire narrative of the left - we’re a party of racists. Sean, me and you are racists. The Republican Party is racist. 

Well what happens when the Republican party elects and nominates Herschel Walker, an African American, black Heisman trophy winner, right, Olympian? It destroys the whole narrative. John James, Tim Scott, Herschel Walker. Everybody in San Francisco is going to jump off a bridge if we elect this man. A black conservative beats a black liberal in Georgia. 

They're trying to ruin his life, team herschel.com. He's going to win this race. They've outspent him 3-1. It’s no accident this crap comes out right before we vote on Kavanaugh. It's no accident it comes out 13 days right before the election by a liberal lawyer in L.A. who is the Democratic delegate in the 2016 convention. Again, anonymous, unverified. 

They're scared to death of Herschel Walker because if Herschel Walker becomes a Republican, maybe every other young child in America of color might want to be a Republican. That's what they're trying to do. Don't let them get away with it. 

Walker said that the left won’t talk about the domestic abuse allegations against his opponent, Sen. Raphael Warnock, and Walker doesn’t “look for them to talk about it,” because he doesn’t want to talk about it.

What I want to talk about is his terrible record. His terrible record of voting with Joe Biden 96% of the time, his terrible record about having no cash bail, his terrible record about letting prisoners out of jail, his terrible record about this inflation. He's the causes of it all. And the reason why is he was that deciding vote. He could have said no, and he didn't say no. 

That's the reason the border is wide open now. That’s the reason men is in young women’s sports. I'm going to put a stop to it, and I know that they’re afraid of it, and as I said, during the debate, you saw who should be a senator, and it’s Herschel Walker. He couldn’t answer a question. He got nervous. 

He got scared after the whole time I’ve been hearing how great he was. He’s an incredible speaker, but all of a sudden during the debate, he couldn't say a word because he knew I'm the man for this job and right now they're scared to death. They will do and say anything, but as I said earlier, they messed with the wrong Georgian right now. 

Graham pointed out that the Hunter Biden laptop got suppressed before the last presidential election.

The Hunter Biden laptop, it was supposed to be Russian disinformation right before the election, it was true. It got suppressed. Right before the election, you have an anonymous allegation from a lawyer in L.A. to try to affect the outcome in a Georgia race. They tried to destroy Kavanaugh because they wanted the Supreme Court seat. 

They’re afraid of this man coming into the Senate because he'll transform the Republican Party. We're not going to let them get away with it. I'm tired of it. I’m tired of seeing people I know have their lives destroyed because they're trying to serve their country as a conservative. The biggest fear of the left is African-Americans joining the conservative cause. 

The biggest fear of the left in this election is Herschel Walker winning this campaign. I want every liberal to be miserable come election night.
