ATLANTA – Yesterday, Team Herschel hosted a successful event in Ocilla, Georgia, with candidate for Georgia’s Agriculture Commissioner and State Senator Tyler Harper to launch the Farmers and Foresters for Herschel Coalition.
In his remarks, Herschel spoke about his plan to ensure agriculture remains the number one industry in Georgia and to continue his long-time support of Georgia’s hard-working agriculture community. Herschel also called out Raphael Warnock’s failure to support Georgia’s farmers and his support for Joe Biden’s inflation-driving agenda.
“Warnock voted for Joe Biden’s multi-trillion dollar reckless and out-of-control spending plans, and he has helped cause the highest inflation America has seen in 40 years,” said Herschel Walker. “Mothers can’t find baby formula. Farmers are paying more for fertilizer. Truckers can’t afford to fill up their tanks. Families are struggling to put food on the table. Input costs continue to skyrocket. Just remember this: Raphael Warnock has done more for Joe Biden’s bloated federal government than for Georgia’s farmers. It is time for Raphael Warnock to go.”
As a leader in the agricultural community for many years, State Senator Tyler Harper echoed Herschel’s remarks and highlighted the damage Raphael Warnock has done to farmers across Georgia.
“Agriculture is the number one industry in this state—but for it to continue to grow and be successful, we have to send the right type of leaders to Washington,” said Senator Tyler Harper. “Unfortunately, Raphael Warnock has taken our industry backwards by voting with Joe Biden nearly 100% of the time to increase food, fuel, and fertilizer costs for our families. I’m proud to support my friend Herschel Walker and Co-Chair his Farmers & Foresters coalition because I know he has what it takes to deliver results and fight for Georgia farmers and families—not the special interests in Washington. Working together, we will put Georgia’s farmers, producers, and consumers first and keep Georgia growing for generations to come.”
