ATLANTA – Today, the National Border Patrol Council announced their official endorsement of Herschel Walker for U.S. Senate, and Herschel Walker released the following statement.
“I’m honored to be endorsed by the National Border Patrol Council,” said Herschel Walker. “On the campaign trail, I’m often reminded of how Georgians don’t feel safe in their communities, and our law enforcement heroes are being abandoned — and even demonized — by our leaders in Washington. By voting with Joe Biden over 96% of the time and pushing a soft-on-crime and open border agenda, Raphael Warnock has done more for criminals than law enforcement officers. I will always back the blue, and I will work to support them in the U.S. Senate.”
By working with law enforcement for many years and traveling around the state to meet with members of their community, Herschel has proven his commitment to securing the border, upholding law and order, and backing the blue in the U.S. Senate. The President of the National Border Patrol Council released the following statement.
“On behalf of the National Border Patrol Council, I am proud to announce our endorsement of Herschel Walker for U.S. Senate,” said Brandon Judd, President of the National Border Patrol Council. “With border crossings up 78% since last year, we are experiencing an influx of crime, drugs, and human trafficking in this country. Georgia citizens are paying the price of the irresponsible soft-on-crime policies from Raphael Warnock and Joe Biden firsthand. It’s time to elect a strong leader who will always prioritize the safety of Georgia and U.S. citizens, and that person is Herschel Walker.”
