ATLANTA – Yesterday, Herschel Walker and the RNC held a roundtable discussion and press conference with Black business leaders in the community.
“About 22 years ago, I started a business, which is now one of the largest minority-owned food service companies in the United States of America,” said Herschel Walker. “In building that business, I went through some difficult times, but I can’t imagine trying to start my business right now, in an economic recession with record inflation and supply chain issues. I wanted to have these listening sessions and find out what other people are going through…
“My goal in holding these listening sessions is to see how we come together, and how we can help each other to grow, and to have the opportunity to listen to Georgians’ problems so that I can go to Washington and help them — not just minority-owned businesses, but all businesses.”
RNC National Spokesperson, Paris Dennard, moderated the roundtable and spoke of what Herschel’s experience will offer minority-owned business owners across the state of Georgia in the U.S. Senate.
“We are 100% behind Herschel,” said Paris Dennard. “…the Biden administration, the Democrats’ policies, they just aren’t working. They’re failing every single day. They’re trying to convince Black America that things are better. Things are great that they built, but we know it’s not true. And we’re going to hear firsthand from elected officials and business owners to talk about the importance of having conservative policies in place that empower that uplift got really grow and so that these black businesses across the country, especially here in Georgia, can not only thrive but survive.”
