Team Herschel Launches Farmers & Foresters for Herschel Coalition

ATLANTA ­– Today, Team Herschel announced the launch of Farmers & Foresters for Herschel Coalition

“I am thrilled to launch Team Herschel’s first coalition, Farmers & Foresters for Herschel, and I’m encouraged by the momentum it’s already received,” said Herschel Walker. “Sen. Warnock’s endless support of reckless spending in Washington has hurt our agriculture community and caused skyrocketing gas, food and fertilizer prices. Sen. Warnock has done more for Joe Biden than he has for Georgia’s farmers and foresters.”

“Agriculture is the number one industry in our state, and I’m going to fight to keep it that way in the U.S. Senate. As founder and CEO of one of the largest minority-owned food service companies in the country, we work with Georgia’s farmers every day. I understand the struggles they are facing and how important it is to our economy to support them,” Walker said.

In addition to its launch, Team Herschel is happy to announce the following individuals as Co-Chairs:

State Senator Tyler Harper, Candidate for Commissioner of Agriculture

“As someone who has been a leader in the agricultural community for many years, I am proud to serve as a co-chair for the Farmers & Foresters for Herschel Coalition,” said candidate for Agriculture Commissioner Tyler Harper. “Raphael Warnock has voted with Joe Biden almost 100% of the time to cause food, fuel and fertilizer prices to skyrocket — and is working in lockstep with Stacey Abrams to make life harder for the farmers, producers and consumers of our state. I hope every Georgian — especially those in our agriculture industry — will join me in uniting behind Herschel Walker to help advance our state’s number one industry.”

State Senator Larry Walker III, Chairman, Senate Agriculture and Consumer Affairs Committee

“I was honored to be chosen as a co-chairman of the Farmers & Foresters for Herschel Coalition,” said State Senator Larry Walker III. “I think I speak for the entire agriculture community when I say we need a strong, conservative leader in the Senate who will fight for us. Herschel is the man for the job, and I encourage everyone to unite behind him and support him.”
