McConnell Unites With Trump and Endorses Herschel Walker

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell joined with former President Trump in endorsing Herschel Walker for Senate. So far, Walker has attracted big name endorsements from GOP lawmakers, a move signaling the GOP is prepared to help Walker flip Georgia from blue back to red in next year’s election.

Walker has been a longtime Trump ally after playing for a team previously owned by the former president.

Fox News reports:

The senator’s endorsement, which was shared first with Fox News and Politico, signals that the GOP Senate leadership – and with it much of the party establishment in the nation’s capital — is rallying around Walker’s bid to challenge Democratic incumbent U.S. Sen. Raphael Warnock in a race next year that may determine if the GOP wins back the Senate majority in the 2022 midterms.

“I am happy to endorse Herschel Walker for U.S. Senate in Georgia,” McConnell said in a statement .”Herschel is the only one who can unite the party, defeat Senator Warnock, and help us take back the Senate. I look forward to working with Herschel in Washington to get the job done.”

Walker thanked McConnell for the endorsement and for “his commitment to bringing the party together toward the collective goal of defeating Senator Warnock. The Democrats have already said they will spend whatever it takes to keep Georgia blue. The stakes have never been higher — if we all work together, we will win next November, and take back the Senate.”

McConnell’s decision to endorse Walker comes after a yearlong feud between the Republican Senator and former President. Trump has repeatedly launched attacks at McConnell, pushing him to leave the Senate and pointing blame to him for losing Georgia to Democrats in last year’s elections.

McConnell still needs to go. I’d vote for Herschel based on his own personal merit as well as Trump’s endorsement. McConnell’s endorsement adds nothing to my assessment.

I did not need, and do not continue any semblance of needing, Trump’s endorsement of Hershel Walker. I would endorse Trump himself a lot more if he dropped all his angry and hate-filled rhetoric which is turning people away from voting for hun in 2024

Well Michael if you had gone through what our Great President Trump has been put through the last five years I think you might have a different way of seeing things !! President Trump was put through the BIGGEST HATE CRIME by the Democrates the world has ever see and still he did more for our Country and the American people then any other President in history. So before You start judging him I wish you would think and remember all he has been through and all he has done for America before I down grade him . How would you react ??

I don’t care about his rhetoric what I care about is that he keeps promises and puts America and its citizens first, kinda like families

Just because Trump has a backbone, unlike most of the GOP, you turn against him? You are as bad as the Dimwits led by Hussein.

McConnell reminds me of Claymore Gregg on “The Ghost and Mrs. Muir”. If he thinks it will profit himself in any way, shape, or form, he’ll tag along. He’s a conniving scumbag turncoat and someone needs to primary him well.

Wow! That is an old and obscure reference…that I actually recognize. Charles Nelson Reilly was so good in that role, too.

No connection between “The Turtle’s” endorsement and “making up” with Trump. Turtle just wants to be MAJORITY leader so he can enrich himself more! Hey, Kentuckians, how about you WISE UP?

This slight move by McConnell is good for the party, feuding never helped anything for our conservative party. Not a McConnell fan, but hopefully he will come around.

Is the “feud” over? No!!! As always, his endorsement is nothing but sheer, calculated, political positioning. How quickly we forget that this slim bag was trashing Walker not that long ago.
And it was never a “feud” between President Trump and McTurtle. It was all out warfare between a policy of what is best for America and a despicable, venal, self-interested, globalist. He all but tried to knife Trump on the Senate floor, like Brutus in Julius Caesar!
If that creature, McConnell, told me it was day, when the sun was out, I wouldn’t believe him

Since President Trump has been telling everyone listening not to trust Mitch for several years I doubt if there is a “smidgen” (as BHO likes to say) of a chance that DJT would trust him or any other RINO in Congress! This is just fake headlines to get everyone to read the article, in my humble opinion…..😎

Be careful when a 2 faced politician endorses you just like a rino can not be trusted

Mitch McConnell still has got to go. He hurt us big time through out my President Trumps time in office. Do nothing McConnell. He was the one who started bickering about our President Trump. Anyway President Trumps endorsement was the big one along with several others. McConnell I doubt helped much at all. He was there because he wants his power back my hope would be they vote him out when we take back the senate.
