Walker sticks to abortion denial, blames Democrats

WADLEY, Ga. (AP) — Georgia Republican Senate candidate Herschel Walker remained defiant Thursday following successive reports alleging that he encouraged accompanied by every one one other accompanied by paid for a woman's 2009 abortion accompanied by every one one other accompanied by subsequent fathered a child accompanied by her.

Digging inside on his denials of The Daily Beast's reporting, Walker, a football icon turned fame politician accompanied by every one one other accompanied by staunch abortion foe, blamed the stories on Democrats accompanied by every one one other accompanied by their "desperation" — a defending tactic that Walker's friend accompanied by every one one other accompanied by ally, former President Donald Trump, used to weather myriad controversies on his way to the White House.

"I know why you're here. I do," he told reporters following his earliest condition military operation speech since The Daily Beast's initial report Monday. "You're here since the Democrats are despairing to clasp on to this seat here, accompanied by every one one other accompanied by they're despairing to build this competition concerning my family."

He went on to repeat: "This abortion thing is false. It's a lie."

Walker promised inside the hours following a Monday report to sue the report outlet, nevertheless has not followed up accompanied by confirmation he has done so. And he has yet to clarify why he at earliest said he had no indeed indeed idea what woman could exist making such an abortion claim, only to have The Daily Beast go nearer behind up Wednesday accompanied by the woman saying she had had a lengthy link accompanied by Walker that included a child he knows.

The allegations have rocked one of the nation's most important Senate matchups. Walker is inside a firm competition accompanied by Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock, accompanied by the consequence potentially determining which communal gathering controls the Senate for the final place of set of two years of President Joe Biden's term.

Walker's tempest hasn't shaken support among among Republicans inside Washington, where Senate jurisdiction supersedes almost all concerns inside a competitive race. But the latest turns have rattled some communal gathering faithful inside Georgia, mostly following the Daily Beast's follow-up report undercut Walker's cover denials.

"I'd exist lying if I said I wasn't getting calls from Republicans who are extremely worried accompanied by every one one other accompanied by struggling accompanied by what they're going to do inside the voting booth," Martha Zoller, a well liked radio host inside northern Georgia accompanied by every one one other accompanied by one-time congressional candidate, said inside an interview.

Indeed, Walker presents the latest balancing trial for devout accompanied by every one one other accompanied by ethnic conservatives who must measure the heaviness of their preference for Republican regulation opposed to an individual candidate accused of not reflecting their values. Trump, who urged Walker to sprint for the Senate, won the GOP presidential nomination accompanied by every one one other accompanied by the White House inside 2016 inside malice of actuality twice-divorced, on one instance a supporter of abortion rights accompanied by every one one other accompanied by same-sex marriage, accompanied by every one one other accompanied by actuality captured on band bragging concerning "grabbing" women by their genitalia.

Now, inside Walker, conservatives face another political novice who characterizes abortion while a woman "killing her baby," only to have allegations that he paid to extremity a gestation infrequent gravidity he helped conceive. Just months ago, excessively following a Daily Beast story, Walker acknowledged the actuality of trio children he'd not discussed publicly before, one now incidentally identified while the child of the woman who said she had the abortion. Those personal details go nearer on top of stories detailing Walker's exaggerations of labour achievements accompanied by every one one other accompanied by philanthropic efforts.

Zoller, the Georgia radio host, said that no indeed indeed "committed Republican" would ballot for Warnock nevertheless that numerous would exist convinced by concerning backing the Libertarian nominee or skipping the Senate competition altogether. "I exist convinced by most won't know until they're standing there inside the booth," she said. "That's how jarring these revelations are."

The condition tilted narrowly to Biden inside 2020 accompanied by every one one other accompanied by sent Warnock to the Senate place of set of two months later.

Even among national GOP luminaries, some of the defenses have been less than forceful.

"He had a a large amount of concussions coming not here of football; he suffered PTSD," said Newt Gingrich, a former Georgia congressman accompanied by every one one other accompanied by Republican House speaker, inside a short hour dated following praising Walker while "a remarkable person."

The Daily Beast still has not identified the woman by name, saying it wants to retain protected from danger her privacy.

The initial report included paper proof the woman provided. Those records include what appears to exist a $575 receiving for an abortion procedure, a get-well cardboard signed by Walker accompanied by every one one other accompanied by a border accumulation receiving showing a $700 personal inspect from Walker, dated five days following the abortion receipt.

In that story, The Daily Beast described the woman only while someone who was dating Walker inside 2009, at the hour dated of the abortion. Walker responded accompanied by conservative media interviews inside which he said he had no indeed indeed idea who could build the allegation accompanied by every one one other accompanied by at that hour dated dismissed the personal inspect by claiming, "I dispatch money to a a large amount of people."

The Daily Beast responded accompanied by the following report inside which the woman said she was so well known to Walker that, according to her, they conceived another child years following the abortion. She decided to convey on accompanied by accompanied by the subsequent pregnancy, though she noted that Walker, while he had all over the earlier pregnancy, expressed that it wasn't a convenient hour dated for him, the outlet reported.

Prior to his Senate bid, Walker had publicly acknowledged only his son, Christian Walker, whose mother was Walker's earliest wife. He acknowledged trio additional children while a consequence of reporting all over the campaign. But those children have not been featured inside his campaign.

Christian Walker, a high-profile communal media commentator who identifies while a conservative, has since Monday's Daily Beast report issued some statements accusing his father of lying concerning his past accompanied by every one one other accompanied by actuality an absent, brutal father accompanied by every one one other accompanied by husband.

Asked concerning Christian Walker on Thursday, he said simply that, "I deep affection my son so much. He's a great little man. I deep affection him to death. I will always deep affection him no indeed indeed matter what."

Warnock, for his part, turns questions on Walker accompanied by every one one other accompanied by abortion to the Republicans' opposition to the procedure, by preference than to Walker himself. He took that tack on one instance additional Thursday while he campaigned inside his hometown of Savannah, accompanied by his children, ages 6 accompanied by every one one other accompanied by 3, inside tow.

The Daily Beast said the Walker military operation declined to remark on Wednesday's story, accompanied by every one one other accompanied by the candidate offered no indeed indeed illuminating details all over his five-minute exchange accompanied by reporters inside south Georgia.

Walker began airing an ad this week, titled "Grace," inside which he mentions his struggles accompanied by intellectual sickness that he wrote concerning inside a 2008 memoir that details brutal threats he made opposed to his earliest wife. But the ad doesn't allude to the abortion allegations. That's not sufficient for someone accompanied by Walker's known accompanied by every one one other accompanied by alleged history, radio host Zoller said.

During his Senate primary, Walker publicly backed a national ban on abortions accompanied by no indeed indeed caveats — mostly notable at a hour dated when the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court precedent had been overturned accompanied by every one one other accompanied by Democrats inside Congress had been discussing codifying abortion rights into confederate law. When asked whether he'd permit exceptions inside cases involving rape, incest or a woman's health actuality at risk, Walker has said there are "no excuses" for the procedure.

As nominee, however, Walker has regularly sidestepped questions concerning that position, a tacit incline to the fact that most voters, including numerous Republicans, want at least some legal access to abortion.

His merchandise answer instead: "I'm for life."
