Former Donald Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway accused Republican senators of deserting Herschel Walker ahead of his runoff reduction to Raphael Warnock (D) for senator in Georgia. (Observe the video underneath.)
Conway intensified the hand-wringing in her get together just after Democrats attained a 51-seat majority in the upper chamber. The midterm elections proved to be a disappointment overall for Republicans, particularly amongst candidates endorsed by Trump.
Conway claimed Republicans should learn early voting and “bank votes” when connecting with the electorate in a way that highlights GOP values.
“These are the policies. We both adapt or die as a party,” she mentioned on Fox News’ “Hannity.”
Conway questioned conservative senators who didn’t staff up with previous NFL star Walker prior to the runoff. (Walker’s problematic marketing campaign and endorsement from Trump possibly stored them at a length.)
“Where were most of you? Why weren’t you in Ga?” she claimed.
A number of lawmakers this kind of as Sens. Ted Cruz (Texas) and Lindsey Graham (S.C.) did look by Walker’s side in the buildup. But Conway claimed lots of extra need to have been there denigrating Warnock as the runoff neared.
“Where were being the other senators to say, ‘I want Herschel Walker, not Raphael Warnock, in the Senate with me’?” she questioned.
Conway’s former White Property manager has been accused of leaving Walker out to dry, even although The New York Instances documented that Trump and Walker’s camps thought the ex-president’s presence in Georgia could do far more harm than very good.
Discontent in the get together has bubbled up considering that the previous Heisman Trophy winner’s loss. Considerably-correct Dwelling member Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) blamed several of the GOP defeats on prominent figures in the celebration (but not Trump). She criticized Walker for not asking her for more assistance. Between conservative media, popular Fox Information hosts Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham declared they were being “pissed off” at the success.
