Herschel Walker's slim route to a runoff win + where Dems spotted Warnock's weakness

Stephen Lawson joins the #pod, plus a fresh new story on the runoff drive.

Stephen Lawson is a Republican operative who has worked for Govs. Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis in Florida before moving to Georgia where he signed on with Kelly Loeffler’s 2020 Senate campaign.

He’s now working on behalf of the super PAC that is trying to pull Herschel Walker across the finish line in Tuesday’s Senate runoff.

On the final installment of Georgia week’s series of #pods, Lawson chats about the different dynamics between the 2021 and 2022 Georgia runoff, the yawning gap between the popularity of Donald Trump versus Brian Kemp and whether another Republican would’ve been a better option than Walker.

PLUS:

My newly dropped piece on McClatchyDC on where Democrats flagged Warnock’s problem areas.

“There was a lack of presence of showing up and there was also a feeling that this is kind of metro Atlanta Warnock and metro Atlanta [Stacey] Abrams and our issues aren’t as front and center to some of those folks,” said Garrett. “The funny thing is that Herschel Walker is such a historically bad candidate that a lot of those people didn’t show up the first time around, because … there was some disbelief that he could win.”
