(FiveNation.com)- Republican Lt. Governor of Georgia Geoff Duncan has admitted that he did not cast his ballot for Herschel Walker in the state’s Senate runoff.
On Wednesday, Duncan admitted to CNN that despite spending an hour in line to cast his ballot, he ultimately chose not to do so. The polls are open for early voting and will close on December 6.
Walker is facing Democratic Senator Raphael Warnock in a close election after November 8 saw no candidate earn fifty percent of the vote. It’s also anticipated that the outcome would be tight.
Duncan said he was one of those guys who got in line and spent about an hour waiting, and it was the most dismal ballot he’d ever glanced at in his entire life since he started voting.
“I had two candidates, but I couldn’t find a reason to support either. As a result, I left that voting booth after turning up to cast my ballot but not doing so for any of them,” he stated.
Duncan has already voiced doubt about Walker’s election bid. In October, he admitted to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that Walker still hadn’t won him over.
At the time, he declared, like many other Georgians, he was not voting for Senator Warnock, but Herschel Walker had not yet earned his vote.
With approximately a month until the midterm elections, Duncan remarked, “He’s got four weeks left to change our minds.”
Donald Trump, the former president, has endorsed Walker, but Trump isn’t anticipated to campaign for Walker in the state. The failure of several prominent Trump supporters in the most recent elections, notably celebrity surgeon Dr. Mehmet Oz in the Pennsylvania Senate campaign, may have impacted that choice.
Duncan declined to run for re-election as Georgia’s lieutenant governor this year and has been outspoken in his criticism of baseless assertions that Trump was the victim of voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election.
