Walker, who faces Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA) for the seat, explained during the interview that he will go to work to lower taxes for Georgians.
“You’re going to see a warrior in Washington that will fight for the people of Georgia [and] fight for the people of the United States,” Walker said. “And what I mean by that is, I’m going to fight to lower your taxes.”
“I’m going to fight and not to have 87,000 IRS agents that’s going to come out to you,” Walker continued, pointing out that his opponent voted to create positions for tens of thousands of new IRS agents during his term.
Walker emphasized that Warnock voted to hire more IRS agents but voted against sending more Customs and Border Patrol agents down to the U.S.-Mexico border.
“And he [Warnock] also voted against 18,000 agents to be at the border, border customs agents down at the border,” Walker said. “He voted against that.”
While Americans have indicated that they care most about the economy in terms of how they will vote in this year’s midterm elections, abortion has also been a hot topic since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade.
Walker addressed the issue by standing firmly as a pro-life candidate, saying he wants to “save as many babies as I can.”
“You know, in Atlanta, you know, a lot of black babies have been aborted,” Walker said. “And you know, one of the things that I said before is Georgia is a state that respects life.”
“I want to be a … senator to protect life,” he continued. “I just want to go out and save as many babies as I can.”
While speaking on the issue of abortion, Walker also called Warnock, who is a reverend and a politician, a hypocrite.
“I hate to call him a hypocrite but I think people saw it in that debate,” stated Walker. “You know, whenever he got in trouble, he tried to throw different Bible verses out and my thing is, you got to read all of the Bible. Don’t just take a part of the Bible and read it.”
