Former House Speaker sees ‘lots of momentum’ in New York gubernatorial candidate Lee Zeldin
Gingrich’s optimism for Walker came right after Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) was caught on hot mic acknowledging the Democrats’ anxiety for Georgia.
“The state where we’re going downhill is Georgia. It’s hard to believe that they will go for Herschel Walker,” Schumer told President Joe Biden in Syracuse, before adding: “But our vote, our early turnout in Georgia is huge—huge.”
Walker, a former NFL and college football star, is ahead of Democrat incumbent Raphael Warnock by 2 to 5 points in five polls from the past week.
