  1. Warnock has won the senate seat, however for a man with “rev” in front of his name, he threw a lot of stones. Personally , I have much more respect for a thief, who will up front state that he is a thief, than a person who says he is honest and then steals from you. Warnock claims to be a man of God, yet he published many condemning ads against Walker. The truth of which, or the exaggeration of same, I do not know, but I saw many and I condemns Warnock for publishing them, simply because he violated the ethics promoted by the Bible while at same time claiming to be a man of GOD.

  2. 4:52 AM, December 7, 2022… Despite Cal’s published statement last evening, Walker did not “squeak” out a win in his bid for a Senate seat. He lost. And Warnock was re-elected. Fake News at its finest.

    • For clarification, Cal was reporting on the countywide election results at 9:40pm that showed Walker with a lead of just 491 votes (unofficial), again within the county. Yes, he may have won in Fayette County (ever so slightly) but not in the state’s overall tabulation where victories are determined.
