Herschel Walker says there are 52 states

There are 50 states in the United States.

But in an interview Tuesday, Georgia GOP Senate candidate Herschel Walker said there are 52.

Walker chased Stacey Abrams, the Democratic candidate for governor, because she recently said, “I’m tired of hearing [Georgia] being the best state in the country to do business when we have the worst condition in the country to live. ”

Abrams cited the state’s problems with mental health treatment, maternal mortality, incarceration rates and wages. Republicans grabbed the remark and used it to criticize her, though Abrams said she stands by her belief that Republican Brian Kemp “is a failed governor who does not care about the people of Georgia.”

In an interview Tuesday with the Clay Travis and Buck Sexton Show, Walker said Abrams should move to another state – and said she has 51 others to choose from.

“If you do not believe in the country, leave and go somewhere else,” he said. “If it’s the worst condition, why are you here? Why do not you go – go to another? There are, what, 51 other states you can go to? ”

“Herschel was wrong – of course he knows there are 50 states,” Mallory Blount, a spokeswoman, told HuffPost.

Walker is a former NFL star whose campaign has been filled with controversy and misrepresentation.

He has struggled with allegations of domestic violence, and recently also allegations that he is an absent father. Walker regularly spoke about his 22-year-old son Christian and spoke out against fatherless homes. But The Daily Beast reported Walker actually has three other children about whom he does not speak in public. He has since recognized his four children, saying he “never denied any of my children.”

Walker also said he is skeptical of evolution, pointing to the fact that apes and humans coexist.

“Science once said that humans come from apes, right? … If this is true, why are there still monkeys? Think about it, ”Walker said in March.

After the massacre in Uvalde, Texas, Walker asked for “a department who can look at young men who look at women who look at social media, ”as a solution to stop school shootings, but it was not clear what it was or how it would solve the problem.
