Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-Ga.) faced off against his Republican opponent for the Georgia Senate seat, Herschel Walker, during the pair's only scheduled debate on Friday. The race has become among the most closely watched of the upcoming midterms, and Warnock looked to increase his reported four-point lead in the polls against Walker.

The raucous debate was a chance for Walker to defend himself against numerous allegations that have come out against him, specifically that the staunch pro-life candidate had paid for the abortion of a woman he got pregnant in 2009. Walker continued to deny the allegations. He also attempted to tie Warnock to President Biden's sinking approval numbers and rising inflation.
