An anti-Trump GOP group targeted Herschel Walker, the Republican Senate candidate in Georgia, with a new campaign ad that uses audio clips of his ex-wife accusing him of threatening to shoot her and other acts of violence while they were married
The Republican Accountability Project released a 30-second ad that begins with footage from Walker’s football career as a narrator says, “Think you know Herschel Walker? Well, think again.”
“Listen to what his ex-wife said about him,” the narrator says before the ad cuts to Walker’s ex-wife, Cindy DeAngelis Grossman, who then describes the alleged threats Walker made against her.
“His eyes would get really bad,” Grossman says. “Guns and knives. I got into some choking stuff with him.”

Then she says: “The first time he held the gun to my head, he put the gun to my temple and said he was going to blow my brains out.”
In December, Walker told Axios that he is “responsible” for what he did in the past after being asked a question about his relationship with Grossman and said he has dealt with his mental health issues.
“I’m always responsible for everything I’ve done,” Walker said. “And that’s what I tell people: I’m responsible.”
