Nebraska Republican Congressman Don Bacon appeared on Sunday’s edition of Meet the Press
OMAHA, Nebraska – Sunday’s edition of Meet the Press included a conversation between guest moderator Kristen Welker and Nebraska Republican Congressman Don Bacon.
Bacon, who is running for re-election against State Sen. Tony Vargas, was challenged about his support for a controversial Republican contender for a Georgia Senate seat.
Senator-elect Herschel Walker is competing against the incumbent, Senator Raphael Warnock.
This past week, a report accused former football player-turned-politician Walker of paying for the abortion of a former lover.
Here are Bacon’s comments.
“Absolutely, about policy positions. Senator Warnock is one of the most liberal and progressive individuals, according to Bacon.
“Herschel must now come clean and be straightforward. We are also aware that everyone makes mistakes, thus it is preferable to say “I’m sorry” and ask for forgiveness. But positions will eventually determine the outcome.”
Welker continued to question Bacon throughout the interview. Also requesting his stance on supporting former president Donald Trump if he campaigned for office in 2024.
Welker: “That you will not support former President Trump for the 2024 Republican candidacy.” However, if he is the party’s nominee, will you support him?
When we reach that point, Bacon will inform you.
Welker: “You are currently up for re-election, congressman. Numerous voters are interested in your stance on this subject. Will you support the former president if he becomes the nominee in 2024?”
“I have made my case for the primary,” said Bacon. That is as far as I wish to go at this time. In the end, we will prevail in November and regain control of the House and Senate in order to halt Joe Biden’s policy. We must force them back into the center. This is the subject of my attention.”
Thursday is the highly anticipated debate between incumbent Don Bacon and challenger Tony Vargas for the second congressional seat.
It will be shown live on wowt.com on Thursday at noon.
