Georgia Republican United States Senate candidate Herschel Walker shared an anecdote about cows during a speech to supporters on Tuesday but never clarified how it applied to his scandal-plagued campaign.

The race, which could determine partisan control of the upper congressional chamber, has become defined by revelations that Walker – who claims to be pro-life – paid for abortions and fathered children with numerous women, whom he kept secret. Despite the glaring contradiction to the GOP's conservative platform, right-wing voters and lawmakers are standing by Walker. Their commitment to Walker was reaffirmed by incumbent Senators Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) and Rick Scott (R-Florida), who flanked him as he recited his barnyard tale.

"As they've been saying, something is better somewhere else and I'm here to tell you it's not. So I've been telling this little story about this bull out in the field with six cows and three of them are pregnant. So you know he's got something going on," Walker quipped.

"But all he cares about has kept his nose against that fence looking and three other cows that don't belong to him," Walker continued. "Now, all he had to do is eat grass. But no no no, he thought something was better somewhere else. So he decided, 'I wanna get over there.' So one day he measured that fence up and he said, 'I think I can jump this.' So that day came where he got back. And he got back and he took off running and he dove over that fence and his belly got cut up all over all in the bottom. But as he made it over, on the other side, he shook it off. He got so excited about it. And he ran to the top of that hill but when he got up there he realized they were bulls too."

As the audience laughed, Walker added that "what I'm telling you, don't think something is better somewhere else."
