Americans need to be involved in Georgia's upcoming runoff election because "American values are at stake," retired NFL star Herschel Walker, a Heisman Trophy winner from the University of Georgia, said Tuesday. 

"You got two people running from the Democratic Party that don't have any values of the American ways," said Walker on Fox News' "Fox and Friends."   

Rev. Raphael Warnock, who is running against incumbent GOP Sen. Kelly Loeffler, "claims to be a minister" but doesn't "believe in forgiveness, doesn't believe in togetherness," said Walker. And Jon Ossoff, the Democrat challenging Republican Sen. David Perdue, "believes in China more than he believes in the United States of America."

And most of the money both have raised has come from outside Georgia, said Walker. 

"You have somebody like Chuck Schumer saying when they take over Georgia, I love America," he continued. "I like the way America is. There are ways we can fix things. We don't need to change it. I think what we need to do is change the people in Washington more than we need to change any states."

However, he added that he thinks Georgia voters are concerned that only legal votes will be counted, after the controversy over the presidential race. 

"They are concerned about the leadership there in Georgia right now whether they have the spine to stand up against all of the terrible things that's going on," said Walker. "They should be standing with this president. They don't seem to be standing with him. So people have lost a little bit of faith in the leadership there. But I think they are still being very vigilant and going out to vote because I have told them more than once every legal person that can vote need to get out and vote."

He said he also tells people not to worry about the presidential election, because President Donald Trump will take care of that, but instead to work to keep Loeffler and Perdue in office.

"Keep these radical left people out of office," said Walker. "We need to put something in place that if you don't believe in the Constitution of the United States of America, how can you run for office here. I'm just shocked that nobody would ever say anything about that."
