woman, who appeared at a news conference with attorney Gloria
Allred but withheld her name, issued the challenge two weeks
ahead of the Dec. 6 run-off contest in which Walker hopes to
unseat Democratic U.S. Senator Raphael Warnock.
Walker has called the woman's allegations, first made publicly
on Oct. 26, untrue. He has also denied the allegation of another
woman who claims he paid for her to have an abortion in 2009 and
that she later gave birth to one of his children.
Neither woman has revealed her identity publicly. Reuters has
not been able to independently confirm either woman's claim.
"Do you have the guts to meet with me in person, in public, look
me in the eye and tell me to my face that you don't know me and
that none of what I just said is true? I'm looking forward to
your response," the woman said on Tuesday.
The Walker campaign was not immediately available for comment.
The woman and her attorney presented voice recordings they
claimed to be Walker's. The attorney has said the woman has
years of material, including receipts and greeting cards,
documenting her romantic relationship with Walker from the late
1980s through the 1990s.
The Warnock-Walker race is going to a runoff because neither
candidate secured the necessary 50% of the vote in the Nov. 8
A Warnock victory would expand Democrats' razor-thin margin in
the Senate by one, giving President Joe Biden's party more room
