Herschel Walker has won the Republican primary in Georgia for U.S. Senate and will face off against Democrat Raphael Warnock in November.
Walker was endorsed by Trump and he ran away with the vote, it wasn’t even close.
Democrats have attacked Walker for months but none of it has worked so far.
Trump-endorsed Senate hopeful Herschel Walker wins Georgia Republican primary, will face Democratic Sen. Warnock, NBC projects
Herschel Walker, the former pro football player and businessman endorsed by ex-President Donald Trump, will win Georgia’s Republican Senate primary race, NBC News projected Tuesday.
Walker will face off against incumbent Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock in the general election in November, according to NBC. Warnock took office last year after winning a special election.
The outcome of the race could tip the balance of power in Washington, where Democrats hold a razor-thin majority in the Senate. The chamber is split 50-50 between Republicans and Democrats, and Democratic Vice President Kamala Harris holds the tie-breaking vote.
Walker was expected to easily win the GOP primary. But the politically unseasoned athlete, who has skipped debates and faced accusations of avoiding nonfriendly press, is likely to face more scrutiny in the general election…
Early polls of the hypothetical Walker-Warnock matchup show the candidates virtually tied, according to RealClearPolitics.
The primary races in Georgia, a swing state that narrowly voted for Biden in the 2020 election, also mark the biggest test to date of Trump’s enduring influence over the Republican Party.
Conservatives have a lot of faith in Walker’s chances.
Herschel Walker has officially won the Georgia Republican senate primary. He’ll take on Raphael Warnock in November. I think Herschel wins with ease.
