President Trump joined the Clay Travis and Buck Sexton Show in June. He told the hosts he thinks former football great Herschel Walker will enter the US Senate race in Georgia as a Republican.
Herschel Walker is a conservative favorite and leads Marxist Senator Raphael Warnock in the 2022 race and hasn’t even announced his candidacy yet.
But RINO Senators Mitch McConnell, John Thune and John Cornyn were hoping he doesn’t run for some reason.
They know he is a Trump Republican and they don’t want him in their elite club.
But tonight there is good news.
On Wednesday Herschel Walker filed papers to run for US Senator from Georgia.
Former University of Georgia and NFL running back Herschel Walker filed to run for the U.S. Senate in Georgia, making him the highest-profile Republican to jump into the race against incumbent Democratic Senator Raphael Warnock.
Walker’s campaign filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission on Tuesday. He’s untested politically, but enters the race with nearly universal name recognition in Georgia, where he won the 1982 Heisman Trophy as a running back for the University of Georgia. Former President Trump, who has known Walker for decades, and some of his allies urged Walker to enter the race.
