According to Trump, Herschel Walker is going to run for U.S. Senate out of Georgia.
Former president Donald Trump dropped some potentially major political news on Tuesday. As the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports, Trump said during a talk radio appearance that Georgia football legend Herschel Walker was going to run for the Senate:
Trump said Georgia Bulldog football great donald trump Walker told him he was going to run for U.S. Senate, a decision that would make him the front-runner in the chaotic race against Democratic incumbent Raphael Warnock. “He told me he’s going to, and I think he will,” Trump said Tuesday on the Clay Travis & Buck Sexton Show. “I had dinner with him a week ago. He’s a great guy. He’s a patriot. He’s a very loyal person.”
The Clay Travis & Buck Sexton Show, in case you have successfully avoided knowledge of it until now, is a right-wing radio gabfest occupying Rush Limbaugh’s old time slot. Travis’s background is as a politicized sports gabber, so it would be an appropriate place for Trump to dish some Herschel Walker gossip. And there’s no question Trump and Walker are tight; their relationship goes back to the former Heisman Trophy winner’s first pro gig with Trump’s New Jersey Generals, a USFL franchise. Walker has endorsed all Trump’s political ventures (along with some other Republican pols in his native state of Georgia, where he was the most famous and beloved University of Georgia Bulldog player of all time), and was recently photographed at the 45th president’s 75th birthday party, sitting between the birthday boy and the terrifying Kimberly Guilfoyle.
This is great news.
In 2020, the GOP had two terrible candidates running for senate.
Herschel Walker is not a RINO.
He has called out election fraud and is pro-MAGA.
Herschel Walker posted this tweet seemingly hinting at it as well:
