Trump confident in Hershel Walker’s ability to mount successful Senate campaign

Retired NFL star Herschel Walker has hinted at a possible run for the U.S. Senate in Georgia next year, attracting the attention and apparent support of former President Donald Trump.

In his latest remarks about Walker’s possible political future, Trump said during an interview this week that he expects to see a Senate campaign emerge in the coming months.

“He’s a very loyal person”

The former president went on to share his belief that Walker would easily defeat incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA).

Democrats swept both of the state’s U.S. Senate seats in a pair of runoff elections earlier this year, which secured the party’s razor-thin legislative majority in the upper chamber. Warnock replaced Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA), who was appointed after the 2019 resignation of Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-GA).

The Democratic senator’s truncated term ends in 2023, and Trump revealed that Walker has “told me he’s going to” throw his hat in the ring.

As for the likely candidate’s chances, Trump said the Heisman Trophy winner remains highly popular among the state’s voters.

“He’s a great guy, he’s a patriot, and he’s a very loyal person,” the former president said. “They love him in Georgia. He was the greatest running back in the history of the state. He is one of the best in the history of the country.”

“Humbled by the encouragement”

Trump concluded with his belief that “it would be very, very hard to beat Herschel,” reiterating his confidence that Walker is “going to run.”

Walker, who also played for a team Trump owned in the short-lived United States Football League, endorsed both of Trump’s presidential campaigns and addressed the Republican National Convention last year.

As for receiving the former president’s approval, Walker said that he is “humbled by the encouragement from people all around Georgia and across the country who want me to run,” adding that he is “honored to have President Donald J. Trump’s encouragement, too.”

At that time, though, he was not willing to announce a final decision on a possible Senate bid, adding: “We are looking at the race closely and we will make a final decision sometime soon.”

With other Republicans, including Loeffler, rumored to be mounting their own campaigns, many of Walker’s supporters are calling on him to enter the race soon to gain maximum facetime with the state’s voters.

  6. I think that Walker would be great in that position, and it is great to have black people serving as Republicans! The Democrats, who are the party of slavery, and always have been, don’t like black Republicans, because they feel that they own the blacks! Remember what that idiot, Biden, said to a black man, who told him that he didn’t know if he would be voting for Biden? Biden told him, if you ain’t voting for me, you ain’t black! That pretty much says it all right there!

    1. R. Short, you hit it head on Democrats have always been a party of me first you second. Hopefullly more young colored folks will et up and be counted. Herschl Walker is a good choice, R.Warnock is a Democratic loser he is a big party man and helps him self to back pocket..
