President Trump has urged Georgians to cast their ballots for GOP U.S. Senate nominee Herschel Walker as early voting in the heated Senate runoff election kicks off in the Peach State. “Georgia, get out and vote for the GREAT Herschel Walker,” Trump wrote on Truth Social on Sunday. “HE WILL MAKE YOU PROUD!!!”
In the wake of the 2022 midterms, Walker’s race with incumbent Democrat Sen. Raphael Warnock was notably tight, prompting a runoff election.
Via RSBN, Walker’s campaign raised $11 million in the week after Election Day, indicating massive support for the Senate candidate in the great state of Georgia.
According to a poll from The Phillips Academy, Walker is leading Warnock by one percent, with Walker at 48 percent to Warnock’s 47 percent. Per their survey:
“Importantly, the 1% lead is within the margin of error (3.3%) and is significantly less than the number of undecided voters (5%).
Critical to Walker’s slight advantage are his narrow leads among independents and suburban voters. Walker maintains a 3% lead among independents, as well as a 3% lead among suburban voters—and, in past Georgia elections, these swing demographics have determined the outcome.”
Walker was endorsed by President Donald Trump in 2021. “Herschel Walker is a friend, a Patriot, and an outstanding American who is going to be a GREAT United States Senator,” Trump said in his endorsement. “He embodies the ‘America First’ and the winning spirit of Georgia.”
Walker has forged a tough and effective campaign in Georgia, strongly challenging his incumbent Democrat opponent. “I love Georgia,” Walker wrote on Twitter in November. “Growing up in Wrightsville, I learned that anyone can live the American dream if they work hard and put their faith in God. Every American child deserves to have a chance to live their own American dream. That’s what I’ll fight for in the Senate.”
