Former President Donald Trump has issued an official endorsement for Herschel Walker, a football legend, who will be running for the U.S. Senate in Georgia.
Trump’s issued a statement saying, “Herschel Walker is a friend, a Patriot, and an outstanding American. [He is] going to be a GREAT United States Senator.”
This particular endorsement is extremely important as Georgia will be ground zero for Republicans retaking power in the Senate.
Republicans lost both seats in Georgia during the runoff elections and will need them back. The current 50-50 Senate split is a major problem for Republicans hoping to stop President Biden’s agenda.
Trump continued saying, “Herschel Walker will never let you down. He was a great football player and will be an even better U.S. Senator—if that is even possible.”
Trump understands the importance of the Senate races in Georgia and is confident in Walkers capabilities to win. Now all that remains is for Walker to take the fight to Georgia Democrats.
