Georgia abuzz over Herschel's Senate tease
Herschel Walker, 59 — the Heisman Trophy winner and Georgia college football legend — tweeted a cryptic video last week suggesting he might enter the Republican primary for a chance to run next year against Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-Ga.), the New York Times reports.
The big picture: Former President Trump said in a March 10 statement: "Wouldn’t it be fantastic if the legendary Herschel Walker ran for the United States Senate in Georgia? ... Run Herschel, run!"
- "I'm gettin' ready," Walker, who lives in Texas, says over a revving sports car he calls "Hulk," with Georgia plates. "And we can run with the big dogs."
- "Georgia on my mind," the tweet says.
The bottom line: The Times notes that a Walker run would "go a long way toward firming up the 2022 pro-Trump roster in Georgia, where the former president has vowed ... to exact revenge on the Republicans who declined to support his false contention that he was the true winner."
