Texas Senator John Cornyn endorsed Herschel Walker in the race for U.S. Senate in Georgia this week, adding his name to a long list of prominent Republicans who have endorsed the leading Georiga GOP candidate.
Polling with over a 50 percent lead in all recent polls testing the GOP primary field, Walker is the favorite to face U.S. Senator Raphael Warnock (D-GA) in the November general election.
FEC reporting shows that Trump-endorsed candidate for the U.S. Senate in Georgia, former NFL star athlete Herschel Walker has raised over $5 million for the 2022 Federal Election Commission first quarter reporting period.
The FEC first quarter reporting period covers the January 1, 2022 through March 31, 2022 time period.
Georgia Senate candidate and frontrunner for the GOP nomination Herschel Walker reacted to an article published by left wing publication The Nation that trashes Walker’s status as a black man and Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate.
In a tweet, Walker said, “As usual, the left and the media are making everything about race. I’m going to win this seat because Georgians know I’m the most qualified for the job.”
