Republican Herschel Walker has raised $10 million dollars since announcing his bid for U.S. Senate in Georgia.
The former NFL player has the full backing of Trump and also has a massive lead in the Republican primary. It looks like he is going to face off against Democrat Raphael Warnock in November.
He certainly has the war chest to do it.
FOX News reports:
Trump-backed Herschel Walker reports hauling in nearly $10M since launching GOP Senate bid in Georgia
Republican Senate candidate Herschel Walker is off to a very fast start when it comes to fundraising for his Senate campaign as he tries to unseat Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock of Georgia in the November’s midterm elections.
The former professional and college football star running back, who won a Heisman Trophy and helped propel the University of Georgia to a national championship, announced on Wednesday that his campaign pulled in nearly $10 million in fundraising from his late August launch through the end of last year. Walker’s campaign also reported raking in $5.4 million during the October-December fourth quarter of fundraising.
Walker’s team, which shared their fundraising figures first nationally with Fox News, showcased that their haul the past three months came from 44,364 individual donors from all 50 states…
Walker is considered the clear front-runner in the GOP primary, thanks to his high name recognition in the Peach State and the endorsement he received from former President Donald Trump – who for months encouraged Walker to run and who remains very popular and influential among Republican voters in Georgia and across the country. And recent polling suggests Walker holding a wide lead over his Republican rivals.
Walker is already calling out Warnonck on Twitter:
Democrats label anything they disagree with as racist. Georgia’s voting law does NOT prevent black people from voting like Senator Warnock says it does. This is not about voter suppression, it is about President Biden and the federal government wanting more power.

Walker should do very well in the midterms. He’s in an excellent position to win.
