Herschel Walker Announces Senate Campaign

Former college football star Herschel Walker is running to become a U.S. senator from Georgia.

The Heisman Trophy winner filed paperwork on Tuesday establishing his campaign, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. An announcement is expected over the next few days, the outlet reported.

Walker, a friend of former President Donald Trump who has no experience in public office, will face off next year against incumbent Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock in what is expected to be among the most competitive Senate races in the United States.

Warnock defeated Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler in a special runoff election on Jan. 5 to finish out the term of former Sen. Johnny Isakson, who retired in 2019 for health reasons.
