Republican Herschel Walker Has Raised Almost $10 Million Since Announcing Georgia Senate Bid in August 2021
“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”
Herschel Walker, the Trump-backed NFL alum running for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate in Georgia, has raised an impressive amount of campaign cash since announcing his candidacy.
Walker also has an impressive lead over other primary contenders.
It’s looking likely that Walker will be the one to run against Democrat Raphael Warnock in November.
Paul Steinhauser reports at FOX News:
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 bringing the fight to Warnock 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.

A pro-Walker PAC is also going after Warnock.
Tyler Olson recently reported at the FOX Business Network:
Pro-Herschel Walker PAC hits Warnock over gas prices, inflation in billboard ads
A super PAC supporting Georgia GOP Senate candidate Herschel Walker is spending more than $50,000 on a billboard campaign attacking Sen. Raphael Warnock over inflation and gas prices as the midterms loom later this year.
The PAC, called 34N22, after Walker’s number 34 from his playing days at the University of Georgia and in the NFL, says the billboards will appear in the major cities of Atlanta, Augusta, Macon and Savannah.
The two economically-focused billboards say “Inflation hurts families” and “Gas prices are insane.” Each includes the hashtag “#WarnockIsn’tWorking.”
A third billboard hits Warnock on law and order, saying, “Crime is killing Atlanta.”
Inflation and prices are at the top of voters’ minds, according to a FOX Business Poll released last month.
Real Clear Politics currently has the Georgia race categorized as a toss-up, but I suspect that will change in the near future, as people begin to pay more attention to the midterms.DONATE
