Appearing as a guest on the Clay Travis and Buck Sexton Show, former President Trump said NFL legend Herschel Walker told him he plans to challenge Democrat Senator Raphael Warnock for Georgia Senate.
“He told me he’s going to,” Trump said in a scoop. “I think he will. I had dinner with him a week ago. He’s a great guy, he’s a patriot, and he’s a very loyal person. They love him in Georgia. He was the greatest running back in the history of the state. He is one of the best in the history of the country.”
Trump also speculated Walker, who spoke at the 2020 GOP convention, will win.
“I think he’d win. I think it would be very, very hard to beat Herschel. Beating him would be very tough. And I think he’s going to run,” Trump said.
Walker teased in a recent Twitter video “Georgia on my mind” saying he’s ready to “run with the big dogs.”
