Herschel Walker (born March 3, 1962) was the leading Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in the Georgia election in 2022. He was supported by Republicans, conservatives, and pro-lifers, including Alveda King of Georgia. He played college football for the University of Georgia Bulldogs, finishing a record-breaking all three years of his career in the top three in voting for the Heisman Trophy, and winning it his final year in 1982. He led the Bulldogs to a 33-3 record over his three years, and as a mere freshman led Georgia to win the 1980 national football title.
In the final two weeks of the campaign, Walker aired an ad of the beloved Georgia Bulldogs coach, Vince Dooley, endorsing Walker. The day before the big Georgia-Tennessee football game the weekend prior to the election, Herschel Walker called out the Leftist Warnock for having a campaign bus with Tennessee license plates: "Instead of supporting a Georgia business, Warnock used his California campaign dollars to buy a bus from Tennessee. ... Georgia deserves a senator who stands with and fights for the people of Georgia, our businesses, our families and our way of life. Go Dawgs!"
Walker, perhaps the finest athlete of his generation, also competed on his college team in track in 1982, earning All-American honors in the indoor 60 meter dash and the outdoor 100 meter sprint. He has further excelled as a bobsledder and mixed martial artist. He reportedly sleeps merely a few hours each night, and eats amazingly little as his daily diet.
Walker has long been one of the Greatest Conservative Sports Stars. A strong supporter of his longtime friend, former U.S. President Donald Trump, Walker won the Republican nomination in 2022 to run against the incumbent liberal Raphael Warnock in the general election with a landslide victory of 68%.
While the liberal media try to boost the image of the NFL by associating it with Walker, the NFL was actually biased against Walker and wrongly excludes him from its Hall of Fame (as the NFL delayed induction of another Christian, Tim Brown). Walker was a football star long before he played in the NFL, and he far transcends the cesspool of the NFL. The media should properly describe Walker as a football star, not merely a former NFL player.
Victim of Liberal "October Surprise"
On October 4, 2022, liberals ambushed Walker with a despicable "October Surprise," accusing him of something improper more than a decade ago. Walker denied the accusation, brushed it off, and saw continued unwavering support by Republicans and independents. Indeed, the October Surprise by Dems appeared to have been a tactical mistake for them as Walker subsequently took the lead in polls after winning his debate against the liberal pastor Warnock.
