Herschel Walker, the Republican candidate for Senate in Georgia, faces incumbent Democratic Senator Raphael Warnock in the most vicious election of the 2022 midterm election.
Democrats traditionally point to early vote turnout as a great sign for their candidate. Walker appeared on Fox News earlier this week and pushed back against that notion, saying he sees Georgia’s early voter turnout as good news for his campaign.
“The people right now are having their voices heard, and their vote counted, and I’m happy with the turnout because I think it looks good for me,” Walker said. “I think the people that are coming out from what I hear and see, it’s going to be a good thing for us.”
The latest polling shows Warnock and Walker in a statistical dead heat.
Walker has weathered a new scandal around a $1,500 tax credit claimed on his Dallas, Texas home meant for primary residences. He also said in January that he considers Texas to be his home.
Former presidents Donald Trump and Barack Obama have campaigned for their party’s respective candidates. Even Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James waded into the race, endorsing Senator Warnock.
Georgia voters head to the polls on Dec. 6th to finally decide the election. Democrats have already won control of the Senate in 2023.
