Herschel Walker is the Republican candidate for Senator in the state of Georgia.
Walker must have known he’d have his past thoroughly dredged up—and it has been. It includes allegations that he made threats of violence toward family members. He himself admitted he had to deal with some psychological problems and is now over them. Add to that the massive attacks on his intelligence and character by Democrats and it’s almost surprising that he’s running even against his Democratic opponent, Raphael Warnock.
Let’s remember some of Walker’s positive accomplishments. A native-born Georgian, Walker was an all-pro and played 12 seasons in the NFL. He won a Heisman Trophy and the National Championship while at the University of Georgia. Walker is a winner and has the determination to rise above adversity to succeed. He must have known that the embarrassing allegations would be dredged up and used against him, but he’s running for the Senate regardless. We all make mistakes in life and Trump has made them too, but both Trump and Walker were willing to have their mistakes get exposed because they genuinely care about America and they want to help make it great again.
