Ex-Football Star Herschel Walker Wins Georgia GOP Senate Nomination

Former University of Georgia football standout and pro-football running back Herschel Walker easily won the Republican Senate primary in the Peach State on Tuesday, lining him up to take on incumbent Democrat Raphael Warnock in November.  Walker defeated six other GOP candidates, including state Agriculture Commissioner Gary Black. The AP called the race an hour after polls closed.  Walker had 70.4% of the vote with 16% of precincts reporting.

Walker is going to have to be more public and better at handling the press if he has any chance at winning in November.
