Trump Wants Herschel Walker To Run For Georgia Senate

Videos by OutKick

Herschel Walker once dominated as a running back in the NFL as well as the old USFL, on a team owned by former President Donald Trump. And now Trump is hoping Walker will run again.

Only this time, Trump wants Walker to run for something other than a touchdown. He wants Walker to run for political office.

“Wouldn’t it be great if the legendary Herschel Walker ran for the United States Senate in Georgia?” Trump wrote in an official statement. “He would be unstoppable, just like he was when he played for the Georgia Bulldogs, and in the NFL. He is also a GREAT person. Run, Herschel, Run!”

Walker has been a big Trump supporter through the years, dating back to their time with the USFL’s New Jersey Generals. Walker attended the Republican National Convention over the summer to praise Trump. He said that the two had developed a “deep, personal friendship.”

Walker played for the Dallas Cowboys, Minnesota Vikings, Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants in the NFL. He is a Georgia native and played for the University of Georgia. So far, he has yet to express an interest in a political career.

But if Trump has any influence, perhaps Walker will run again, and this time, for something entirely new.

  1. Herschel is a Georgia legend and would probably win easily, but I can’t imagine him running. He’s a no nonsense guy and there’s a shitload on nonsense in DC. Hopefully Trump can persuade him.

  2. i don’t think Georgia can be saved.

    can’t wait to see Georgians complain about Biden coming for their guns and pushing drivethru abortion clinics.

    i can’t think of one single Georgia value that aligns with DC democrats and yet they joined them. just need stacy abrams to seal the deal. what a messed up state. decent airport and peach vodka. thats it.

  3. Georgia blew it beg time not bringing back those two incumbent senators especially against two really radical weak lefties a big missed opportunity and I was a bit more than surprised but there ya go I do like Walker though

  4. Wish he would but afraid for his freedom if he had to suffer being around the self important asswipes in DC for long.He might loose control and give a couple what many of us would pay obscene money on PPV to watch.
