Former President Donald Trump has announced that retired football player Herschel Walker will run for a seat in the Georgia Senate in 2022.

Sen. Raphael Warnock currently holds the seat.

“He told me he’s going to, and I think he will. I had dinner with him a week ago. He’s a great guy. He’s a patriot. And he’s a very loyal person, he’s a very strong person. They love him in Georgia, I’ll tell you,” Trump said on the “Clay Travis and Buck Sexton Show.”

Trump believes Walker stands a good chance of winning.

“I think he’d win. I think it would be very, very hard to beat Herschel,” Trump continued. “They have the ballads, they made ballads to Herschel. They still sing them all the time. So I think beating him would be very tough. And I think he’s going to run.”

At times, Trump’s version of reality greatly contradicts the sane majority — but a recent statement from Walker indicates the former commander-in-chief may be telling the truth.

Walker issued a statement Tuesday asserting that he’s “looking at the race closely.” He says he will soon make a decision.

“Georgia is my home — I love Georgia, and I love this country,” Walker said in the statement. “And I believe we need fighters to step forward and help save both. Know this much: If I run, I’ll be all-in, and we will do whatever it takes to win for Georgia.”

Walker spent three years playing in the upstart (United States Football League) USFL. Two of those years were for a team that Trump owned. He then headed to the NFL after the collapse of the USFL.

The USFL recently announced its relaunch in 2022.
