GOP candidate Herschel Walker has found himself in a tough runoff election for the Senate seat in Georgia —but he’s off to a good start. Walker has raised more than $3 million dollars in just one day since the runoff was announced.
From Fox News:
Walker, who finished roughly 35,000 votes behind Warnock out of nearly 4 million cast in the Senate election in the battleground state of Georgia, is returning to the campaign trail on Thursday, teaming up with conservative Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas at a rally in Canton, a small city about 40 miles north of Atlanta. Walker’s campaign tells Fox News that it plans to be back up on television with an ad later this week.
The Georgia Secretary of State’s office announced on Wednesday that the Senate election was headed to a runoff, since no candidate received over 50% of the vote. According to the latest unofficial and incomplete returns, Warnock was at 49.4%, Walker at 48.5%, and Libertarian Party nominee Chase Oliver at 2.1%.
Under Georgia law, if no candidate tops 50% of the vote in the general election, the two top vote-getters face off in a runoff, which this cycle is being held four weeks later on Dec. 6.
