Herschel Walker’s Empty Campaign Calendar Sparks Concern Among Georgia Republicans

Herschel Walker is the favorite for the Republican Senate nomination in Georgia despite a rocky rollout to his 2022 campaign that is unsettling some party activists.

The former professional football player and first-time candidate announced his highly anticipated Senate campaign on Aug. 25, and since then, he has proceeded to hold no public events, nor has Walker granted media access to local Georgia press, although he has spoken with Fox News, Fox radio and, over Labor Day weekend, Fox Sports, for a total of five interviews.

The Walker campaign said the candidate has been honoring speaking engagements and other commitments scheduled prior to launching his Senate bid and that political activity was in the works. But some Georgia Republicans, while pleased with Walker’s digital messaging and outreach, are growing impatient.

“Traditionally, people announce, then barnstorm the state. He appears to have gone back to the comfort of his war room,” said a frustrated Georgia GOP insider who is backing Walker over state Agriculture Commissioner Gary Black and a few other primary candidates.

The Walker campaign is disputing the notion that the new politician has been out of touch since launching his Senate bid while saying Friday in a text message exchange with the Washington Examiner that a swing across Georgia, to meet with voters, was in the works.
