Trump Will Not Campaign for Herschel Walker as Runoff Election Approaches
(RepublicanDaily.org) – The curtain has not yet fallen on the 2022 midterm elections and won’t until the runoff election in Georgia pitting Republican candidate Herschel Walker against incumbent Democratic Senator Raphael Warnock. Walker had the endorsement of former President Donald Trump heading into the election on November 8; however, Trump reportedly will not hold a rally for the candidate in Georgia ahead of the December 6 runoff.
A report from The New York Times revealed officials with both Trump and Walker’s camps viewed the former president’s involvement in Walker’s campaign at this stage as more of a risk than an advantage. While a Trump rally might energize MAGA voters, they believe, it could also motivate Democratic voters, and might even alienate some moderate Republicans. The article noted that Trump backed two Republicans seeking to oust Georgia Governor Brian Kemp (R) and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R), and both lost easily.
During an appearance on Fox News, Walker stressed Trump was still a political ally of his and that the former president was still working to get him elected in next month’s runoff.

Do you think this decision reflects Donald Trump’s waning political attractiveness to voters outside his core support base?
