Herschel Walker appears to hint at US Senate run in latest social media post
Legendary Georgia running back Herschel Walker could be returning to the Peach State for a different kind of run.
Walker, who lives in Texas, got the attention of many political observers with his latest Twitter post. Walker tweeted “Georgia on my mind” to accompany a brief video that shows a Georgia license plate on Walker’s car.
“I’m getting ready. And we can run with the big dogs,” Walker says in the video.

Walker would be running in the Republican primary seeking the party’s nomination to challenge current Democratic incumbent Senator Rev. Raphael G. Warnock.
Walker has not held political office before but has vocally supported Republicans in recent elections. He spoke during the party’s 2020 national convention.
