“One thing that people don’t know is President Trump never asked me. I need to tell him that he never asked. I heard it all on television that he’s going to ask Herschel, saying Hershel is going to run. President Trump never came out and said, ‘Herschel, will you run for that Senate seat?’” Mr. Walker, a former NFL running back, told rapper Killer Mike in an interview on Revolt TV. “So, I’m mad at him, because he never asked, but he’s taking credit that he asked.”
Mr. Walker is set to face Sen. Raphael Warnock, a Democrat, in November’s general election, which could determine control of the upper chamber.
“He told me he’s going to, and I think he will,” Mr. Trump said on “The Clay Travis and Buck Sexton Show.” “He’s a great guy. He’s a patriot. He’s a very loyal person. They love him in Georgia, I’ll tell you.”
“I think beating him would be very tough,” the former president said. “And I think he’s going to run.”
