On Fox News, Paul Steinhauser outlines what will be a very tough Senate campaign in 2022. There are 20 GOP-held seats up for grabs in the Senate, and only 14 Democrat-held seats. But one seat Steinhauser singles out as particularly vulnerable is that of Sen. Raphael Warnock in Georgia. President Trump has encouraged former Heisman Trophy winner and NFL player Herschel Walker to run against Warnock. Steinhauser reports:
As Republicans aim to win back the Senate majority they lost in January when the Democrats narrowly swept Georgia’s twin Senate runoff elections, they’re playing plenty of defense, defending 20 of the 34 seats up for grabs, including five open seats – with two of them in the crucial battlegrounds of Pennsylvania and North Carolina.
But they also see opportunities to flip blue seats red in four states, including Georgia. And they view Sen. Raphael Warnock of Georgia as one of the most vulnerable Democrats running for reelection in 2022. Warnock defeated appointed Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler by a razor-thin margin on Jan. 5, to serve the final two years of the term of former GOP Sen. Johnny Isakson, who resigned in 2019 due to health reasons.
Many in the GOP are waiting for signals from Walker. The former star professional football player and college gridiron legend in the Peach State – he won a Heisman Trophy and helped steer the University of Georgia to a college football national championship – has been encouraged by Trump to run for the Senate.
