Herschel Walker Divides The Republicans
Raphael Warnock is going for a full six-year term. This will be done in the year 2022. The senators had been able to bag a narrow win at the special election that took place in the month of January. He is a top Republican target for the moment.
Former President Trump and his allies are of the strong view that Herschel Walker has the ability to secure a win for the party. He will unite the party that stands to be torn by the losses that were incurred in the year 2020.
