U.S. Senator John Cornyn Endorses Herschel Walker in Georgia Senate Race

Texas Senator John Cornyn endorsed Herschel Walker in the race for U.S. Senate in Georgia this week, adding his name to a long list of prominent Republicans who have endorsed the leading Georiga GOP candidate.

Polling with over a 50 percent lead in all recent polls testing the GOP primary field, Walker is the favorite to face U.S. Senator Raphael Warnock (D-GA) in the November general election.

In a tweet, Cornyn said, “Proud to endorse @HerschelWalker for Senate. The road to taking back the Senate leads through Georgia, and Herschel is the man for the job. He will fight inflation, secure our borders, and back our police. We are on board @teamherschel!

Walker tweeted, “Thank you @JohnCornyn for your endorsement! Together, we can work to win this seat and save the American Dream for every American, no matter who you are or where you come from. Glad to have you on @teamherschel!

Walker continues to rack up endorsements in the U.S. Senate race. In March, the Walker campaign touted the endorsements of U.S. Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX), Bill Hagerty (R-TN), and Tommy Tuberville (R-AL).

Cruz said of his endorsement at the time, “I’m proud to endorse Herschel Walker for U.S. Senate in Georgia. Herschel is a fighter who will work to protect our Constitution, secure our borders, and fight to make America energy independent again.”

Hagerty said he was “pleased” to endorse Walker.

“I may be from the great state of Tennessee, but I know that we can’t get America back on track without a patriot & friend in the Senate from Georgia. Join me in supporting Team Herschel,” he said.

Tuberville simply said, “Winners win.”

The Georgia Star News previously reported that the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC) issued a rare primary endorsement for the former football star. In a statement, the NRLC said, “National Right to Life is pleased to endorse Herschel Walker for the U.S. Senate. Herschel Walker will be a most effective champion for unborn babies and their mothers in Washington and he has demonstrated the passion and perseverance it takes to win the critically important Georgia Senate race.”

Walker is also endorsed by former President Donald Trump.

    If there was ever a reason to not vote for Herschel, this would be it. Major RINO Cronyn is a loser that we need gone for good.

    Pretty safe bet…

    I’m sure that Mitt will chime in at the last minute as well.
