Football legend and Trump supporter Herschel Walker has raised $3.7 million for his Georgia Senate campaign.
Walker said in response to the haul “Though we only had 5 weeks to fundraise this quarter, tens of thousands of Georgians and patriots across the country stepped up to the plate to help us take back the United States Senate. We are grateful for each and every cent and look forward to continuing to travel across this great state shaking hands with real Georgians and hearing about the issues facing their communities.”
Per The Hill:
The hefty haul shows that donors are backing Walker’s high-profile bid to take on Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-Ga.), who first won his seat in a special election last year and will have to run for a full term next year.
Walker, who is running with former President Trump’s endorsement, has largely refrained from holding events on the campaign trail, but the latest fundraising figures show that he has still been able to flex his financial muscle without extensive glad-handing with voters.
Walker’s campaign said in a statement that it had garnered funds from nearly 50,000 individual donors in all 50 states and that it is averaging $100,000 in donations per day.
