The Heisman Trophy winner filed paperwork on Tuesday establishing his campaign, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. An announcement is expected over the next few days, the outlet reported.

Walker, a friend of former President Donald Trump who has no experience in public office, will face off next year against incumbent Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock in what is expected to be among the most competitive Senate races in the United States.

Warnock defeated Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler in a special runoff election on Jan. 5 to finish out the term of former Sen. Johnny Isakson, who retired in 2019 for health reasons.

Trump began publicly and frequently encouraging a run from Walker, a University of Georgia alumnus with supreme name recognition in the state, after Loeffler’s loss to Warnock and former Republican Sen. David Perdue’s simultaneous defeat by Jon Ossoff gave Georgia two Democratic senators.

The political relationship between the former president and the former Celebrity Apprentice contender has been somewhat symbiotic over the past year.

This is great news!

Go Herschel!
