The decision just came in that Trump-backed Herschel Walker has just won the Georgia Republican primary for the US Senate.

This is fantastic news. Walker will make a great Senator from Georgia after he wins in November.
I spoke with @HerschelWalker after he voted today. I asked what he plans to do for the rest of the afternoon, he said he was going to “sell some chicken, watch Gunsmoke, and make some calls for the campaign!” He’s feeling confident heading into the evening #gapol pic.twitter.com/4oaCWy6EGI
