Former NFL football player Herschel Walker has hinted his campaign for Georgia’s Senate race. Walker made a cryptic statement in a Twitter video on Thursday, which led curious minds to speculate whether he would be taking on Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-Va.) in the upcoming 2022 midterms.
The former running back, a Georgia native, has already gained favoritism as a possible Republican nominee. In the video, Herschel teased at his potential campaign by revving his engine and showing off his Georgia license plate.

“What you hear there is hulk,” he explained “…I’m getting ready and we can run with the big dogs.”
President Trump, who has known Walker for several decades, has already shown immense support for the former NFL player and said he’d be “unstoppable” if he chose to run.
