More GOP Primary Chaos as Deal Backs Black, Walker Builds a Campaign Team, & Loeffler Still Weighs A Run

July 12, 2021

Trump’s hand-picked candidate Herschel Walker is preparing his U.S. Senate campaign and failed politician Kelly Loeffler is mulling another run, but that hasn’t stopped Georgia Republicans from weighing in against the two looming frontrunners in this chaotic GOP primary. 

Despite the fact that Walker is expected to make his Senate run official in the near future, Nathan Deal, the former two-term Governor of Georgia, endorsed Gary Black. As the AJC notes, “most of the state’s Republican establishment has stayed on the sidelines as Herschel Walker inches toward running for the seat with Donald Trump’s blessing.” 

Meanwhile, failed politician Kelly Loeffler continues to mull another run and the GOP field isn’t deferring to Walker – promising the messy, expensive primary Republicans hoped to avoid. Even with Walker appearing to get closer to entering the race, Kelly Loeffler isn’t ruling out another run, and the handful of lesser-known GOP hopefuls in the race made it clear they plan to stay in – promising Republicans’ chaotic primary heads further off the rails in the months ahead.
