Last night, Donald Trump blew out his birthday candles alongside Herschel Walker — the Texas resident he’s openly encouraged to enter Georgia’s U.S. Senate race — giving Georgia Republicans yet another headache as their GOP primary continues to sputter. The former president’s #1 choice is “still very much considering a run,” but he seems to be in no rush despite private worry from Republicans in Georgia about the prospect of another divisive, messy, and expensive primary.
Here’s what you need to know about the GOP’s Georgia Senate woes:
“Georgia’s Republican primary for U.S. Senate is shaping up to be an absolute mess from start to finish,” said Dan Gottlieb, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “No matter what Donald Trump wishes, he’s blown a cloud of chaos and confusion over the GOP Senate primary that’s sure to cause major headaches for Georgia Republicans.”
