- Herschel Walker’s success in the Georgia Senate runoff could hinge on the support of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), rather than former President Donald Trump, according to some Republicans.
- Trump recruited his friend Walker to run for the Senate, but the former president has a spotty relationship with Georgia Republicans and statewide officeholders.
- Ralph Reed, president of Faith and Freedom Coalition, believes that while Trump could be helpful with driving turnout, DeSantis, or Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin (R), could be more beneficial.
- “I think that Youngkin or DeSantis is a better fit for soft Republicans or independents in the suburbs that we need to turn out,” Ralph Reed, president of Faith and Freedom Coalition, told CNN.
