Trump Holding ‘Tele-Rally’ For Walker Ahead Of GA Runoff

  • Donald Trump plans to hold a rally via telephone for Herschel Walker ahead of Georgia’s US Senate run-off on Tuesday, opting not to campaign in-person and potentially draw more blame for hurting the GOP’s midterm election efforts.
  • Trump is doing the so-called tele-rally for Walker on Monday evening, according to a person familiar with the matter. The former president has held such calls on the eve of other elections to encourage turnout and support for his endorsed candidates. Walker supporters and others will be able to dial in for a conference call to hear from Trump.
  • Walker is locked in a close runoff race with Democratic Senator Raphael Warnock that will either bolster the slim Democratic majority in the upper chamber, allowing for a one-seat edge on committees and other advantages over Republicans, or keep it at the 50-50 tie it’s been since President Joe Biden took office.
