Sen. Raphael Warnock won the Georgia Runoff, giving Democrats a 51-seat majority.
The Donald Trump-backed Herschel Walker, the former football star who faced multiple scandals, had no platform to speak of, and couldn’t talk in complete sentences appeared shocked that he lost.
And now emboldened Republicans are blaming Trump.
‘There was no Herschel candidacy until Trump opened his mouth,’ ex-Georgia GOP Chair John Watson said.
There’s now ‘a whole lot of pissed off Georgia Republicans,’ he added.
‘Georgia may be remembered as the state that broke Trump once and for all,’ former George W. Bush aide Scott Jennings wrote on Twitter Tuesday night.
Former Trump administration official John Bolton echoed similar sentiments on Wednesday morning: ‘The outcome in Georgia is due primarily to Trump, who cast a long shadow over this race.’
‘His meddling and insistence that the 2020 election was stolen will deliver more losses. Trump remains a huge liability and the Democrat’s best asset. It’s time to disavow him and move on,’ Bolton said.
