The 2022 midterms saw many blowout victories for the Republican party, but unexpectedly many races were close calls, the Georgia Senate election even going to a runoff that was called Tuesday.

College football legend and Trump endorsed Georgia Republican Senate candidate Herschel Walker suffered defeat, as his Democrat challenger and incumbent Senator Raphael Warnock secured a victory for the left. 

Walker’s son, Christian Walker, took to Twitter after the race was called, criticizing his father’s place in the race in the first place and criticizing the Republican party for participating in “identity politics.”

The Truth: Trump called my dad for months DEMANDING that he run. Everyone with a brain begged him: “PLEASE DON’T DO THIS. This is too dirty, you have an insane past… PLEASE DONT DO THIS. We got the middle finger. He ran,” the tweet began.

“Republicans, we say we don’t play “identity politics” and then you ran this man mainly because he was the same skin color as his opponent with no background other than football. A boring old Republican could have won.”

Many criticized the way the GOP supported Walker’s campaign in Georgia as much of his support came from inside the state and not the Republican National Committee.

Erick Erickson said, “When @GOPChairwoman claims only the RNC worked in Georgia remember @BrianKempGA kept his ground operation going. @LeaderMcConnell poured $11 million into the state. The RNC didn’t do as much, but McDaniel will want credit to save her job. It’d have been a blowout but for Kemp.”

Republican commentator Scott Jennings said “Georgia may be remembered as the state that broke Trump once and for all.”

The GOP had no chance of taking the majority in the Senate with this race, but it’s results further showed that projections of a Republican “red wave” in this years midterms were heavily inflated.
