Former star running back turned political candidate Herschel Walker got some tough campaign news over the weekend.
Walker, a Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, is in a runoff with his opposition, Raphael Warnock.
According to a new report, Walker is facing an uphill battle in the campaign funds department.
Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock’s campaign has almost three times as much cash on hand as Republican candidate Herschel Walker’s heading into the final stretch of Georgia’s runoff Senate election, according to new Federal Election Commission filings.
Warnock, who is trying to defend his seat in a tight race, had just over $29 million on hand as of Nov. 16. Walker, a former NFL player and favorite of ex-President Donald Trump, had over $9.8 million on hand heading into the final weeks of the election.
Now that's a pretty big deficit to be facing heading into the run-off election.
Walker and Warnock both failed to get 50 percent in the polls on Election Day.
