Herschel Walker Concedes After Georgia Senate to Raphael Warnock

Republican Senate candidate Herschel Walker has conceded to Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock after being defeated in Georgia's Senate runoff election on Tuesday.

Walker gave his concession speech late Tuesday as polls showed he was unexpected to defeat the incumbent senator.

"I want to thank all of you as well, because we've had a tough journey, have we not? But one of the things I said when they called the race, I said the numbers doesn't look like they're going to add up," Walker said.

"But one of the things I want to tell you is you never stop dreaming. I don't want any of you to stop dreaming. I don't want any you to stop believing in America. I want you to believe in America and continue to believe in the Constitution and believe in our elected officials. Most of all, continue to pray for them," he added.

In an op-ed for Fox News, Liz Peek argued that Walker's loss was the end of Trump's 2024. She called for the former president to step away from politics to give another GOP leader an opportunity to win.

"Having suffered the rare humiliation of failing to win a second term in the Oval Office, and having cost his party a majority in the senate – three times – it is time for Donald Trump to step away from politics. It is the right thing to do for his party, for the country, and for himself," she wrote.

"Mr. Trump will not win another election. His most glaring political strength today is his ability to energize Democrats, causing not only historic turnout but attracting gushers of campaign cash – for the opposition," Peek added.

Walker's loss adds to a growing number of problems facing the former president as he launches his 2024 White House bid.

Trump has also recently seen many of his previous Republican supporters distance themselves from him after his controversial comments about "terminating" the Constitution.

"Let me just say, anyone seeking the presidency who thinks that the Constitution could somehow be suspended or not followed, it seems to me would have a very hard time being sworn in as President of the United States," Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said.
