Obama to campaign for Warnock in Georgia

The former president is scheduled to arrive in Georgia on Dec. 1, the second-to-last day of early in-person voting in the state’s U.S. Senate runoff election. Barack Obama is the only significant national Democratic figure slated to campaign in person for incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock. Obama has decried Warnock’s Republican opponent, Herschel Walker, as drastically unprepared for the Senate.

What’s going on with Walker’s side? Over the weekend, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp campaigned with Walker after avoiding him for months. Former President Donald Trump also endorsed Walker, a retired professional football player, but has yet to campaign for him. Walker has welcomed a list of high-profile Republican politicians such as Sens. Rick Scott of Florida and Lindsay Graham of South Carolina.
