Herschel Walker was a scandal-ridden candidate who was worse than what the public had seen and rejected in Georgia.
NBC News She reported that consultants hired by the Walker campaign found 500 pages of potential scandal after only two weeks of searching:
In just two weeks, the company has amassed a 500-page dossier filled with potential business scandals, controversial quotes from Walker and allegations of domestic violence and strange behaviour, according to four sources who have seen Oppo’s book.
Chambers said to Walker, according to a source who heard him discuss the book with Walker at a meeting in July in the dining room of a Republican donor who lived in Buckhead, Atlanta.

Naturally, any serious campaign would do research to see what their candidate’s past could have used against the campaign, but 500 pages of potential scandal is unheard of.
If this is what his people have found in just a couple of weeks, imagine what has not been found, and then think of what would have happened if this man had somehow been elected to the Senate.
Walker was so unable to stay on the letter that the campaign sent him for interviews on Fox News with a therapist like Lindsey Graham or Ted Cruz to make sure he wasn’t allowed to talk too much and that someone remembered asking for money.
Herschel Walker as a candidate was a complete disaster. The Republican Party knew this and is still trying to get him elected to the Senate.
America dodged a bullet when Georgia voters decided to re-elect Raphael Warnock and return Herschel Walker to Texas.
