The Ex-President Says Herschel Walker Is Going to Run
Recently, we noted that Herschel Walker posted a vague tweet in which he wrote, “Georgia on my mind,” including a video in which he said, “I’m getting ready. And we can run with the big dogs.” Obscure, for sure. Walker hasn’t said much else about a run. In an interview today, the ex-President, Donald Trump, said that Walker, a Georgia native and current Texas resident, is going to run for U.S. Senate.
“He told me he’s going to, and I think he will,” Trump said on the “Clay Travis & Buck Sexton Show” while discussing Walker running for a Georgia Senate seat.
“I had dinner with him a week ago. He’s a great guy. He’s a patriot. He’s a very loyal person,” Trump added.
At some point, Walker needs to either announce that he’s going to run and move back to Georgia, or pass on the race. (You know, moving back before announcing is probably a really good idea.)

There is a residency requirement in Ga to run for Senate. I believe you have to live here a year before qualifying.
The Constitution sets the residency requirement. He would have to live in the state at the time of the election. (Article I, Section 3, Clause 3: “No Person shall be a Senator who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty Years, and been nine Years a Citizen of the United States, and who shall not, when elected, be an Inhabitant of that State for which he shall be chosen.”)
