Georgia Runoff: Will a Warnock Victory be Trump’s Waterloo?

If Raphael Warnock wins today’s Senate runoff in Georgia, Senate Democrats will gain a 51-49 majority – providing them with some insurance if Arizona voters boot out Kyrsten Sinema in 2024, while at the same time reducing the power of the West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin to control the Democrat’s agenda.

In other words: a win-win.

But it could prove an even bigger Democratic win. That’s because the biggest loser in a Warnock victory won’t be his Republican rival, Herschel Walker.

It will be Donald Trump.

Walker’s entire candidacy was a Trump creation – not unlike Trump University, Trump Airline, Trump Vodka and Trump Steaks.

And like those businesses, the Walker candidacy appears to have sunk under a miasma of ineptitude, lies and embarrassing allegations – in this case, of domestic abuse, semi-secret children and payments for abortions for multiple women.

Trump encouraged Walker to run. Before Walker announced his campaign, Trump loudly hinted that the former NFL star was considering entering the race. Earlier this year, Trump went to Georgia to stump for him.

But after the 2022 midterms, when so many Trump-endorsed candidates flamed out, Walker’s campaign asked Trump to please stay away. No more endorsements, rallies, stumps or joint appearances.

Grudgingly, Trump complied. But his corpulent shadow has continued to dog Walker’s slipshod campaign.

In many respects, Georgia is becoming Trump’s Waterloo.
