  Trump will be told to delay announcement of his 2024 campaign until after the Georgia senate runoff, his campaign advisor said. It's unclear if Trump will follow through. Donald Trump suggested he would announce his campaign on November 15, but the midterm results are causing his advisors to rethink that strategy. Trump had hoped to use the midterms as an indication of his unwavering influence on the party. Former President Donald Trump's campaign advisor Jason Miller said Wednesday that he'll be directing Trump to delay the announcement of his 2024 presidential campaign after the midterms failed to manifest the blowout Republicans hope to receive in Congress.

While Republican candidate Herschel Walker continues to battle against Georgia Senator Raphael Warnock in a hotly contested election to see who will represent Georgia in the U.S. Senate next year, concerns and questions about Walker’s mental acuteness continue to dog him on the campaign trail.

Walker, who survived the initial election to make it this far in spite of abortion scandals, strange statements, and blatant lies, is trying to convince Georgia voters to consider voting for him once more. However, the former Georgia Bulldogs football star continues to make strange statements that call into question whether or not he is capable of handling the rigors of being a United States Senator.

  Herschel Walker's supporters are suggesting Ron DeSantis would be better on Georgia campaign trail than Donald Trump, report says The merits of Trump's presence are being debated, and Georgia Republicans feel that DeSantis' support would be a big boost, CNN reported.So far, Americans have dealt devastating blows to his brand by rejecting key candidates in closely-contested races. Rather than a so-called "red wave," results were still unclear on Wednesday. Republicans are likely to win control of the House but the Senate is still in play for both parties.

Emmy Award-winning journalist Jemele Hill, who previously worked for ESPN and now writes for The Atlantic, has been outspoken about her concerns over Walker. In October, she wrote a scathing piece about his campaign and what it meant to Republicans that this was their preferred candidate.

“Walker’s disturbing history in no way reflects on other Black men. But I can’t help sensing some condescension in Republicans’ elevation of such a buffoonish candidate. Does Walker embody what they think Black men really are? Do they think that Black voters in Georgia are so gullible and hungry for representation that they would willingly overlook Walker’s obvious incompetence?”

During a stop on her book tour, Hill spoke with Keisha Lance Bottoms, the former Mayor of Atlanta, who asked the writer what questions she would ask Walker.

“I would actually want to ask him what are the three branches of government to see if he knew them,” joked Hill. “Cause there’s no way he knows it. I would give him the most basic civics question possible, and you just let the entertainment go from there.”
