After much speculation and urging from former President Donald Trump, Herschel Walker entered the race for the U.S. Senate. Walker becomes the favorite in the Republican field thanks his fame from playing football at the University of Georgia. But much is not known about his opinions on the issues and how his history of mental illness, including violent episodes he’s publicly addressed, will play in a campaign.
