MACON, Ga. -- Georgia Republican gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp celebrated an endorsement from the state's "Top Dawg" Friday afternoon.
Herschel Walker is a multi-talented athlete, but is well-known for having played football at the University of Georgia before heading to the NFL.
"I am proud to stand with Brian Kemp as our next Governor," said Walker. "He is the clear choice for a stronger, safer and a more prosperous future. Please join me in supporting Brian Kemp as the next 'Head Coach' for the great state of Georgia!"
"I am honored to earn the strong support of football legend, Herschel Walker, in this historic election that will determine Georgia's future," said Brian Kemp. "With the support of the Dawg Nation and leaders like Herschel and Coach Dooley, we can win at the ballot box and put hardworking Georgians first. Keep Choppin’ and Go Dawgs!"
