    Yes indeed,nothing new there. Democrats also had some. Al Franken comes to mind.
    Celebrities are just as capable as anyone else, and also have the additional benefit of name recognition.
    but the troubling part is not that Walker is a celebrity.

    Betting markets heavily favor Warnock over Walker in Georgia runoff

    Online betting markets are heavily favoring incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock (D) over Republican Herschel Walker in Georgia’s Senate runoff with two days until the election.

    The Democrat’s chances of winning the runoff were at 89.5 percent to Walker’s 10.5 percent as of Sunday afternoon, according to the tracker Election Betting Odds, which culls odds from other popular betting markets.

    The site, run by conservatives John Stossel and Maxim Lott, notes Warnock’s lead has climbed 1.4 percent in the last day.

    PredictIt and Polymarket both show Warnock at 89 percent. Smarkets, another betting market used by Election Betting Odds, puts Warnock’s odds even higher — at 92.6 percent to Walker’s 8.3 percent.

    True. The troubling part is the high percentage of Georgia's voters as indicated in polls that would vote for the ignorant fool. Then again, not that surprising given Trump elected President in 2016.

    Walker "one of the worst candidates" in GOP history: Georgia Lt. Gov.

    Herschel Walker, a Republican running for a U.S. Senate seat in Georgia, will "probably go down as one of the worst candidates in our party's history," Georgia Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan (R) said in an interview with CBS News.

    Why it matters: The comments come mere days before the Dec. 6 Georgia Senate runoff election between Walker and incumbent Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock.

    What he said: Duncan told CBS he supports conservative politics, and that he has "got kids probably that could articulate the conservative platform better than some of the candidates that Donald Trump and his group supported all across the country."

    "This wasn't the right brand for Republicanism," he added, "and I think Herschel Walker will probably go down as one of the worst candidates in our party's history."

    Context: Walker has been endorsed by former President Trump and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. But the campaign has been ensnarled in controversy with allegations of domestic violence and that he paid for abortions for two women.

    Arizona officials certified the state’s vote canvass on Monday, officially declaring winners in the high-profile gubernatorial and Senate races, among other contests, as GOP figures vow to fight the election results in court.

    The once low-profile certification process turned into a fierce battle between election officials, Republican candidates and some county boards as the GOP seized on printer malfunctions in the state’s most populous county, in part leading Arizona to become an epicenter for voter disenfranchisement allegations.

    Election officials have acknowledged mishaps but insist no voter was disenfranchised. Some GOP figures and their supporters claimed officials were lying, unsuccessfully calling on county boards to not certify their canvasses in recent days before turning their ire to Monday’s state-level certification.

    But Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs (D), who is now governor-elect, Gov. Doug Ducey (R), state Attorney General Mark Brnovich (R) and Arizona Supreme Court Chief Justice Robert Brutinel still met to canvass last month’s election on Monday, a timeline mandated by state law.

    “Arizona had a successful election,” Hobbs said. “But too often throughout the process, powerful voices proliferated misinformation that threatened to disenfranchise voters. Democracy prevailed, but it’s not out of the woods. 2024 will bring a host of challenges from the election denial community that we must prepare for.”

    The certification paves the way for automatic recounts to begin in three close races — attorney general, state superintendent and a state House seat near Phoenix — and officials signed certificates of election for the other contests.

    Hobbs’s team will now go before a state judge, who is poised to officially order the three recounts.

    But Monday’s meeting is also likely to spark multiple GOP-led lawsuits, as gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake (R), who lost to Hobbs, and attorney general candidate Abe Hamadeh (R), who trails his Democratic rival by the slimmest of margins ahead of the automatic recount, promise to take legal action.

    So lots of women are voting (good), but lots of white republicans vote on election day (bad).

    Could still go either way.

    The demographic breakdown for the early turnout shows Black Georgians keeping pace with white voters, 31.9-55.1%, about equal to their overall shares of the population, and the most active age groups have been between 55-75 years old. Women have cast more ballots than men, 56-43.8%.
    Bullock said that if the percentage of Black voters who turned out in the runoff remains above 30% through Election Day, that would be "pretty good" for Democrats.
    "Warnock is gonna get 90% of that vote, maybe more," he said. "The electorate that's going to show up on Election Day is gonna be a much whiter electorate and a more Republican electorate."

    3 takeaways from the big early voting numbers in Georgia’s Senate runoff


    • A record number of voters cast their ballots in the first few days
    • Turnout has been higher in Democratic strongholds, and among Black voters
    • There is still a lot of voting left — but it is tough to gauge how much


    More than 1 million people have voted early in the Georgia runoff between Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock and Republican challenger Herschel Walker — a sign of strong turnout ahead of Tuesday’s contest.

    Nothing about early vote numbers guarantees an election outcome, with millions more eligible to vote in-person on Tuesday. And there are still votes being cast today, the last day of early in-person voting, while absentee ballots can also be returned through Election Day. But there are several key themes that have emerged as Georgians trudged back to the polls just weeks after an intense midterm campaign ended everywhere else in the country.

    Spurred by a condensed runoff period, early voting totals have set records, and it has been especially strong in heavily Black parts of the state and Democratic strongholds. The high turnout suggests that Election Day voting will once again be busy in the state, though it’s hard to estimate exactly where turnout will end up Tuesday night.

    It is the second consecutive runoff for Warnock, who won his seat in a January 2021 special election over then-Sen. Kelly Loeffler. That victory, coupled with Sen. Jon Ossoff’s win on the same day, gave Democrats control of the Senate for the past two years.

    Of course it's easy for white folk to vote which doesn't help.

    Georgia elections official Gabriel Sterling said in an interview on CNN that he believes nearly 3.3 million people cast votes in the Senate runoff, which he called a record.
    Sterling, the chief operating officer in Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger's office, said the votes are coming in at a quick pace and might slow down once 2.5 million votes are counted.
    "What I do know is we have record turnout today, record turnout in the early voting, record usage of absentee ballots, so the people of Georgia were very excited to vote," he said, adding that no one was "discouraged from voting."
    "We had more people vote early in the midterm runoff voted in the entire midterm runoff four years ago," he said.
    The turnout in the Senate runoff was nearly 75 to 80% of the entire turnout for the midterm election in November.
