Republican Georgia Senate hopeful Herschel Walker had a hard time getting the rights words out during a Tuesday night appearance on Hannity. 

‘First of all, this election is more than Herschel Walker. This erection is about the people,’ said Walker. 

He was flanked by Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham and Ted Cruz, who were in Georgia campaigning for him ahead of the December 6 run-off election, and didn’t appear to stiffen up despite the gaffe.

Walker’s unfortunate phrasing comes as he’s locked in a tight race against incumbent Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock for the Peach State’s Senate seat. 

Neither candidate was able to get the mandatory 50 percent plus one vote to win the election outright, so now Georgia voters have to head to the polls again to make their choice. 

The latest polling shows Warnock 4 points ahead, but that’s within the survey’s plus or minus 4.4 percent margin of error. 

Run-offs are also difficult to poll, as it’s harder to determine which voters will be motivated to show.

Warnock and Georgia’s other Democratic Sen. Jon Ossoff won their run-off races in 2021, which flipped control of the Senate to the Democrats. 

The Democrats will retain control of the U.S. Senate next year – but if Warnock wins they’ll have a 51st vote, which gives them an outright majority instead of the 50-50 Senate split, with Vice President Kamala Harris acting as the tie-breaker vote. 

Walker’s run has been plagued by allegations that he pressured ex-girlfriends to have abortions – despite telling voters he’s ‘pro-life’ – and was abusive toward his family.

Walker has pushed back saying he’s long been upfront about his mental health challenges.

He’s denied claims he pushed women he was dating to have abortions. 

Some of his conduct as a candidate has also raised eyebrows.

He brought an honorary police badge to his debate with Warnock. 

Walker also recently claimed that he wanted to be a ‘werewolf’ during an appearance on the campaign trail. 

Early on, former President Donald Trump had pushed Walker to run and at his presidential announcement last week pushed Georgians to rally behind him. 

Warnock, on the other hand, will again receive help on the campaign trail from former President Barack Obama – who will rally alongside him on December 1. 

It’s unclear if President Joe Biden or Vice President Kamala Harris will travel to Georgia ahead of the election, which comes in less than two weeks.
