Herschel Walker and Raphael Warnock are fighting for a Senate seat in Georgia's runoff on Tuesday.

Despite the tight race, Walker, the Republican nominee, has been keeping a light schedule.

Georgia Republicans are losing faith in the Senate nominee Herschel Walker ahead of Tuesday's runoff election, Politico reported.

Some Georgia Republicans have said privately that the chances of Walker, who was endorsed by former President Donald Trump, winning are slim, Politico reported.

The Georgia Republican Party also sent out an email describing Walker's Tuesday-evening gathering as an "election night party," rather than a "victory celebration," the outlet added.

While Walker kept a light schedule over the weekend, Warnock attended six events in various cities, Politico reported.

Republicans have won the House, albeit narrowly, and Democrats will retain control of the Senate, no matter what happens in Georgia. »
