Republicans are standing by embattled Herschel Walker in his race for a US Senate seat in must-win Georgia as he emphatically denies a Daily Beast report that he once paid for a girlfriend’s abortion 13 years ago.

Abortion has emerged as among the top issues that could decide control of the Senate, and Walker is a fierce advocate for a nationwide abortion ban with no exceptions for rape, incest or the risk to the mother.
