Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, who won re-election this month, campaigned for the first time with fellow Republican Hershel Walker, in a tight runoff race for US Senate. 

Kemp’s support is considered crucial in Walker’s match-up against incumbent Senator Raphael Warnock. The governor won 200,000 more votes in the Nov. 8 midterm election than Walker, a former football player and Olympic athlete whose campaign has been damaged by charges of violence against his former wife and claims that he has paid for abortions though he says he opposes the procedures.
