This year, Trump's obsession with his 2020 loss has loomed over Republican primary elections for governor, Senate and secretary of state.
In the general election, Walker would face the Democratic incumbent, Sen. Raphael Warnock, who easily won his Democratic primary on Tuesday.
Tuesday marked the first Georgia election under a new voting law adopted by the Republican-backed state legislature in response to Trump’s grievances.
