Former NFL running back turned political candidate Herschel Walker appeared to make an embarrassing mistake during an interview this week.
Walker, arguably one of the best player in Georgia football history, is running for office within the state.
The previous NFL running back said in an interview this week that there are 52 states in America. In fact, there are only 50.
Walker had a message for Stacy Abrams during an interview with Clay Travis and Buck Sexton Show.
“In case you don’t imagine within the country, leave and go some place else,” he said. “If it’s the worst state, why are you here? Why don’t you permit ― go to a different? There’s, what, 51 more other states which you could go to?”
A spokeswoman for Walker’s campaign responded to the Huffington Post.
“Herschel misspoke ― he obviously knows there are 50 states,” spokeswoman Mallory Blount told HuffPost.
This was not Walker’s first tough moment during his campaign.
Despite some embarrassing moments throughout his campaign, Walker still has loads of support in Georgia.
