Atlanta businessman and USAF Academy grad and veteran Kelvin King is running in next year’s GOP primary to get the chance to take on vulnerable far left Democrat Senator Raphael Warnock in the general election. And King has a shot.
Though Herschel Walker is also mulling the race, King, as a successful self made man and military veteran, would be just the right candidate to take on Warnock. Yes, Walker brings celebrity to the race. But King brings something much better, an actual record of private sector business success and military service.

Start receiving the latest news from American patriot and former Navy SEAL Carl Higbie.
FNC: “Last week Kelvin King, the owner of an Atlanta-area construction company, became the first Republican candidate to launch a 2022 challenge against Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock, whom the GOP sees as one of the most vulnerable Senate Democrats up for reelection next year. King, who was born to a teenage mother and raised in a single-parent home, graduated from the United States Air Force Academy, where he was an all-conference football player. He served five years in the Air Force as a contracting officer, rising to the rank of captain. After leaving the military, he became the general manager of an international construction firm before starting his own company, which has twice been praised for its growth by the Atlanta Business Chronicle…King, a military veteran and one of the most prominent Black supporters in Georgia last year of then-President Trump’s reelection campaign, is emphasizing his fight against so-called ‘cancel culture’ during the initial days of his Senate bid.”
That is an impressive record. Given his rise from challenging circumstances to success, this guy knows how to work hard and fight. Those are qualities Republicans are in dire need of.
“We have to decide right now if we’re going to be knocked down or knocked out,” the GOP Senate candidate in Georgia told press. “Personally, I’m ready to take back the state and fight for our future and the future of our country…I was born and raised here in Georgia….I’m a product of the American dream. That’s what we’re looking for right now. I’m a great representation of that and I want to make sure that future generations have that same opportunity,” he emphasized. “I believe that this message will resonate with the people of Georgia.”
About Warnock? “His policy positions, they’re very left-leaning and he just doesn’t have our values. In Georgia we value life, we value the Second Amendment. And there’s nothing that comes out of Sen. Warnock that speaks towards that….he’s not really in lockstep with Georgia.”
“I was supporter of President Trump and we have reached to people around the president and we do hope to earn his support going forward,” King said. He added that he’s “a fan” of Georgia’s election reform, which “will restore voter integrity in the state, and I think that that bill will serve its purpose and will re-encourage people to go out and vote.” We need this man in the Senate.
