I think Herschel Walker realized mid-election that he wasn't comfortable with his situation. The Republican party was having difficulty getting him to campaign. The run off was like dragging dead wood for the party. Perhaps the people around him helped him make a moral choice to just go through the motions.

It's tragic that he was being used because he was a famous black person. His heart wasn't in winning.

I think both parties are exploitative to win. It's about power and control not equity.
