NEW YORK (AP) – A dramatic family fight has clouded the GOP’s hopes in Georgia’s high-stakes Senate contest.

Republican Senate candidate Herschel Walker is drawing criticism from his own son as Walker denies a report that he paid for a girlfriend’s abortion.

But as the midterm campaign speeds into its final full month, leading Republicans believe the Senate majority remains firmly within their reach.

Democratic strategists privately concede that their party’s own shortcomings may not be outweighed by the GOP’s mounting challenges.

Democrats have no margin for error as they confront the weight of history, widespread economic concerns and President Joe Biden’s weak standing.
