Herschel Walker, the Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate in Georgia, went on an unexpected tangent at a rally on Wednesday and declared he wanted to be a werewolf, not a vampire.
In a rambling speech, Walker suddenly cited a movie he watched on TV to make a vague point about having faith in the country and elected officials.
The former college football player turned politician with the endorsement of former president Donald Trump told voters he watched a movie whose title he remembered as “Fright Night, Freak Night, or some type of night.”

He proceeded to analyze plot details and characteristics of vampires and werewolves.
“I don’t know if you know, but vampires are some cool people, are they not?” Walker said. “But let me tell you something that I found out: a werewolf can kill a vampire. Did you know that? I never knew that. So, I don’t want to be a vampire anymore. I want to be a werewolf.”
After a long rant detailing how the hero in the movie killed the vampire, Walker tried to connect the dots between the story he had just told and his political speech by saying how the hero failed in killing the vampire because he didn’t have faith.
“And that’s the way it is in our life,” Walker said. “It doesn’t work unless you got faith. We got to have faith in our fellow brother, we got to have faith in this country.”
The confusing anecdote went viral and adds to other bizarre moments during his campaign. Recently, during the only debate against Sen. Raphael Warnock, his Democrat opponent, Walker flashed an honorary badge claiming he worked with law enforcement, which was not confirmed by local authorities.
Walker faces Warnock in a runoff on December 6 because none of the candidates received more than 50% of the votes.
