Ye, the embattled rapper formerly known as Kanye West, made a final push to support Republican candidate Herschel Walker in Tuesday’s Georgia Senate runoff election.

Walker is facing off against Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA). Both men have been campaigning heavily throughout the state.

“Vote.gop or TeamHerschel.com/VOTE (which leads to ga gov site),” Ye captioned an Instagram post featuring a black-and-white photo of Walker.

Last week, Ye endorsed Walker in a controversial appearance on Alex Jones’s Infowars show. According to him, Walker “changed his life for Christ.” “He might have had abortions, but he doesn’t believe in abortions,” Ye said.

Donning a ski mask, Ye spent the rest of the nearly three-hour appearance praising Adolf Hitler and the Nazis and spouting conspiracy theories about Jewish people.

“Well, I see good things about Hitler, also,” he said, which appeared to shock even Jones. “Every human being has something of value that they brought to the table, especially Hitler.”

Soon after, Ye’s Twitter account was suspended for a tweet appearing to be a Jewish star with a Nazi swastika inside it. “YE24 LOVE EVERYONE #LOVESPEECH” he had written.

New Twitter owner and billionaire Elon Musk told users that Ye “violated our rule against incitement to violence. Account will be suspended.”

The Georgia runoff will not determine the Senate majority because the Democratic Party has already acquired 50 seats, along with Vice President Kamala Harris’s tiebreaking vote. However, the result of the election will determine whether the Democratic Party enjoys a larger majority, allowing for less resistance getting legislation through.
