Brian Kemp was one of the most flagrantly toxic bigots to come out of the woodwork during the 2018 midterm elections when he announced his run for governor of Georgia and embraced every dog whistle and conspiracy theory that Donald Trump normalized, giving him a narrow win over Stacey Abrams, but probably alienating a lot of suburban voters in doing so. No one would have guessed that just two years later, he would be among a list of Trump’s most despised politicians for his failure to throw out votes in the state on Donald Trump’s behalf – something that has led to a number of death threats against Kemp, Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and state election officials.
To give an idea of how unpopular Kemp is right now, David Perdue was recently asked about the current feud between him and Trump in a Fox and Friends interview, and he picked the side of Donald Trump, even as the latter makes baseless conspiracy theories about how Kemp is plotting against him with China.
Somehow, the approval of a defeated presidential candidate means more than the support of people who work for Perdue’s state and its current administration – likely because Perdue is in desperate need of the votes from those people who only come out when Trump is on the ballot. This alone proves that Perdue shouldn’t be rewarded by voters with another term in the Senate – much less be seated there in the first place. Perdue must be replaced on January 5 with Jon Ossoff and we need everyone who turned out in November for Joe Biden to get him seated in the Senate.
