Kemp releases new campaign ad “Ahead”

Republican gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp has released his first television advertisement of the general election – an ad the campaign titled “Ahead.”

The commercial touches on education, job creation, local control, and what Kemp refers to as “legal behavior.”

The Kemp campaign said in a press release Friday that the ad “highlights Kemp’s bold vision for our state’s future and his commitment to continued job growth and early learning initiatives. Kemp’s plan to put hardworking Georgians first will ensure a stronger, safer, and more prosperous future for everyone.”

You can watch the ad below:

Read the full script here:

“I’m Brian Kemp and I believe in Georgia. I believe our future is about growing jobs – not government. Investing in early, locally controlled education – not one size fits all.

“I believe in helping our most vulnerable but requiring work from those who can. And as always, rewarding legal – not illegal – behavior.

“I’m Brian Kemp. I believe Georgia’s best days are ahead and I’d be honored to have your vote.”

A commercial targeting Democrat Stacey Abrams was released earlier this month, but was paid for by the Republican Governor’s Association.

Resign your SoS job.
Handel did it. Cleland did it.
It’s the right thing to do. (Cox and Massey didn’t but they should have also.)
Maybe we could overlook if our elections were beyond reproach, but that has not been the case under Kemp’s watch. Too much scandal, too many questions, too obvious partisanship.

You know, it seems like he is trying to move past Hillbilly Brian with this ad but I think the damage has already been done. You see Kemp and you automatically think Dueling Banjos should be playing in the background.

Lol! Yall.never.stop! If it’s not Trump’s Deplorables, it’s Kemp’s Hillbillies! One has already kicked y’alls ass and the other is fixin’ to. What does it feel like to keep getting beat bt people you deem inferior? And be honest…

I don’t see it as a matter of intelligence, but as priorities, and really, how we view our relationships to those we live amongst.
It does look like Kemp is trying to focus on different priorities, though- ones more appealing to suburbanites, and laying out a more moderated message on immigration (just so he won’t lose those who value deportation over jobs).
If he makes a commitment to secure universal pre-K education, I won’t even call him a socialist for it.

The ‘priority’ is betting that people will either forget his ridiculous primary campaign or weren’t paying attention. Which is probably a good bet.
.
But the cynicism is pretty pathetic. After trying to be the most outrageous primary candidate, now all the sudden he’s ‘Mr. Moderate’. But I think multiple commenters here predicted this , because we already know who he is.

Well, I never said the hillbilly schtick wouldn’t be embraced by a lot of Georgians just that the Hillbilly schtick has clung to him.

You don’t think the Trump endorsement is going to hurt him? It is not going to take a whole lot at this point to lessen Kemp’s chances. So far the race has been polling pretty close.

Yes, I’m sure an unindicted co conspirator campaigning for him is really going to help. For all your complaints about people looking down on you, you apparently think that people in Georgia are too stupid to realize what is going on with Trump, Mueller etc.

Of course Georgians know what’s going on: a witch hunt!

Again, you are saying that people in Georgia are brainwashed idiots who don’t know facts from fiction. Today it was announced his CEO was granted immunity. His long time associates are turning on Trump. It would seem that if the people who have known him for decades are turning on him, the rest of the GOP would get a clue.

Noway2016

Just to be clear. Georgians don’t care about NY issues with regard to Trump. They love him! Socialist Stacey loses. Bad.

What are we- about 75 days out now?
Kemp’s fortune may pivot a lot on what happens in Trumpland in those days. But for Kemp to lose, there would have to be a massive shocker, with no time to recover.

So shorter Noway: Yesterday Trump was TGM. Today nobody cares that he’s been accused of running a criminal enterprise because said enterprise is out of NY. So if an indictment comes out of NY state for Trump it is not going to matter because it comes out of NY is apparently your thinking. Last week Trump was in the white house. Today he resides in NY and never was president. Okay. Totally illogical.

What I never got was why he was a great “Man”. If you wanted to call him a great “Pres.”, I’d say well at least you can argue about the greatness of his policies or politics. But to say he’s a great Man means you have to include all of his moral choices, his personal choices, his business choices. And just thinking about his moral choices shows he is unfaithful, deceitful, gluttonous, etc. I would wager, Noway, that your moral and professional choices stand well above his. So why not recognize that, and just call him a great politician or… Read more »

So when will the Kemp ad featuring Kemp’s pick up truck, him holding a shotgun, and Kemp’s lone Latino elected official supporter Loganville Councilman Rey Martinez be released?

Andrew, if someone wanted a pertinent post they wouldn’t be reading your daily slimefest! “Little bitch” once again. Just like yesterday. I told you to try google and come up with some new cusswords. Maybe try “insults” this time. Whatever you are using is drawing laughs instead of any hurt feelings! Again, if yourkids act like little petulant dbags like you , please discipline them. It is apparent that you didn’t get enough ass beatings in your childhood or wouldn’t have turned into the miserable, hateful snowflake that you are. I think I am going to call the teacher and… Read more »

I apologize if I only mentioned Andrew as a petulant little name calling dbag! I truly get Matt and Andrew mixed up.

Whatever you are using is drawing laughs instead of any hurt feelings! Really, I don’t want any of the snowflakes thrown off the blog. I truly enjoy your posts better than almost all of them. Maybe yours and NOWAY’s, but for different reasons of course! I enjoy opening up the blog… Read more »

You know after thinking about it, I think Matt and BJ are one in the same. Notice how BJ ran off after a day and a half? After Drew’s scolding. Matt has always been POed under the surface. Big time resentments and hate. BJ’s couple of postings were that outraged, too. Just a theory. BJ is/was definately not a new, unique visitor here.

Something to keep in mind about Kemp is that he’s never won statewide office as a non-incumbent.

But he has won statewide office twice. Stacey’s never won statewide anything. She has no real statewide name ID. Ruh-roh…

I was going to say that maybe Stacey hasn’t won too many races… I don’t have anything against her. I just find it hard to believe that she will win by wanting to take away guns and sandblast Stone Mountain. Maybe tear down a few statues. Uh, what the hell is that going to do to help anything? Play the race card maybe? Georgia and the entire country needs jobs and economic growth. Not grandstanding BS. And that is all the libs have proposed for a decade. What is the economic message from Abrams? What about schools? What is the… Read more »

They have attempted to campaign on “economic growth” and/or “tax cuts” in a number of special elections and it did not work. So they’re left with blaming someone else for everything mostly brown people.

Dave, let me help you here. Reversing the socialist agenda IS revving up growth. Let’s try this. Lower taxes, lower regulations, a tax code that encourages hard work, lower cost energy and becoming the largest energy producer on earth, better trade deals, a border that is secure. Yes that is the conservative agenda. It is just he opposite of the socialist agenda isn’t it? I am sorry that you don’t see that as a massive pro growth agenda. It is. It really is not that hard to see if you try. Ask someone that wants a job. Has a job.… Read more »
