Perdue Says Pence, Trump Will Visit Georgia Again Before Election

Vice President Mike Pence will visit Georgia again ahead of the November election, according to two high-ranking Georgia politicains – Sonny and David Perdue.

The news broke over the weekend when WMAZ reported from the Georgia Republican Party’s 8th District Fish Fry in Macon. The Perdue cousins said Pence is planning another campaign stop.

Junior U.S. Senator David Perdue said it could be as soon as early September when Pence joins Republican candidates on the campaign trail again. He also said President Trump will stump for Kemp at some point as well.

Pence stumped on behalf of President Trump for Republican candidate for Governor and current Secretary of State Brian Kemp. At the time, Kemp was facing Lt. Governor Casey Cagle in the Republican primary runoff. Kemp defeated Cagle by a 70-30 margin, claiming 157 of 159 counties across Georgia. Polling released after the primary runoff in July showed Kemp poised to defeat Cagle, but a Trump and Pence endorsement that came the week before Election Day caused a surge, ultimately yielding a landslide defeat.

Whether or not the support of Trump and Pence will help Kemp among moderates and Independents remains to be seen. In June, some outlets reported a slide in Trump’s approval rating across states but data showed that the slide was less in Georgia than many other states.

Abrams told attendees of the Democratic State Convention over the weekend that the entire race will come down to turnout.

Overall it depends on who you are appealing to with Pence. Evangelicals yes but if you’re writing off a lot of women with him coming to Georgia. Pence creeps a lot of people out.

Don’t forget about the hypocrites, always a big fraction within the GOP. From “Mike Pence’s Moral Case for Removing a President from Office” https://edition.cnn.com/2018/08/06/politics/kfile-mike-pence-moral-columns/index.html . “If you and I fall into bad moral habits, we can harm our families, our employers and our friends. The President of the United States can incinerate the planet. Seriously, the very idea that we ought to have at or less than the same moral demands placed on the Chief Executive that we place on our next door neighbor is ludicrous and dangerous. Throughout our history, we have seen the presidency as the repository of… Read more »

From an op-ed I read this morning: “Pence is regarded by some as a modern version of another Old Testament figure, Daniel, who safeguarded his fellow Jews while functioning as counselor to another pagan ruler, Nebuchadnezzar.” Plus, Pence believes God intends to make him president.

Did you know that Trump was a sinful candidate? Well I never… The Clinton’s were so pure. Darn the Daniel reference was wonderful! And the lion’s den could be any conservative in the country trying to lead his daily life without liberals attacking them. Does anyone consider this blog to be a lion’s den for a poor conservative just trying to make a point? Aaaweee naaawww! How many liberals know who Nebchadnezzar was? Most probably think it is a racial insult. Don’t call me one of dem! Hey, half of Americans cant name a single Supreme Court justice. I wonder… Read more »

Another whatabout that drifts into disconnected stream of consciousness, this one making a babble point about imaginary victimhood..

They’re all going to say they were safeguarding the country after treason is exposed. Count on it.
