As Stacey Abrams has thrown the proverbial hat back in the ring as a Democratic candidate for Governor, the Republican Governors Association has gone on the attack:
“Stacey Abrams is once again using Georgia to boost her own star while she plots a path toward her real career goal: President of the United States,” said RGA Spokesperson Maddie Anderson. “Abrams stands firmly on the side of the woke activists who cost Georgia millions in revenue all because Governor Brian Kemp made it a priority to protect lives and livelihoods, keep kids in school and in the classroom, let businesses stay open and grow their workforce, and make it easier to vote and harder to cheat. Over the past four years, Governor Kemp has exhibited courageous leadership for Georgians and guided his state through a turbulent time. Stacey Abrams spent her time touring the country in search of fame and fortune. The RGA looks forward to ensuring Abrams is once again soundly defeated.”
Governor Brian Kemp (R) has weighed in as well:
“With Stacey Abrams in control, Georgia would have shut down, students would have been barred from their classrooms, and woke politics would be the law of the land and the lesson plan in our schools. Her far-left agenda of open borders, gun confiscation, high taxes, and anti-law enforcement policies don’t reflect who we are as Georgians.
Stacey’s never-ending campaign for power has already hurt Georgia businesses and cost our state millions – all in service to her ultimate ambition of becoming President of the United States. Next November’s election for Governor is a battle for the soul of our state.
I’m in the fight against Stacey Abrams, the failed Biden agenda, and their woke allies to keep Georgia the best place to live, work, and raise a family.”
Vernon Jones’ Party candidate Vernon Jones shared the following:
“Today, Stacey Abrams joined the race for Governor with plans to introduce the same failed, liberal agenda in Georgia that is hurting Americans in every corner of the country.
Radical leftists like Stacey Abrams are why I left the Democrat Party, and the last thing I will allow them to take is our beloved state. That is why I am running for Governor.
In 2018, Brian Kemp defeated Stacey Abrams by the skin of his teeth. And in 2020, he betrayed us.
In 2022, we cannot afford to cut it so close. I am the only candidate in the race for Governor who can grow the party, defeat Stacey Abrams, and Take Georgia Back”.
