Blue Ridge, Ga. – Georgia Gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp continues his campaign trail as the General Election Runoff date of July 24 looms ever closer. The current Georgia Secretary of State, Kemp, made a stop in Blue Ridge, Ga. on Monday to address his supporters and those still undecided between him and current Georgia Lt. Governor Casey Cagle for the Republican nomination.
Introducing Kemp to the crowd were two political endorsers from the Georgia House of Representatives. The first to speak was District 2 Representative Steve Tarvin.
“Integrity means the most to me in anybody’s character,” Tarvin said enthusiastically speaking of Kemp.
Tarvin went on to say that Kemp is a family man, a man of honesty and a man of faith: “I’ve known Brian for ten years. In those ten years, I’ve never seen him waiver.”
Jason Ridley, Georgia District 6 Representative, concurred with Tarvin’s introduction and speaking of Kemp said, “This is a man of integrity and a family man and is one of us.”
Ridley spoke of Kemp’s humbleness and his beginnings and being able to relate with all Georgians because of this: “That’s the most important thing.”
After brief introductions, Kemp addressed his supporters thanking them for their hard work in making his campaign a success, “It’s been a long 15 months, but the last two polls that have come out… this race is a dead heat.”
Kemp readdressed his four point plan to put “Georgians first.” The first two key issues for Kemp is to make Georgia number 1 for small businesses and to reform state government by implementing a spending cap.
“We can have broad based tax reform and lower the state income tax,” Kemp said expanding on the idea of applying a spending cap on Georgia state government.
Kemp also wishes to focus on strengthening rural Georgia: “We’ve got to have a governor that is going to focus on our whole state, and that includes the North Georgia area that we’re in right now.”
“The most important thing is, we need a governor who is going to put you first, ahead of the special interests, the status quo, the politically correct, and those that are here illegally,” Kemp spoke of his final point in his plan and the need for Georgia to have public safety reform.
Kemp also had a message about his opponent Cagle: “We need a governor who will do the right thing when no one is watching. Clearly I’ve done that over my whole career. The same can’t be said for my opponent. With the tapes that came out he will say or do anything to hold on to political power.”
Kemp spoke of the recent tapes released in which Cagle can be heard speaking to former gubernatorial candidate Clay Tippins about a recent piece of legislation that had been passed. Cagle who previously opposed the “poor policy” told Tippins about his change of stance, “It ain’t about public policy. It’s about s*** politics.”
When asked specifically why he should receive the Republican nomination over his opponent, Kemp responded that beyond his clear plan for the state, he also has a record as Secretary of State of defeating the Democratic nominee Stacey Abrams.
“All of these liberal groups that are going to be in play in Georgia supporting her (Abrams), I’ve fought,” Kemp said about his past experiences with Abrams. Citing that he has already faced George Soros, Eric Holder, Thomas Perez, Common Cause Georgia and New Georgia Project, Kemp is confident that he can beat them again.
Kemp explained where some of these groups came into conflict with the Secretary of State office, “They sued us and several counties saying that we weren’t registering voters, 10 different counts. Then they wanted us to settle. I wouldn’t do it. I made them go to court and we won all 10 cases.”
“I know what’s coming,” Kemp said about his preparation if he were to receive the Republican nomination. “I know how to fight. We’re going to have to have somebody that’s going to be not only a good fighter, but right on the issues.”
Kemp will continue his statewide campaign in the upcoming weeks in hopes of achieving his goal of becoming Georgia’s next governor.

Disintegration By Their Own Hand
The more Democrats take offense at Trump’s personality quirks, the more they try to create damming issues out of his ‘tweets,’ the more they struggle against the will of the voters who put Trump in office, the deeper they descend into the quicksand of the irrelevance they’re already facing. They are a wounded party that is seriously divided, and lacking adult leadership.
For example “Dickie” Durban, sat on a Senate committee arguing with the Secretary of the DHS about what word Trump actually said about S__t hole countries, that she was present at. Well, Dickie was there too. So what? Dicky reveals mendacity at its worse but he’s really exposing the Left’s descent into oblivion. Their dysfunction is evident and destructive, to them, and they don’t see it. Their disintegration is well underway.
The three Democrat senators and the three Republican senators, supposedly presenting a compromise DACA plan to the President like he asked for, actually didn’t present any new plan at all as Trump wanted, but offered instead a rehash of the Democrats same old compromise, amnesty for DACA’s or no spending bill.
And, as always, the compromise came in with the usual suspects in the GOP agreeing to the Democrat agenda. I thought that at the last election we were through with that nonsense. In other words, the Democrats have thrown the dice and are willing to shut down the government, thinking Trump will cave just like Republicans always do, thereby securing for them the future of the Democratic voting base. “Dickie” Durban even threatened Trump with withdrawing the support of the Congressional Black Caucus. It must have shocked him (Dickie) when Trumps told him he didn’t care about the CBC, their demands or what their opinion was. Trump fends off all such attacks from the hysterical Left leaving them bereft of suitable answers except obstruction.
Mueller’s investigation opened a veritable can of worms, for the Democrats. Mueller still threatens to interview Trump, under Miranda warning presumably, to attempt to extract any level of negative admission from him that could be hung around his neck. All this, while the case against Hillary Clinton’s negligence and gross mishandling of America’s Top Secret/SCI/NOFORN communications, felonies by the way, and her grubby hand in the Uranium One business, is regaining strength. Once that ball gets rolling it will sweep up all before it. Clearly, the institutional deep state wall that was protecting the Clintons is disintegrating.
The Clinton cabal of DoJ & FBI enablers and protectors is peeling off like onion skins beneath the knife and the eye stinging burn of criminal culpability is drawing attention to the mess that Clinton made. It’s a race to see who goes down first, Trump or Hillary. Today, new FBI Director Wray seems intent on mending the Bureau’s torn ties to Congress by dismantling the Comey led ring that enameled the Clintons and the DNC to wallow in criminality without consequence. As demanded, the FBI has finally delivered subpoenaed documents to Congress concerning the decision making process that led to Comey’s decision not to prosecute Hillary, or anyone else, for recklessly compromising national security. It’s a wide net being thrown and will harvest many.
Hillary was a damaged candidate and the Left wouldn’t believe it. If they did, it was ignored and against all pundit predictions, Hillary, the key to protecting the Deep State, lost her rigged election to a real non political firebrand, exactly what Americans wanted. No more giving in to demands of socialist Political Correctness. No more free flow of illegals and their strings of family, no more national socialism. Elections do have consequence.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (18Jan18)
