Trump Invests in First Midterm Race – Against This Republican

Trump Invests in First Midterm Race – Against This Republican

President Trump’s Save America PAC has amassed a massive war chest.

But despite having $110 million cash on hand, the former president’s official super PAC has been famously stingy.

An influx of cash in highly-competitive races would undoubtedly increase the number of Republican victories this November and the likelihood that the GOP will take back the majority in the House and Senate.

Furthermore, should Trump run and win the White House in 2024, having more conservatives in Congress would help him enact his agenda.

With T-minus seven months until Election Day, the 45th president has finally made his first major donation in a closely watched midterm race.

However, it’s not against a liberal Democrat. Instead, Trump is going all-in against a conservative Republican: Governor .

In Trump’s mind, Kemp committed an unforgivable sin when he declined to overturn Georgia’s presidential election results based on unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud.

As a result of his perceived disloyalty, Trump subsequently declared Kemp a RINO and made it his mission to destroy him politically.

Yet his vendetta against the man has only seen mixed results. So far, Kemp’s Trump-endorsed challenger, former U.S. Senator (R-Ga.), has failed to catch fire. Polling shows Perdue running a competitive campaign but consistently behind the incumbent governor.

Meanwhile, Kemp has shrewdly refrained from attacking Trump while emphasizing his conservative bona fides.

The governor recently signed legislation making his state the 25th to enact constitutional carry. He stood tall against the corporate backlash to commonsense election reform laws that add new identification requirements to absentee ballots and limit ballot drop boxes.

And in a new ad, Kemp reminded voters how he fought to reopen Georgia as soon as possible early in the pandemic, even when then-President Trump said he “totally disagreed” with Kemp’s decision to do so:

Bottom line? Large numbers of GOP primary voters in the Peach States seem comfortable voting for Kemp and Trump.

It remains to be seen how the 45th president will respond to these competing impulses should Kemp win the primary.
