Report: Kemp Defies Trump in Georgia’s Governor Race

Every poll indicated that Gov. (R-Ga.) held a commanding lead over President Trump’s handpicked challenger, former U.S. Sen. , heading into tonight’s primary.

In the end, the polls were correct.

According to election expert Dave Wasserman, of The Cook Political Report, Kemp has cruised to victory, running on his conservative bona fides while judiciously refraining from attacking the former president.

Stacey Abrams, the former minority leader in the House of Representatives, won the Democratic nomination.

Prognosticators expect an ultra-competitive gubernatorial election in the Peach State, although most give Kemp a slight edge given that the political environment heavily favors Republicans.

On the Senate side, Republican Herschel Walker dominated his competitors in the GOP primary and will face Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-Ga.) in the general election.

Meanwhile, with less than 20% of the vote counted, incumbent Brad Raffensperger leads Congressman Jody Hice by 16% in the contentious Republican primary for Georgia secretary of state.

This story is developing. American Liberty News will have a full recap of Tuesday’s primary elections and what it means for the midterms Wednesday morning.
