Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “Brian Kemp says Georgia Republicans must 'run like we're hungry again' to counter Democratic gains in the state”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

In November 2018, now-Gov. Brian Kemp of Georgia won that year's gubernatorial contest over former Democratic state House minority leader Stacey Abrams by a 50.2%-48.8% margin — a narrow result in what used to be solidly Republican territory.

Two years later, President Joe Biden defeated then-President Donald Trump in the state by roughly 12,000 votes in the 2020 election, with Democrats Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff winning the dual Senate runoff elections in January 2021.

The Peach State began to take on a hint of blue as it morphed into a purple battleground that has become truly competitive for both political parties.

And Kemp, who is again facing Abrams in a rematch this fall, recognizes that the Georgia of 2012 is not the Georgia of 2022.

During a recent campaign event in Toccoa, Ga., Kemp made the case that the upcoming election will test the strength of the GOP as the party must now compete in a state that has changed dramatically in recent years, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
