Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “Trump doesn't rule out supporting Brian Kemp in the Georgia gubernatorial race: 'We'll be looking at everything'”. Below is an excerpt from the article.
For nearly two years, former President Donald Trump has lobbed political attacks against Georgia Republican Gov. Brian Kemp, accusing his onetime political ally of failing to bolster his claims that the 2020 election was stolen.
After seeing now-President Joe Biden narrowly win Georgia in November 2020 and pressing Kemp to help overturn the results, Trump has spent an enormous amount of energy in an effort to undermine the governor, even encouraging former Sen. David Perdue to run as a gubernatorial primary challenger against him.
But something huge happened; not only did Kemp win the GOP primary this past May, but he defeated Perdue in an electoral landslide.
With Kemp once again set to be the standard bearer for Georgia Republicans this fall, Trump said on Saturday that he was "looking" at potentially backing the governor in November as he faces Democratic gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams in a rematch of their 2018 contest.
While speaking with Fox News Digital at the the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Dallas, the former president didn't rule out a potential endorsement as the fall election approaches.
