The good news is more and more people are waking up to the dark arts of Republican politics. If the awakening continues things will change. The bad news is we’ve got to plow through a few more losses to get more lions awake.
Mike Pence is going to rally in Georgia on behalf of Brian Kemp’s reelection bid, because of course he is, Club rules.
The GOP club has outplayed the MAGA voters in the state of Georgia by using their private club rules along with the assist from an open primary.
Brian Kemp will win the GA republican (open ballot) primary with the help of democrats and GOP club endorsements.
The defeat of David Perdue will provide the Pence/Bush tenured club officials, ie. ‘the old guard‘, with the opportunity to disparage Donald Trump, claim MAGA is dead and Trump’s endorsements worthless. The media are all waiting anticipatory glee for the opportunity.
Sometimes you just have to swallow the bitter pill and move along. Both clubs in Georgia have made a deal, everything now is just watching the illusion of choice unfold.
NEW YORK (AP) — Former Vice President Mike Pence will campaign with Georgia’s incumbent Republican Gov. Brian Kemp the day before this month’s GOP primary in his most significant political break with former President Donald Trump to date.
Kemp’s campaign announced Friday morning that Pence will headline a get-out-the-vote rally for Kemp on Monday, May 23rd, the day before the vote. That puts Pence in direct conflict with Trump-endorsed candidate David Perdue, who has been trailing in the polls. Kemp is one of Trump’s top targets this election cycle because of his refusal to cooperate with Trump’s efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election.
“Brian Kemp is my friend, a man dedicated to faith, family and the people of Georgia,” Pence said in a statement. “I am proud to offer my full support for four more years of Brian Kemp as governor of the great state of Georgia!”
The news comes as Pence has taken steps to distance himself from Trump as the former congressman and Indiana governor considers a 2024 presidential run that could put him into direct competition with his former boss. (read more)
