According to a Fox News report, top Georgia Democrat Kwanza Hall, the former Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor, has decided to endorse GOP candidate Brian Kemp over Dem Stacey Abrams in the gubernatorial race.
Hall made the announcement Friday, saying Kemp has the ability to make “tough decisions.”
“While we don’t agree on every issue, it’s abundantly clear that Brian Kemp is a man of character, a strong leader, and someone who Georgians can trust to put them and their interests first,” Hall said in a statement.
“I greatly appreciate Congressman Hall’s support in this campaign,” Kemp said in the statement. “Kwanza has ably served our capital city and state for many years, and I look forward to working with him and other hardworking Georgians to put political differences aside and keep our state the best place to live, work, and raise a family for the next four years.”
From Fox News:
Hall is also a former member of the Atlanta City Council, and briefly served as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives for Georgia’s 5th Congressional District following the death of former Democratic Rep. John Lewis, who represented the seat.
Recent polls have shown Kemp ahead of Abrams.
