  1. I’m not speaking as a Republican or Democrat, but I have to ask. Why would anyone in their right mind NOT want a fiscally responsible CEO running their state. Georgia is one of the best-run states in the country. Our coffers are full, and people are working.

  2. Thomas Sumner wholeheartedly agree. We are in great fiscal shape in the state due to Kemp’s leadership. I am thankful that Kemp marched to his own drum during the pandemic, criticized by quite a few. Everytime I see the opposition ads stating ” people need to be told what to do”, I cringe. Kemp has been a fiscally responsible “CEO” for our state.

  3. Kemp is a pawn and a crook, and no amount of goodies thrown in this direction will change my mind. Not a fan of the other 2 main candidates running either. Will support one of the lesser known candidates because they have shown integrity that the frontrunners of both parties haven’t.
