Kemp wins nominayion in Georgia

Georgia Republican Gov. Brian Kemp has clinched the GOP primary for governor over former U.S. Sen. David Perdue, according to The Associated Press.

Perdue was propelled into the race and endorsed by former President Donald Trump. Throughout the campaign, both continued to argue — without evidence — that Kemp allowed Democrats to steal the 2020 presidential election.

After Perdue entered the race, the primary became a test of Trump's grip on the Republican Party and whether relitigating 2020 election grievances continues to resonate with voters two years on.

Kemp now turns to a rematch this November with Democrat Stacey Abrams, who he narrowly defeated for office in 2018. If the primaries are any indication of enthusiasm ahead of the fall, voters in Georgia cast a record number of early ballots in the May primary.
