Meet the GOP Gubernatorial Candidates

June 20, 2018

GEORGIA Today, the Democratic Party of Georgia released two separate videos- one on Brian Kemp, the other on Casey Cagle– highlighting attacks both candidates received during the Republican gubernatorial primary election. Fellow Republicans’ claims about Kemp and Cagle covered a broad range of topics including abuse of power, misuse of taxpayer dollars, favoritism of special interests over Georgia families, potential government cover-ups, and utter incompetence.

With the GOP runoff seven weeks away, Democratic Party of Georgia Chair DuBose Porter says leaders from both parties can agree on one thing- Brian Kemp and Casey Cagle have too much baggage and far too many weaknesses to be considered credible, trustworthy candidates for Governor.

Casey Cagle has been caught chartering flights like his own personal taxi service,” said Porter. “He’s forced the government to pick him up at his home airport and then forced Georgia taxpayers to pick up the tab. After paying $250,000 dollars to fly Mr. Cagle around the state, Democratic and Republican taxpayers have had enough.

And Brian Kemp is too incompetent to manage the Secretary of State’s office,” continued Porter. “In charge of protecting our state’s voting records, his office was responsible for two of the largest data breaches in state history. More than 6 million Georgians had their Social Security numbers released, leaving hard-working citizens and businesses vulnerable to attack. Kemp has done nothing but fail at his current job.

“It is clear Republicans are left with two bad options to carry them into November.”
