Questions Remain Unanswered Ahead of Kemp & Perdue’s Second Debate

April 28, 2022

Ahead of their second GOP gubernatorial primary debate, critical questions remain unanswered by David Perdue and Brian Kemp. After their first debate, where both candidates doubled down on their support for harmful policies and opposition to common sense solutions that could help improve lives across the state, questions posed by Georgians remain unaddressed:

  1. Now that HB 1084 has been signed into law, teachers will be restricted on what they can discuss in Georgia classrooms. Why do you think politicians know better than teachers, local school boards, and parents? And will you fire teachers who just want to teach students a complete and honest history of our country?
  1. Over $10 billion has been cut from K-12 education in the last two decades, nearly $1 billion was cut by Kemp in 2020 alone, and Georgia ranks 38th in the nation for per-student funding. Why do you support policies that strip funds from public schools?
  1. After law enforcement officers, a pro-gun group, and mayors across the state voiced concerns, an AJC poll showed 70% Georgians are opposed, and revelations that over 5,200 Georgians were denied a concealed carry permit, and after data showed states that passed similar legislation became less safe — why do you still support criminal carry and what do you say to Georgians who are worried?
  1. Why do you oppose Medicaid expansion, even though that position threatens rural hospitals, drives up costs for Georgia families without coverage,  blocks the creation of more than 64,000 jobs, and deprives more than 500,000 Georgians of access to coverage?
  1. Does Brian Kemp stand with David Perdue on his call to eliminate the state income tax?
  1. Is Brian Kemp willing to call out Donald Trump by name for his lies about the 2020 election?
