(TheRedWire.com) – On Monday, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) revealed that he would not place a bid for the White House next year, pointing out how vital his state is in the GOP primary race.
In an interview with CNN’s Kaitlan Collins on “The Source,” Kemp pointed out that there are always different opportunities and that he currently has a “great job.” He added that, in his opinion, more people being added to the primary race would not help the party win the general election against President Biden. He then reaffirmed that he would not be running for the White House and that in politics, there are always different doors that open depending on how things happen.
In the past, Kemp has often pushed former President Donald Trump to move forward and stop referencing the false and unfounded allegations that the 2020 presidential election had been stolen. He added that the more Trump continues this narrative, the more likely he is to lose Georgia in November.
Kemp alleged that without Georgia, the Republicans did not have a clear path to win the White House. Kemp and Trump have often gotten into disputes over the attempts of the former President to overturn the election results in the state. Trump lost Georgia by less than 12,000 votes. Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis is investigating these attempts and has hinted that final charging decisions, in this case, will be made within August.
