Brian Kemp Visits Trenton for Campaign Stop

TRENTON, Ga. (WDEF)- Georgia Governor Brian Kemp visited Dade County this morning for a campaign event.

His campaign hosted a breakfast at the Trenton Community Center where he had a roughly 30 minute speech to a room full of his supporters. Kemp spent much of his speech encouraging his supporters to assist his campaign as much as possible to win re-election in November against his Democratic challenger, Stacey Abrams.

Kemp among talking points such as supporting law enforcement, keeping Georgia’s economy open, and investing in rural North Georgia, gave out two key promises.

First, he stated there would be a tax refund worth a billion dollars. He stated that this was to help inflation and to, “Put more money back into your pockets.”

Second, he said that there would be a statewide property tax relief grant to offset rising housing prices and that he wants to cut statewide property taxes by “15 to 25 percent”.

Abrams has also been campaigning around the state, spending part of last weekend in Augusta.
