Last words from Republican front-runners for Governor
We spoke to both Brian Kemp and David Perdue on election eve
ATLANTA, Georgia (WDEF) – Less than 24 hours to go until Georgians go to the polls to vote for their next governor.
News 12 heard from both of the major Republican candidates: incumbent Brian Kemp, and former U.S. Senator David Perdue.
While Perdue is behind in the polls, he’s not too worried about it.
And Kemp has one message in mind for the state.
Gov. Kemp: “Make sure Georgians have good opportunity, no matter where they live, and I’m very proud of that fact. I think it’s, you know, interesting that Senator Perdue has actually critcized me on that front.”
Sen. Perdue: “Based on what I see right now, we’re going to win tomorrow. But what my major goal is to make sure Stacey Abrams is not the governor of Georgia and will never be president of the United States. So, whoever comes out of this primary tomorrow will have my full support, and I will work like crazy to make sure that Abrams is never governor of Georgia.”
A record 500 thousand people voted early in Georgia.
