Former President Donald Trump has launched a new ad in support of a primary opponent against Georgia GOP Gov. Brian Kemp.
Television ads supporting the primary campaign of former GOP Sen. David Perdue for governor featuring Trump started running on Tuesday, where the former president took aim at Gov. Kemp, Breitbart News reported.
“The Democrats walked all over Brian Kemp. He was afraid of Stacey ‘the Hoax’ Abrams. Brian Kemp let us down. We can’t let it happen again,” he said in the ad.
“David Perdue, an America First conservative outsider, is the only candidate for governor endorsed by President Donald Trump,” the narrator said in the ad.
“David Perdue is an outstanding man. He’s tough. He’s smart. He has my complete and total endorsement. Vote for David Perdue,” Trump said to end the ad.
Also flashing on the screen are the words “Stop Stacey, Save Georgia,” the slogan for the campaign tour Perdue plans to begin on Tuesday in Alpharetta and continue throughout the week.
Conservative Brief adds:
Perdue, a wealthy businessman who served as a U.S. senator for one term, plans to make about a dozen stops on the tour this week promoting the slogan, which some may find familiar from the high-stakes runoff race in which he and former Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) ran in January 2021. “Win Georgia, Save America,” the pair would assert throughout the runoffs as they emphasized that the Senate majority depended on at least one of the two winning their election. Perdue and Loeffler both ultimately suffered narrow and stunning defeats, which resulted in a Democrat-controlled Senate in Washington.
The former senator said he is thrilled to be back on the campaign trail.
“I’m excited to be back on the road talking with Georgia voters about what’s at stake in this election,” he said.
“This race is about putting people ahead of politicians, and that’s exactly what I’ll do as Governor. We’ll leave no stone unturned to share our bold vision to unite Republicans, stop Stacey Abrams, and save Georgia,” he said.
Trump endorsed Perdue Dec. 6 when the former senator announced his campaign.
“Great to see that David Perdue is running for Governor of Georgia. He is a Conservative fighter who isn’t afraid of the Radical Left, and is the only candidate in Georgia who can beat Stacey “The Hoax” Abrams in November. Brian Kemp has failed Georgia. He caved to Stacey Abrams before the 2020 Election and allowed massive Election Fraud to take place,” Trump wrote in an email to supporters.
“The signing of the Stacey Abrams-backed Consent Decree, so stupidly giving her and the Democrats everything they wanted, was a monumental mistake for not only Georgia, but also for our Nation!” he said in the email.
