AUGUSTA (WJBF) — Hundreds of Georgia Republicans are in Augusta this weekend as the GOP Convention kicked off Friday.
So far, 4 Republicans have officially thrown their hats into the race for Governor, including Lt. Governor Casey Cagle and Secretary of State Brian Kemp.
Kemp has been Secretary of State for more than 7 years, but he’s been in politics for a lot longer.
“I started my own construction company in the early 90’s and then that evolved into me getting involved in government because I was just like a lot of people, frustrated with government and I felt like we needed a common sense fighter in office,” Kemp said.
