Kemp Vows To Fully Fund Public Education, Abrams Will Only Fund Her Political Ambition

(Athens, GA) – Georgia educators are on a hunger strike – urging the next governor to carry on Deal’s legacy and fully fund public school education. In response, conservative businessman and Republican nominee, Brian Kemp, issued the following statement:

“Thanks to Governor Deal’s conservative leadership, our state weathered the Great Recession and emerged stronger than ever. In addition to making Georgia the number one state for business, reforming our criminal justice system, and slashing taxes on hardworking Georgians, Deal also restored QBE funding.

“As governor, I will build on Nathan Deal’s legacy and fully fund public school education. We must invest in our future today and ensure that all students have access to a quality education – no matter their zip code.

“Sadly, we know that my opponent – who refuses to pay her taxes but loaned $50,000 to her campaign – is more concerned with funding her political career than doing the right thing. She always puts her political ambition first.”
