Brian Kemp launches ‘Georgia First’ campaign for governor
Article originally published on AJC.com
Secretary of State Brian Kemp opened his campaign for governor Saturday by borrowing themes from Donald Trump, pledging a “Georgia first” strategy that would crack down on illegal immigration as he took aim at establishment forces and the media.
The Athens Republican pledged to impose an adjustable spending cap on Georgia’s growing state budget and return the rest to taxpayers, and drew applause from hundreds at a Cobb GOP breakfast with broadsides against “fake news” and the well-connected political status quo.
He promised his administration would “treat rural Georgia the same way we treat metro Atlanta” and emphasized his background as the owner of stone and construction firms – jobs he continues to hold as a statewide elected official.
“It helped that unlike many, I never ever became a full-time politician,” he said.
