ATLANTA – Today, as thousands of UGA fans headed to Sanford Stadium to watch the beloved Bulldogs, they were confronted by an unsettling realization: Brian Kemp was cheering for their opponent, the Tennessee Volunteers. Not only were Dawgs fans greeted with pro-Volunteers tweets and the #GoVols hashtag by Brian Kemp on Twitter… they also witnessed a plane flying overhead carrying a banner message: “@briankemp SAYS…GO VOLS”.
Tweets from @briankemp included:
I don’t have a health care plan for Georgia, but I do have plans to cheer for @Vol_Football today! #GoVols #gapol
Funny story: I lost the Social Security numbers of 6 million Georgians. I’m a hero in Tennessee! #GoVols #gapol https://www.wabe.org/6-
No guns allowed in @SanfordStadium. Who does that?! What am I going to point at all these teenagers? #GoVols #gapol
500,000 Georgia Bulldogs fans don’t need access to Medicaid… Send those tax dollars up north! #GoVols #gapol https://www.mac
“The tweets from @briankemp were almost indistinguishable from the bad-for-Georgia message that Brian Kemp — the one running for governor — has been promoting on the campaign trail,” said Democratic Party of Georgia spokesman Seth Bringman. “Based on his failed record and his opposition to Medicaid expansion for 500,000 Georgians, we wouldn’t be surprised if Brian Kemp the candidate were also cheering against Georgia today.”
