In the final GOP gubernatorial primary debate, David Perdue and Brian Kemp continued their bitter infighting, joined by Kandiss Taylor, who blasted them both as establishment politicians. All the candidates doubled down on their commitment to extreme policies that would be detrimental to Georgia schools, public safety, and access to health care. The Democratic Party of Georgia released the following statement in response:
“Rather than share their plans to help working families if elected our next governor, David Perdue and Brian Kemp used their three chances to address Georgians during debates to bicker over disproven election claims and double down on dangerous policies like criminal carry and school censorship designed to rile up their right-wing base. Neither offered ideas to curb gun violence, the leading cause of death for American children, or expand access to health care, even though Georgia has the second-highest uninsured rate in the country and rural hospitals are closing. Kemp and Perdue’s extreme policies that make us less safe, jeopardize our kids’ education, and increase our health care costs are the problem — and Stacey Abrams is the solution,” said Congresswoman Nikema Williams, Chair of the Democratic Party of Georgia.
