MARIETTA, GA - APRIL 10: Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp speaks at a news conference about the state's new Election Integrity Law that passed this week at AJ’s Famous Seafood and Poboys on April 10, 2021 in Marietta, Georgia. Major League Baseball announced it would move the All-Star Game out of Georgia in response to the election bill, which opponents claim will negatively affect the minority population's ability to vote. There is also a concern for the economic impact this will have on the state following the MLB's decision. The bill's passage follows the Governor's decision to lift many of the restrictions in place for protection from COVID-19. (Photo by Megan Varner/Getty Images)

Georgia Governor Brian Kemp will once again face Democrat Stacey Abrams in a battle for the Governor office.

Kemp has won the Republican nomination, setting the stage for a rematch between he and Abrams in November.  Abrams ran unopposed for the Democratic party nomination.

During a concession speech, former U.S. Senator David Perdue pledged to fully support Kemp.  He said, “Tomorrow morning you are going to hear me going to work to go to work to make damn sure Stacey Abrams is not the next governor of Georgia.”
