Georgia Governor Brian Kemp (R) officially has a primary challenger.
Former Democrat Vernon Jones announced he would be running for Georgia Governor — as a Republican!
Fox News reported:
A former Democratic state lawmaker in Georgia, who switched to the GOP after backing then-President Trump’s reelection bid, on Friday announced a 2022 Republican primary challenge against Gov. Brian Kemp, who sits high atop the former president’s list of political targets.
The former lawmaker, Vernon Jones, tweeted Thursday evening, “The time has come. Georgia is ready!” He announced that he would hold a press conference Friday morning outside the Georgia state capitol building, in downtown Atlanta, to announce his candidacy.
Jones endorsed and voted for Trump in the 2020 election.
On January 6th Vernon Jones officially announced that he would be joining the Republican Party.
Moments ago, I announced that I am officially joining the Republican Party.
Now more than ever, the Republican Party is in desperate need of leaders that know how to fight.
I know how to fight.
