Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, who is running for re-election, posted an open statement on his campaign website Monday condemning his Democrat “Defund The Police” challenger Stacey Abrams’ policies on criminals, prisons and protecting law enforcement. The last time Kemp and Abrams went head to head for the Gubernatorial seat was 2018.

Kemp was endorsed by 100+ Sheriffs who expressed their support,

“Over the last four years, Governor Kemp and his family stood shoulder to shoulder with the men and women serving in Georgia’s law enforcement community. Working alongside our departments, Governor Kemp has championed legislation to recruit and retain more officers into the profession, strengthen penalties for criminals and help keep Georgia’s streets safe, and prevent rogue local governments from stripping critical funding and resources from police.”

Showing their obvious disdain for Abrams policies and asking her to disavow her positions on law enforcement they went on to say,

“In stark contrast, Stacey Abrams has repeatedly shown complete disdain for law enforcement and the risk we take every day putting our lives on the line to serve our communities. Ms. Abrams actively serves on the governing board of – and has profited from – an anti-police organization which openly advocates for abolishing prisons and stripping local police departments of their funding.

“Stacey Abrams also supports proposals that put criminals back on our streets and clears their criminal record, and she opposed legislation to crack down on human trafficking when she served in the state legislature.

“These policies and Ms. Abrams’ role in advocating for them put Georgia’s law enforcement officers and the communities we serve at risk.

“In these uncertain times, it is critical to our profession that Georgia’s leaders stand firmly behind the men and women in law enforcement who keep Georgia families safe. We are grateful to have the support of Governor Kemp and his administration, and we call on Stacey Abrams to disavow the dangerous policies she supports.”

Fox News reported that Kemp tied Biden’s policy failures to the harm Georgia should brace for more of should Abrams wins their rematch this fall.

” Georgians want somebody that’s going to be focused on them. They do not want to go the way of Stacey Abrams. Stacey Abrams is getting credited for Joe Biden winning Georgia and being president, and you see what has that has gotten us. 40-year-high inflation, sky-rocketing gas prices, disaster at the border, more rules, more regulations, and more taxes. That’s what she would do to the state.”

He added that this fight is bigger than just who leads Georgia for the next four years,

“This is a fight not only for the soul of the state but the soul of the country. Stacey Abrams wants to be your president. If we stop her from being governor, her road to the White House ends right here and right now this November. It’s going to take everyone in this fight to beat her again”
