In an act of opposition against former President Donald Trump, former Vice President Mike Pence will rally with Gov. Brian Kemp (R) on the eve of Georgia’s primary election day.

Kemp confirmed the news on his Twitter account, saying he was “honored” to have Pence’s support.

The Vice Presidents leadership was instrumental in creating the most prosperous economy in American history, including here in Georgia, and his commitment to building a safer, stronger America represents the highest ideals of our party.

“The Vice President’s leadership was instrumental in creating the most prosperous economy in American history, including here in Georgia, and his commitment to building a safer, stronger America represents the highest ideals of our party,” Kemp said.

Pence had kind words for Kemp.

“Brian Kemp is one of the most successful conservative governors in America,” said Pence. “He built a safer and stronger Georgia by cutting taxes, empowering parents and investing in teachers, funding law enforcement, and standing strong for the right to life. Brian Kemp is my friend, a man dedicated to faith, family and the people of Georgia. I am proud to offer my full support for four more years of Brian Kemp as governor of the great state of Georgia!”

Trump, who holds a grudge with Kemp over a perceived lack of action in the wake of the 2020 election, notoriously endorsed Kemp’s opponent, former Senator David Perdue (R-GA), who lost his reelection bid in a runoff in January of 2021.

But Trump has seen pushback from members of the Republican Party for his support of Perdue.

Just this week, he was engaged in a war of words with former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who, along with Governor Doug Ducey (R-AZ) and Governor Pete Ricketts (R-NE) have sided with Kemp.

“Today, the worst ‘election integrity’ governor in the country, Brian Kemp, loaded the great state of Georgia up with RINOs. That’s right, he had them all,” Trump said in a Wednesday statement. “Chris Christie, Doug Ducey from Arizona, and Pete Ricketts from Nebraska. That tells you all you need to know about what you are getting in Georgia – just a continuation of bad elections and a real RINO if you vote for Brian Kemp.”

Some view the race as a litmus test for Trump’s grip on the Republican Party, after Trump-endorsed J.D. Vance last week won Ohio’s hotly-contested U.S. Senate primary on the heels of Trump’s endorsement of his campaign.

The primary election is Tuesday.

Georgia Issues More than $415 Million in Federal COVID-19 Relief Funds for Nonprofit Recovery

by T.A. DeFeo

 

Georgia is doling out more than $415 million in federal relief money as grants to help nonprofits recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The money, which goes to more than 30 recipients, is from the American Rescue Plan’s Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds.

“We remained focused on protecting lives and livelihoods throughout the pandemic, and our approach gave us a leg up in the Great Recovery,” Gov. Brian Kemp said in an announcement. “I’m proud of our state’s resilience, and as of today, we have worked hard and identified ways to further deliver assistance to hardworking Georgians, support businesses and speed up the recovery of impacted industries, and rebuild crucial public services.

“Our balanced and targeted approach has also allowed us to ensure we are accounting for additional high-need areas. On top of the awards we are announcing today, we are also announcing the creation of a Victims Service Provider Grant as well as the Georgia Investments in Housing Grant. Both will help us serve those most vulnerable in our communities — like crime victims and individuals experiencing homelessness.”

The state is allotting $150 million to the Georgia Hotel & Lodging Association to help Georgia hoteliers. Katie Byrd, a spokesperson for Kemp, did not immediately respond to a request for more info about the specific number of grant recipients.
