​​Ron DeSantis Has a Critical Warning for the People of Georgia

In the state of Georgia, Governor Brian Kemp (R-GA) is running for a second term. Kemp is currently being opposed by former Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) and Stacey Abrams (D-GA).

Perdue’s view is that he should be the one to take up the Georgia GOP nomination since Kemp failed in this leadership of the state. Perdue also has the endorsement of former President Trump as an asset in his campaign.

At the same time, Stacey Abrams is running for governor for the second time in a row. Abrams ran against Kemp back in 2018, yet lost the election. If Kemp is able to ward off the challenge from Perdue, he’ll find himself up against Abrams for the second time in a row.

In all honesty, there are many ways the Georgia election could turn out. However, Governor Ron DeSantis( R-FL) has an important message that everyone in Georgia should hear, according to Fox News.

Potential Friction Between Florida and Georgia

This past Friday, the Florida governor pointed out that if Abrams ends up defeating either Kemp or Perdue, this will land Florida and Georgia into a “Cold War.”

DeSantis explained that having Cuba’s dictator to the south of him, while also having Abrams as governor to the north would be horrific. The Florida governor then made an appeal to Georgians to “handle” things in their upcoming election and ensure that Abrams doesn’t win the race.

Finally, DeSantis expressed his appreciation for Georgia, explaining that all will be well with Abrams being kept out of the governor’s mansion.

Despite Perdue having the support of Trump, he is still a few points behind Governor Kemp in the Georgia GOP primary polls. Therefore, this seems to suggest that Kemp could eke out a win, despite opposition from Trump, and then go on to face Abrams.

It gets more interesting though. In general election polls that show Perdue running against Abrams vs. Kemp running against Abrams, both Republicans end up beating her.

However, these polls show that Kemp’s defeat of Abrams comes at a slightly larger margin than Perdue’s defeat of Abrams.

In Georgia, President Biden’s approval ratings are not good. This, too, could play a role in tipping the scale in favor of Republicans.

Yet, at the end of the day, only time will tell which Republican wins the Georgia GOP primary and whether or not this Republican can keep the Georgia governor’s mansion from going to Abrams.
