.@BrianKempGA greeted at the Ga GOP convention with loud boos. He was speaking for about 30 seconds before it was quiet enough to hear him from the press area. But he got his first full applause when he mentioned Georgia being the first state to reopen during the pandemic. #gapol pic.twitter.com/4LcgRqkvoO— Maya T. Prabhu (@MayaTPrabhu) June 5, 2021
Kemp was at odds with the former president and his foundation ever since he coached the nation’s 16 electoral votes for Biden, and again after Georgia’s recount. Trump has repeatedly criticized the governor for not indulging in assertions of a stolen election.
A Georgia Republican campaigning to unseat Kemp in 2022, former Democrat Vernon Jones, known as the governor a”RINO,” Republican in name only, in the conference for not advocating Trump’s election fraud claims. Jones receiving applause for financing Trump’s claims of widespread fraud signs that the former president’s stronghold on the Republican Party, showing that being an opposition could prove to be a losing move.
