Donald Trump lost to Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp- and Trump’s Kingmaker status still remains unchallenged

Governor Brian Kemp defeated Trump-backed candidate David Perdue in the Primary elections and emerged victorious. Still, the totality of Tuesday’s contests emphasized the sustained power of Trumpism in Republican politics 18 months after he was voted out of office. Trump’s endorsed candidates have won in several primaries thus showing the influence Trump still has on the elections.

Kemp won against Perdue with 70% more votes. Trump-backed candidate David Perdue has expressed his opinions on how he is in support of Kemp against Stacey Adams. “I want you to know tonight that I am fully supporting Brian Kemp in his run to beat Stacey Abrams. It’s emotional for all of us, we’re disappointed, I get that. Let’s take a few hours, lick our wounds, and tomorrow morning, you’re going to hear me going to work for Brian Kemp to make damn sure that Stacey Abrams is never governor of Georgia,” said Perdue.

Kemp is to face Stacey Adams this fall in what will become one of America’s most consequential governor’s races. Although Kemp is a powerful candidate the true test of his power will be taken during the gubernatorial elections. Though it is very sad and disheartening that Perdue was unable to win the primary elections against Kemp doesn’t mean that this is the end of Donald Trump.

Trump is one of the most powerful people in American politics right now mostly due to dwindling Democratic support in battleground states. Biden’s declining job approval ratings are only making things easier for the Trump camp. And Trump is leaving no stone unturned to make a comeback in 2024.

Most republicans are of the opinion that Trump is almost certain to make a comeback in 2024’s presidential elections. The basis of Trump’s campaign is the 2020 rigged presidential election. Trump’s insistence on the rigged election seems to have helped Doug Mastriano, the Republican nominee for Governor in Pennsylvania, sail to victory. Because all the strings related to American politics are now in Trump’s hands, his endorsements are still worth their weight in gold for young politicians. Therefore, Kemp’s victory against Trump-endorsed Perdue does nothing to challenge Trump’s Kingmaker status.

About Donald Trump’s rift with Brian Kemp

Trump, enraged by Kemp’s unwillingness to cooperate with his unusual effort to reverse Georgia’s 2020 election results, personally recruited former Sen. David Perdue to run in the primary. Trump even persuaded another Republican to withdraw from the race, paving the way for Perdue to win.

Kemp, on the other hand, emerged as a powerful contender who was able to raise large sums of money, allowing him to flood Georgia with television and other advertisements. In the last days of the campaign, he used the power of his office to show voters what he could do for them, unveiling a $5.5 billion, 8,100-job Hyundai Motor facility near Savannah.
