The former Vice President of the United States of America Mike Pence has extended his support to Brian Kemp, the Governor of Georgia who is running for re-election against Senator David Perdue who is backed by former President Donald Trump. Mike Pence believes that it was wrong of the Former President to think that Pence could have played a part in overturning the 2020 presidential elections.
Pence’s separation from Trump has been one of the most significant political breakups to date. The Former President’s top target for this primary is Brian Kemp as he refused to cooperate with Trump to overturn the 2020 presidential elections. Trump further says that there will just be another bad election if the people vote for Brian Kemp. The former president even called Kemp and Pence RINO’s (Republicans in Name Only).
The feud between Brian Kemp, Mike Pence and Donald Trump
Mike Pence, the former Vice President of America, extended his support to Brian Kemp. Pence did this to defy his former boss as Brian Kemp is running against David Perdue who has been backed by Trump. “Brian Kemp is my friend, a man dedicated to faith, family and the people of Georgia,” Pence said in a statement. “I am proud to offer my full support for four more years to Brian Kemp as governor of the great state of Georgia,” said Mike Pence. Pence’s public appearance with Kemp sends a signal that the former vice president rejects the rampant theme of Trump’s political argument that he was robbed of re-election because of voter fraud.
Still infuriated over his 2020 loss to President Joe Biden, Trump has used his endorsements to reward loyalists in GOP primaries and punish those who defied him as he sought to undo legitimate election results in key battlegrounds. Kemp is arguably Trump’s biggest target in the Republican primaries this year. Georgia went blue in the presidential race for the first time since 1992, and Trump heckled Kemp to find a way to reverse those results to give the former president all of Georgia’s 16 Electoral College votes. Trump asked Kemp to call a special session of the state legislature to appoint a new slate of electors- a request Kemp refused. “Today, the worst ‘election Governor’ in the country, Brian Kemp, loaded the great state of Georgia with RINOs,” Trump said.
