Governor Kemp kicks off re-election campaign in Perry

PERRY, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) — Governor Brian Kemp held a kick off rally for his re-election campaign right here in Middle Georgia Saturday afternoon.

He announced his run for re-election during the rally at the Georgia National Fairgrounds in Perry and said he wants to continue fighting for the people in the state.

State Senator Larry Walker and other state representatives were present to show their support for the Governor.

“We have come so far,” Gov. Kemp said. “These policies, a lot of them that I’ve been talking about, sure, some of them have been on my watch, but the foundation that has been built in this state didn’t just happen over the last two and a half years, it started right here in middle Georgia.”

Throughout the rally, he spoke about the importance for the teacher pay raise, along with the re-opening of the state during the pandemic.

Another key topic he discussed was his support for local businesses and his support for getting Georgians back to work.

As he concluded the rally, Kemp said he wants to continue to fight for all Georgians and ensure they have opportunities while also ensuring safety.
