Gov. Kemp arrives in Columbus, shares marketing campaign guarantees


Columbus, Ga. (WRBL) – Governor Brian Kemp stopped in Columbus Monday night for a campaign rally at the DoubleTree Hotel. The incumbent Republican governor, aiming for re-election in 2022, met with potential voters in Fountain City about his plans to “put the Georgians first”.

Attendees were able to meet Governor Kemp and First Lady Marty Kemp, who arrived earlier in the day after a trip to LaGrange. Kemp spoke to the crowd about his efforts to fight crime in Atlanta, raise teachers’ salaries, and “defend electoral integrity” through Senate Bill 202.

Kemp also talked about how his experience building his first business helped guide his decisions to “protect the livelihoods of small businesses” during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Kemp was elected Georgia’s 83rd governor in 2018 with a plan to “stimulate economic growth, reform the state government, strengthen rural communities, cut healthcare costs and protect Georgian families from violence”.

In May 2021, the Kemp for Governor Campaign officially launched its network of grassroots leaders across Peach State in hopes of retaining the governor’s seat.

“We work hard every day to build support and keep adding to our ground clearance,” said Kemp. “We announced grassroots chairs in all 159 districts months ago. We are expanding that further. We’re also focused on our fundraising, but we’re just reminding people of the achievements we’ve had and the record I’ve put together to deliver on the campaign promises I spoke about in 2017 and 2018. “

Members of the Columbus / Muscogee Republican Party attended the event, although the party will not endorse a candidate until after the state primaries. Governor Kemp continues his walking tour of Georgia Tuesday as he heads to Georgetown on a tour of D&J Plastics.
