After a hard-fought primary and runoff, Georgia Republicans have our nominee.

Now is the time to unify behind a person we can trust and a bold leader who will put Georgians first. Brian Kemp is a straight-talking, conservative small businessman who will fight for us at the State Capitol.

Brian started his first business 30 years ago with a shovel and a pickup and created hundreds of jobs throughout his business career. He has a record of doing what he says
he will do – both in business and public service.

As Secretary of State, Brian visited all 159 counties in Georgia, so he understands the issues and challenges facing every corner of our state.

As governor, Brian Kemp will implement his 4-Point Plan to ensure a bright and promising future for Georgia families. From making Georgia No. 1 for small business and strengthening rural Georgia to lowering taxes and keeping our families safe from violent
criminals and gangs, we can trust Kemp to always put hardworking Georgians – not the special interests – first.

This election is critically important for our state and our future. Brian Kemp is the right
person to build on the successes of governors Perdue and Deal. He will work with the Georgia General Assembly to spur job creation, lower taxes and healthcare costs, enhance educational outcomes and crack down on violent street gangs.

I humbly ask you to join me in voting Kemp for governor on Nov. 6.
