As Election Day draws near, various newspapers are endorsing political candidates.
Republican Brian Kemp has garnered the endorsement of both the Augusta Chronicle and The Brunswick News. Below are excerpts from the endorsements.
From The Augusta Chronicle:
“…the outgoing secretary of state is a vastly experienced leader with remarkably broad experience in the legislative and executive branches of government and in the private sector as a businessman. And he’s talking about building on the estimable legacy of Gov. Nathan Deal.”
From the Brunswick News:
“Kemp has promoted making Georgia No. 1 for small businesses the first part of his four-point plan to put Georgians first. As part of that plan, he pledges to remove burdensome regulations, cut government red tape and implement common sense workforce development initiatives.”
Similarly, Democrat Stacey Abrams has been awarded the endorsement of the University of Georgia’s The Red & Black.
“From the issues she decides to highlight to her stance on social and economic plans, Abrams makes herself the best governor for the Athens community. With Abrams as governor, Georgia will progress forward with inclusivity and stability that would benefit the entire state.”
