Abrams, Kemp To Host Campaign Events With Warren, Trump Jr.

Oct 9, 2018

The two candidates competing to become Georgia’s next governor will both receive campaign help from out of state on Tuesday.

 

Democrat Stacey Abrams will host an event at Clayton State University featuring U.S. senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Massachusetts congressional candidate Ayanna Pressley.

 

Pressley grabbed national headlines when she upset 10-term incumbent Michael Capuano in the democratic primary last month.

Running unopposed, Pressley is set to become the first black congresswoman to represent her state.

 

Abrams hopes to break a similar barrier as the first black woman to serve as governor in the U.S.

As for Republican gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp, he’ll be in Athens with Donald Trump Jr. for a fundraiser at the Classic Center.

President Donald Trump endorsed Kemp during the republican primary to help him defeat Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle in a runoff this summer.

 

 

Tuesday, Oct. 9, is the last day for voters to register for next month's midterm elections.

 

Early voting begins next Monday, Oct. 15.

 

You can register to vote or check your voter status at the secretary of state's website.
