Cagle, Kemp Spar In Another Debate Ahead Of Next Week's Runoff Election

Jul 16, 2018

Republican candidates for governor Secretary of State Brian Kemp and Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle squared off in a debate Sunday, hosted in Atlanta by WSB-TV.

Earlier Sunday morning, GPB hosted a debate on Political Rewind with Bill Nigut.

Kemp attacked Cagle over a secret recording, in which Cagle said he pushed a bill he considered "bad public policy" to undermine a primary opponent.

Cagle fired back and said Kemp had conspired with former candidate Clay Tippins to record Cagle without his knowledge, and release parts of the recording to the media. 

Kemp and Cagle are locked in a virtual dead heat, with just over a week until the July 24 runoff.

The runoff's winner will face Democrat Stacey Abrams in the Nov. 6 general election.
