Kemp Announces Campaign Staff, Grassroots Leaders for 2022 Re-Election Campaign

It was not an unexpected announcement, but Tuesday’s announcement made it official: Governor Brian Kemp is running for re-election in 2022.

Baxley educator Kandiss Taylor and former Democrat and former state representative Vernon Jones both announced earlier this year that they plan to square off against Kemp in the Republican primary. Libertarian Shane Hazel made his announcement late last year.

The Kemp for Governor campaign officially rolled out its network of grassroots leaders across all 159 counties in Georgia as well as initial staff in their official announcement.

“Team Kemp has been hard at work putting together a team that will win in 2022,” said Bobby Saparow, Campaign Manager. “Brian Kemp has a strong, conservative record of fighting for life, standing up for law enforcement, cutting taxes, protecting lives and livelihoods against the COVID-19 pandemic, and defending election integrity. With grassroots leaders across every county in the state standing with Governor Kemp, it’s clear his record is one Georgians support, and we look forward to hitting the campaign trail in the coming months to build on our momentum and continue fighting to put hardworking Georgians first.”
