This could blow up in his face.
GON has not endorsed Brian Kemp for Agriculture Commissioner in the Tuesday, August 8 run-off election.
A mailer is being circulated indicating that GON has endorsed Brian Kemp.
GON had never seen the flyer until a reader faxed it to GON on the morning of August 4. Our only comments on this or any other race are published in the GON July issue.
If the Kemp campaign took those comments as an endorsement, they did so without our knowledge and in error.
GON does believe the Republican Party has fielded quality candidates for the post of Georgia Agricultural Commissioner and does plan to endorse either Brian Kemp or Gary Black in their campaign against current commissioner Tommy Irvin this fall. If the Kemp campaign took that information as an endorsement, it was premature.
By the way, you know the nice thing about this story? I’ve always wonder what the hell those “GON” stickers were on the back of all the trucks I pass in Macon. Now I know!
