On Monday, I had the chance to sit down and talk to Secretary of State Brian Kemp about some of the legislation he is backing, such as online voter verification and making it easier for military and Georgia residents living outside the state or country to vote in election. We also discussed some ideas to lower regulatory costs for business.
Kemp was appointed at the end of year by Gov. Sonny Perdue after Karen Handel decided to focus her efforts full-time on her bid for Governor. He is running in the GOP primary for Secretary of State (against Doug McGinnitie). You may recall that Kemp was appointed after State Rep. Jim Cole, Perdue’s first choice, decided to take the Atheletic Director job at Mercer.

Next week, I’ll be chatting with Rep. Paul Broun, who may or may not have been sworn into office.
