Kemp Urges Voters Not To Be ‘Distracted’ By Trump Case In Georgia: Likely Won’t Go To Trial ‘Before The Election’

 Georgia GOP Governor Brian Kemp urged Republican voters not to get distracted by the criminal prosecution of former President Donald Trump by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, saying that the case is unlikely to go to trial before the 2024 election.

Kemp made the remarks while speaking to CNN’s Kaitlan Collins on “The Source” about the state of the presidential race.

“I would just tell you that six months, eight months ago, I never thought this case would go to trial, before the election,” Kemp said. “And I think most people think that’s the case now.”

“So, as far as I’m concerned, I don’t think voters should get too distracted on all of this and just stay focused on what’s at hand, going into November, and let Judge McAfee make his ruling,” he continued, noting that McAfee was a just that he appointed because he’s a strong constitutionalist.

Kemp also said that the state is working on refining a piece of legislation that would allow the state to oversee district attorneys because some are not following the law.

He said that Republicans should instead be focused on selling the American people their vision for the country and what they stand for, not just what they are against, and cautioned that losing elections can have serious ramifications.

“I think, looking back, I mean, take the border for instance, right now,” he said. “The reason the border is a disaster is because we didn’t win the 2020 election, at the presidential level. We got beat. We lost the election. Therefore, you’re seeing bad policies that have created a disaster, at the border.”

“So, it’s imperative that you win to be able to get into positions, like I’m in, where you can actually govern. And if you look at my re-election campaign, I mean, look, there was plenty of distractions, people trying to talk about this issue or that issue,” he continued. “And we kept telling the people of Georgia, what we’re going to do for them, what our record was, like getting the economy going, coming out of COVID, not backing down to people that were pressuring us not to reopen or shut back down, and to keep our kids in the classroom, and not to defund the police, and go after bad criminal actors, and antifa, and other people that were trying to burn down the City of Atlanta.”


“We didn’t get distracted on these other issues,” he added. “And that’s what we need to do, in the presidential election, in my opinion.”
