Pro-Trump Former Dem Launches Campaign to Unseat GA Gov. Kemp

Democrat-turned-Republican Vernon Jones has officially announced his gubernatorial campaign to defeat Republican Georgia Governor Brian Kemp. Jones endorsed Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign before officially switching to the Republican Party in January.

The Hill reports:

Jones is hoping to capitalize on the incumbent governor’s perceived disloyalty to Trump, who has already vowed to support a primary challenge to Kemp.

“Right now, those of you who feel you have been not listened to, those of you who feel frustration. I feel your pain,” Jones said. “For those of you who feel your voices weren’t heard, for those of you who feel the incumbent governor didn’t fight for you, a new day has dawned.”

Jones has tweeted that he will prioritize voting integrity in Georgia and has vowed to discontinue the use of Dominion Voting machines in the state if elected. The voting machines caused controversy as they caused ballot errors in the state during the 2020 presidential election. In the weeks after the election, Trump continued to claims the election was manipulated by fraud and voter irregularities.

Rudy Giuliani has already voiced his support for Jones gubernatorial campaign.

All Jones is waiting for now is Trump’s endorsement, but will he get it?

  1. I wonder if he’s running as a Republican or Democrat? Back when he supported President Trump he said he wasn’t changing parties?

    1. The article answered that question. “Jones is hoping to capitalize on the incumbent governor’s perceived disloyalty to Trump.” Sometime during 2020 campaign, according to article, Jones endorsed the Trump campaign, then in Jan he switched to being GOP. Sounds very much like demoncrap SOP – and generally successful way to replace a GOP official with a RINO. Maybe, it is just replacing a RINO with a better RINO.

      1. Thank you. Sorry I missed that he changed parties. I get your point about the RINO thing, but the current governor sure messed up. I guess remains to be seen.

    2. Vernon Jones made a public announcement he changed his party last year. He’s running as a Republican.

  2. Gov. Kemp needs to be impeached along with Gov Copper here in NC. It don’t matter what party they are in if they are not for a fair election they have to go. It’s past time something was done to the law braking politicians they need to go to prison for life. I expect it to be done soon or we will vote all out for a big change if we can get a fair election. My trust in the Republican party has been destroyed by the last election. I want something done now because by the next election will be too late so do it NOW.

  3. If all the things that meet the eye are true, then I support Vernon Jones completely. The only hesitancy I have is that Jones is a Negro. And the only reason that causes any hesitation is that many of the Negro race who have touted conservative ideas, have been outright liars.

    SO! Vernon Jones. I don’t know how, but do SOMETHING that will convince any hesitant conservative voters that you really are telling the truth, and you really do believe in America First – no matter what the socialist Democrats say about you.

  4. A “reformed Dem turned GOP to oust a “flawed” GOP governor. Credentials identified as “support” for Trump (last minute?) before turning GOP in Jan. Sounds and smells fishy to me. If – and that is a big IF – Jones was trully disgusted with Dems and lss-than-perfect GOPers, why did he wait so long for his conversion?????

    The answer is simple. “Jones is hoping to capitalize on the incumbent governor’s perceived disloyalty to Trump”, as stated in the article. We have seen this kind of behavior many times. The final result is just another RINO.

    NO THANX!!!!! We need to get rid of RINOs, not increase their numbers in public offices.

  5. Hmmm, I don’t know, so many have jumped the fence ’cause not a chance in hell a DomoCrap wins. Not with the amount of dirty water that has run uneder the bridge.

  6. There really is no reason to support the incumbent Gov. He was about as investigative as a rat on a sinking ship. He claimed to support Trump but waffled his way through nothing. Now much ado about nothing in that state. Has he replaced the vote counter? The Sec of State who owned that election? Removed the Venezuelan roulette voter machines? Etc!!! No? Then what does he do other than try to get along like the good old boy typical rino! Replace him. Talk is cheap and so are very shallow changes that the dim wits will blow through next time as well.

  7. God get ’em, Brian!! I’ll be happy to support your campaign once you get started. God bless you, and may God bless and save America from the socialist/communist Democrats!!

  8. Many false prophets will appear and deceive many. Matthew 24:11. The deception is off the charts in this age we live in.
    Matthew 7:15 Watch out for false prophets, “They come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. By their fruits you will recognize them.”

  9. Jones may be a RINO, just as Reagan MAY have seemed he would have been a RINO. Reagan of course, wasn’t, and I’d bet that Jones won’t be, either.

    Too bad that the current governor didn’t get his state’s voting laws in place BEFORE the special election, as he was urged. That probably is what gave Democrats 2 senators and caused a very expensive 2+ years of Democrat control

  10. Gov. Kemp IS standing for Georgia’s Reformed Voting Laws..
    *** He has done a 180…
    ***AND … he has My VOTE !!!!!
