Herschel Walker endorses Brian Kemp in Georgia governor's race

Herschel Walker endorses Brian Kemp in Georgia governor's race

Director of strategic communication Abigail Collazo said it was "pathetic" that Kemp "has only now suddenly chose to find a conscience as polls are tightening and Georgia voters are making it clear that they reject the kind of hate he and his allies have been spewing around the state". According to one report, Kemp's office purged an estimated 1.5 million registered voters between the 2012 and 2016 elections, while 670,000 voters were purged past year alone. "She had all the celebrities in 2016", Hurt said.

The ACLU announced on Friday that another court had sided against Kemp in a different voting rights case.

The Channel 2 Action News/Atlanta Journal-Constitution poll found that 46.9 percent of the respondents said they support Abrams, compared with 46.7 percent who said they support Kemp.

Ross' injunction requires the state to change its procedures to allow more than 3,100 people prove their citizenship more easily, such as by showing a USA passport or other documentation - and only to a poll manager.

The law is the subject of a lawsuit brought by civil rights groups now working its way through federal courts.

The ruling on absentee ballots stems from a lawsuit by the American Civil Liberties Union and others against Kemp and county registrars.

In her remarks at Thursday's town hall with Abrams, Winfrey told the crowd that she is a registered independent, "because I don't want any party and I don't want any kind of partisan influence telling me what decisions I get to make for myself". "He is the clear choice for a stronger, safer and a more prosperous future".

Kemp was also ordered to issue a news release explaining how those flagged for potential citizenship issues could still vote by proving their citizenship, as well as offering a phone number for them to call with any questions.

"Any voter confusion in our state rests on the shoulders of Stacey Abrams - who is obviously too extreme and dishonest for Georgia", Kemp spokesman Ryan Mahoney said. The state requires identification information on voter registration applications to precisely match information already on file with the Georgia Department of Driver Services or the Social Security Administration.

Secretary of State spokeswoman Candice Broce said election officials are concerned that changing procedures this close to an election is inappropriate but will comply with the ruling.
