Republican Governor Brian Kemp of Georgia could be facing a tighter gubernatorial race than expected.
“Gov. Brian Kemp continues to lead former Sen. David Perdue in the Georgia Republican gubernatorial primary race, but if a runoff were to occur, the race would become much tighter,” according to Breitbart News.
“A poll conducted by Emerson College Polling and the Hill from April 1 to 3, found Kemp held an 11-point lead over Perdue on a full primary ballot, with Kemp receiving 43 percent support compared to Perdue’s 32 percent support,” reports Breitbart News.
“In a hypothetical runoff between Kemp and Perdue, the race becomes significantly closer, with Kemp receiving 44 percent compared to Perdue’s 39 percent, while 16 percent of respondents are undecided,” reports Breitbart.
Perdue campaign spokeswoman Jenni Sweat said that the poll findings meant Kemp was in “serious trouble.”
“An incumbent stuck in the low 40s both on the full ballot and in a head-to-head matchup is the definition of a sinking ship,” said Sweat.
“Kemp realizes he’s in trouble with conservatives and is spending millions attacking Perdue, Sweat continued. “Perdue is in a strong position to win this primary and become Georgia’s next Governor.”
