The president continues to face opposition from those loyal to Trump and the possibility of challenging his position next year.
Republican officials in two very conservative counties recently voted to condemn Governor Brian Kemp and two other senior party leaders, indicating that the governor of Georgia continues to face opposition from people loyal to President Donald J. Trump, as well as challenging Possibility of his position next year.
In Whitfield County, in the northwestern part of the state, Republican officials voted unanimously to convict Kemp, saying he “did not do anything” to help Trump after the November election.
The resolution reads: “Because of Camp’s betrayal of President Trump and his great dissatisfaction with Trump’s Republican base, Camp may eventually lose the Republican governorship, because many Trump supporters promised. Under no circumstances will you vote for him.”
Almost unanimously passed another similar resolution in Murray County in northern Georgia.
The resolution does not have the power to elect elected officials, so party officials say the documents are intended to convey a message to Kemp and other Republican lawmakers that their positions may be at risk.
After refusing to demand changes in state election results angered Trump, Camp faced months of attacks, protests and opposition from party members. Trump encouraged Republicans to take retaliatory action and ordered far-right loyalists to oppose Kemp in the primary election next year.
