"Governor Kemp and his family are looking forward to being with hardworking Georgians in Forsyth County,” stated Tate Mitchell, the press secretary for Kemp’s reelection campaign. “Our campaign is laser-focused on building the resources and support necessary to win in November and stop the disastrous Biden-Abrams agenda from taking hold in Georgia."

Melissa Clink, the chairperson of the Forsyth County Democrats and 6th Congressional District Chair, told NewsBreak her group is working on bringing Kemp’s opponent, Stacey Abrams, to Forsyth County for a campaign event.

Election day is Tuesday, November 8. Advance voting runs October 17 through November 4 in Forsyth County.
