Brian Kemp is Georgia’s Republican governor.

He strives for economic growth, reforming state government, strengthening rural communities, lowering healthcare costs, and protecting families from violence. He is most known for keeping the unemployment rate in Georgia at an all-time low and creating jobs.

Businesses are thriving under his supervision and political leadership. He’s passionate about reducing human trafficking and is strict on violence and gang activity across the great peach state of Georgia.

Recently, Gov. Kemp has rushed to implement some of the harshest abortion laws in America. Some call it extreme, while others support his actions. He's also fighting to completely condemn and eliminate the practice of abortion from the Georgian healthcare system.

However, some of his measures are being questioned by many Georgians.

Why is governor Kemp controversial?

Governor Brian Kemp signed a few controversial education bills that will dramatically change education and learning for students. These education bills restrict classroom discussions on racism, making it harder for educators to teach about race and racism in the classroom. He believes these measures increase the autonomy and choice of parents to shape and teach their children.

Kemp also encourages and supports the Protect Students First Act, which allows an athletic oversight committee the authority to exclude transgender youth from playing sports.

Governor is everything but passionate about the freedom of speech, especially when that freedom trickles down into classrooms and seeks to find the truth.

Why do Georgians want the governor to resign?

His election bill is arguably his most divisive move, as many view it as explicitly targeting people of color. This controversial legislation requires more identification on the absentee ballot, limits ballot drop boxes, and prohibits offering food and water to those in line to vote.

Gov. Kemp is very conservative in his views, which is reflected in his leadership. However, many constituents find his policies and actions in Georgia too extreme and want him to resign.

Trump vs. DeSantis: Newsom Reveals Who He Sees as the Real Threat!

California Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom targeted the top two contenders for the Republican presidential candidacy in 2024. Newsom is regarded as a rising star in the Democratic Party and a potential presidential candidate. According to him, former President Donald Trump's desire for "vengeance" poses an even greater threat to democracy as compared to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis who is "fundamentally authoritarian". "I've made the point about DeSantis that I think he's functionally authoritarian. I'm worried more, in many respects, about Trumpism, which transcends well beyond his term and time in tenure," Newsom said. He was referring to the former president's frequently expressed threats to exact "revenge" if he returns to the White House on the political foes he holds responsible for the numerous criminal charges brought against him. "The vengeance in Donald Trump's heart right now is more of a threat," said Newsom. Newsom stated that if Trump wins the general election in 2024, he will cooperate with his government to protect Californians' interests, just as he did during the Covid-19 outbreak. "At the end of the day, these are the cards that are dealt. And I want to do the best for the people that I represent, 40 million Americans that happen to live in California," Newsom said. However, DeSantis, the right-wing Republican Florida governor with whom he has regularly disagreed, received the brunt of Newsom's sharpest criticism. He criticized DeSantis' "partisanship"—most recently on show when he turned down Joe Biden's visit to the state in the wake of Hurricane Idalia—and disagreed with his plan to relax lockdowns and outlaw mask requirements. "I don't like the partisanship. And I thought it was demonstrably displayed by what I thought was a very weak exercise by governor DeSantis," Newsom said when asked about the Floridian's snub of Biden.
