Kemp Backers in Ga. GOP Form ‘Stop Stacey’ Committee, but 2022 Prospects Still Uncertain

'We will do whatever it takes to expose Stacey Abrams’ radical network, highlight her dangerous agenda and ultimately defeat her...'

With a crushing Senate defeat not even a month behind them, Georgia Republicans linked to Gov. Brian Kemp and former Sen. Kelly Loeffler already have their sights set on the next election: a possible rematch between Kemp and radical Democrat Stacey Abrams.

Facing the prospect of a 2018 repeat in which the deck is now stacked in Abrams’ favor, an independent committee called “Stop Stacey” announced Monday it was planning to form in anticipation of Abrams’ announcement.

“We will do whatever it takes to expose Stacey Abrams’ radical network, highlight her dangerous agenda and ultimately defeat her—and her left-wing candidates—at the ballot box,” said Jeremy Brand, a senior strategist with the group, according to the Atlanta Journal–Constitution. “There is no time to waste: We must stand up, fight back and stop Stacey.”

Even after having failed in her 2018 gubernatorial bid—which she refused to concede to Kemp—Abrams succeeded in waging a lawsuit with powerful Democrat lawyers to force unconstitutional changes to the election laws.

As a result of the loosened laws regarding matters like mail-in voting and signature matching, massive fraud was suspected in blue areas such as the counties surrounding Atlanta and Savannah.

President Donald Trump maintained vigorously that he had won the state, although Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger refused to fully examine the evidence of vote fraud and refused to make paper ballots and other records available for discovery.

Similarly, disaster struck in the state’s two Senate races following a Jan. 5 runoff race. The same election rules applied that were in place during the Nov. 3 presidential election.

The candidates were once again neck and neck going into the wee hours, when inexplicably late returns from blue precincts pushed Democrats Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff into the lead.

If Abrams were to run next year, it would coincide with another election for Warnock, whose race was a special election to fill the seat of retired Sen. Johnny Isakson. Kemp had appointed Loeffler to fill it on an interim basis, but it will come open again next year.

Abrams, who had personally recruited Warnock to run, would likely campaign in tandem with him.

Despite the many ethics questions that surround Abrams’s election practices, leftist media have heralded her as a transformative leader, raising her stock aplenty even without a personal victory to her name beyond the state legislature.

On the very day that the “Stop Stacey” committee was announced, Norwegian officials announced that Abrams had been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize.

Meanwhile, intra-party infighting within the GOP that resulted from Republican officials’ failure to push back against Abrams last time around will likely continue to take a heavy toll, creating a major hurdle even before the November 2022 election.

Trump has vocally pledged to defeat Kemp, whom he blamed for his embarrassing defeat and perceived betrayal following the 2020 election.

Although Kemp insisted he had very little statutory authority in matters of administering and auditing the vote, he declined to call the state legislature back into session to address it.

Former GOP Rep. Doug Collins, who had been a major Trump ally in Congress before running against Loeffler and Warnock last year, might also be eyeing the governor’s mansion, posing the threat of another bloody primary brawl.

The announcement for the “Stop Stacey” committee did not make clear how, specifically, it intended to earmark its funds—including whether they might be used to prop up Kemp in the primary rather than attack Abrams—or whether Kemp would take any prescriptive measures to prevent further ballot abuse.
