Jones is black Kemp is white. That should confuse the trumpets.

Vernon Jones probably won't win the Republican primary. The race will be entertaining, but full of crazy.

Well sure, but let's be fair here.  Door knobs confuse the trumpets.

Whoever wins the GOP primary in Georgia will be running against Stacy Abrams and good luck with that.

Has she said she's running? I haven't seen or heard anything about it if she has.

I hope she does.

No, she hasn't said it but had no interest in running for Senate and she was most likely a sure thing. She has ambitions that I think lead to a presidential run. Running for POTUS as a governor is a better shot than senator.

Go for it lady. Keep that smart stuff rolling. If I could vote in Georgia I would vote for you.

Is Kemp retiring?

Georgia may as well keep Kemp as Vernon is a pro-Trump Republican: https://en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/Vernon_J​ones

"[Kemp's] failed leadership and unwillingness to fight election integrity left us..."

I really don't know if this was a Freudian slip, or if fighting election integrity is actually a GOP talking point now.

oldernell: Jones is black Kemp is white. That should confuse the trumpets.


Jones doesn't support same sex marriage, supports the federal death penalty, believes in mandatory sentences for drugs, wants charter school vouchers instead of public education, is funded by and loves fracking and votes against environmental regulations, thinks that people and corporations should be allowed to give more to candidates, doesn't support the ACA or any form of federal healthcare, supports pre-emptive strikes against enemies, voted for Bush in 2000 & 2004, donated to the GOP in 2001, wants a permanent repeal of the estate tax, and wants to cut assistance to needy families on welfare.

The GOP should love him, after all, good Georgian plantation owners always have a Sambo in the field, why should the GOP be any different?

Like most Atlantans, I've known Vernon Jones.  Many of my friends have known him socially and professionally.  Even I have 2 Vernon Jones stories, one of which involves him saying "Girl, I already fed you today!"

Vernon Jones only believes in his next scam.  Don't believe anything he claims to have done or believed.  He's become a Republican because he knows they're the biggest marks.

Both contests don't happen at the same time, so there is no conflict. Also the primary will be about fidelity to trump, and dems want that reminder that GOP=trump.

Wow. Gotta admit, the American Nazi Party does have some diversity. They'll let in self-loathing minorities of all religions and skin tones.

For now.

Until they gain power and kill them, of course.

So, a a true, modern, Trump Republican. Makes sense.

Admit it. We've all thought of jumping on that gravy train. Those people are just so dumb and easily separated from their money. Lol

/I know many of us, me included, actually have scruples and would never do that.

Naw, those types of shills get to work in the house as part of their 'reward."  Why they do it as a rule, you get slightly better treatment over your fellow prejudicials and you get to lord it over them.  It makes sense, if you're an amoral piece of steaming shiat.

It doesn't matter whether or not she is on the ballot as a candidate, whomever is running on the GOP's voter obstruction ticket will be running against Stacy Abrams.

My constituents that elected me previously know me all too well, so i can't get re-elected in my congressional district or even at a local level.   Gotta change parties, run at a state level and hope my very white sounding name will get me votes in Rubeville.

That's the thought process.
