Rumors have been swirling in Georgia and Washington D.C. that President Donald Trump would make an endorsement in the hotly-contested Republican gubernatorial primary runoff, especially since early voting starts next week. Not true, as told to this writer by reliable sources close to the White House.
While this is disappointing to candidates Casey Cagle and Brian Kemp, the word is that — in spite of the president’s recent successful endorsement in the South Carolina GOP runoff to help longtime Trump loyalist Gov. Henry McMaster — there will be a policy of no endorsements in GOP primaries to include Georgia.
Supporters of both gubernatorial candidates for weeks have been pitching their man to the White House for a public blessing in the July 24th runoff, but their efforts have fallen flat.
