Just a day after Secretary of State Brian Kemp won a landslide Republican run-off victory to become the party’s gubernatorial nominee, the Republican Governors Association launched a media wave against Democratic nominee Stacey Abrams, the former state House Minority Leader.
The ad returns to previous themes that have worked for Republicans in Georgia elections: tying the Democratic candidate to Nancy Pelosi and Hillary Clinton. The message claims that Abrams’ campaign is funded with money Nancy Pelosi’s California “friends” raise for her, and then moves to a video of Hillary Clinton, taped back in May immediately after Ms. Abrams won the party nomination, expressing her joy at the electoral result and pledging to do whatever she can for the new nominee in the ensuing campaign. It appears Georgians are in for a very long gubernatorial contest.
