GA Gov.

Brian Kemp and GA Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger defeated the Trump-backed GOP candidates in the May 24 GA primary races.

Since his election loss in 2020, Trump has attempted to cast himself as a Republican kingmaker.

Kemp's double-digit win over Trump-endorsed David Perdue seems to indicate otherwise.

This was the biggest political fight of the midterms for Donald Trump and he lost it by double digits, Mike Murphy, GOP Operative, via Yahoo News.

Governor Kemp has proven that a conservative with a strong record who is not afraid to square off against Trump can not only fend off the Donald, , Mike Murphy, GOP Operative, via Yahoo News.

... but can actually beat the former president quite badly, Mike Murphy, GOP Operative, via Yahoo News.

The GA races are thought to be especially contentious for Trump as it was one of the historically Republican states that turned for President Joe Biden in 2020.

As recently as March, Trump has referred to Kemp as a "turncoat," a "coward" and "a complete and total disaster.".

In light of Kemp's sweeping win, analysts are commending him for staying out of the fray with Trump.

Kemp never swung back at Trump.

You know it had to kill him inside, but the discipline paid off, Brian Robinson, GA GOP Political Operative, via Yahoo News.

Gov.

Kemp will face Democratic candidate Stacey Abrams in the election this fall.

GA Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger became known nationally in 2020 after a phone call with Trump was leaked.

During the call, Trump seemed to pressure Raffensperger to "find" the number of votes necessary to overturn Biden's win.

Raffensperger resisted the pressure.

He attributed his win on May 24 to Republican voters who had come "back home."

DeSantis' Law Barring Critical Race Theory To Take Effect in Florida

DeSantis' Law, Barring Critical Race Theory, To Take Effect in Florida. ABC News reports Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has seemingly succeeded in his efforts to quell race education in the state. The Stop WOKE Act will ban any training focused on diversity or race in education and the workplace. The act passed easily through the state's GOP-heavy legislature. Soon after, a federal judge declined to block it. The law will go into effect on July 1. Those in favor of the Stop WOKE Act are against the discipline of critical race theory in education. WOKE is an acronym for "Wrongs to Our Kids and Employees.". Critical race theory is the study of racism and how it has shaped the lives of non-white citizens of the United States. In recent memory, it has been a talking point for conservatives. As he signed the bill into law, DeSantis spoke of defending Florida from the woke agenda. In Florida, we will not let the far-left woke agenda take over our schools and workplaces. , Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, via ABC News
