For the latest example of the contrast between Stacey Abrams and Brian Kemp, look no further than this weekend’s events.
Abrams visited Atlanta’s DragonCon festival to mingle with authors and take pictures with cosplayers “because nerds vote, too.” Labor Day brought her to union rallies, where the Democrat amplified her call for higher minimum wages for Georgians.
Kemp spent Saturday at dove hunts in rural Georgia and low-key fundraising receptions elsewhere in the state. On Labor Day, the Republican swung by a Labor Day lunch in Thomaston to tout his plans to “keep Georgia agriculture growing.”
Both are planning to intensify their campaigning after Labor Day as they race to seize distracted voters’ attention with summer’s end.
Kemp unveiled a fresh ad Tuesday featuring his wife Marty, and this week’s plans include a cattleman’s lunch and an endorsement announcement on Wednesday. Abrams is gearing up for a next round of visits across the state after a recent swing that focused on economic development.
