Brian Kemp's Team Files Paperwork Revealing 'National' Ambitions

Linkedin Share

Donald Trump seemed to truly believe that his early and emphatic 2024 campaign announcement would be enough to keep his potential Republican challengers at bay, but this appears not to be the case.

In fact, Trump’s enthusiasm seemed to act as an agent of relief for many prominent members of the GOP who may have higher aspirations, as it allowed them to step back, catch their breath, and let the nation react to the former President’s announcement before diving in themselves.

And now, just days after Trump’s big day, Georgia Governor, (and Governor-elect), Brian Kemp seems to be ramping up for something rather seismic as well.

Republican Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp has filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) to create a Political Action Committee (PAC).

Axios reported Sunday the governor initiated the process to create Hardworking Americans Inc., which will “allow the Republican to boost his national profile” as a possible signal for a U.S. Senate run or even a 2024 run.

“Kemp’s unique success defeating a Trump-backed opponent in a primary and a Democrat in a key battleground has made him something of a case study for Republicans. It’s also paved the way for speculation about his future national ambitions,” Axios noted.

“A federal PAC allows Kemp to influence races across the country and donate money to other candidates, including in Republican primaries,” it added.

So, what could Kemp be up to?

Should Kemp decide to go federal with his profile, he will likely run for U.S. Senate in 2026 when Democrat John Ossoff faces reelection. Kemp has given no indication of running for president in 2024.

Kemp and Trump have been butting heads as of late, after the Georgia Governor was unwilling to entertain the former President’s requests regarding what he felt was a “rigged” election in 2020.
