Things are only going to get from from here.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis engaged in a private discussion with Georgia Governor Brian Kemp earlier this week, without divulging the specifics of their conversation. DeSantis, a potential contender for the Republican presidential nomination in 2024, held this meeting at a hotel in Buckhead, Georgia, on Friday.
According to Fox, the purpose of DeSantis’ visit to the region was to participate in a radio talk show hosted by Erick Erickson, where he appeared alongside fellow presidential candidates. Notably, the two governors refrained from discussing any potential endorsements, as indicated by sources familiar with the matter, according to Politico.
In an attempt to gather insights, Fox News Digital contacted both the offices of DeSantis and Kemp for comments regarding the private interaction. Additionally, Kemp had a conversation with former Vice President Mike Pence on Friday, who is also in the running for the Republican nomination.
Kemp is striving to distance himself from the ongoing legal case involving former President Donald Trump in his state. Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis held a press conference on Monday following the indictment of Trump and several others by a grand jury in Fulton County. Willis granted Trump and the other individuals until August 25 noon to surrender to law enforcement, emphasizing her desire for a trial to commence within six months.
In relation to this situation, State Senator Colton Moore wrote a letter to Governor Kemp, asserting the backing of a majority in the state legislature for his endeavor to impeach District Attorney Fani Willis. However, Kemp’s spokesperson, Garrison Douglas, noted that no substantiating evidence had been provided to support this claim, as disclosed to Fox News Digital.
Moore later clarified that the reference to having a legislative majority in both houses, as mentioned in the letter, was not accurate. He emphasized the necessity of his colleagues signing the letter to initiate action, highlighting the public’s desire for tangible results rather than empty political promises.
