Regional leaders, including Roberts, Powell and Rynders, attend Kemp’s Albany luncheon
(Albany)— House Speaker David Ralston and Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle were among the key supporters attending a luncheon event in honor of Republican State House candidate Karen Kemp.
More than 100 attendees joined Cagle, Ralston and Kemp at Albany’s Doublegate Country Club this afternoon. Cagle’s attendance was a surprise for Kemp and her guests.
“This is an important race for Georgia,” Cagle said. “We need Karen in the Legislature.”
Ralston’s presence underscored Cagle’s remarks about the overall importance of Kemp’s candidacy.
“We have great candidates across Georgia, and Karen Kemp is at the top of that list,” Ralston said. “It is important for Albany and South Georgia that you get Karen in the
House. If you want a table at redistricting coming up… you need Karen working for you.”
Kemp expressed her appreciation for the campaign support from two of the leading Republican figures in the state.
“I am so very grateful to the Speaker for coming all the way down from Blue Ridge to help us today.” Kemp said. “I will continue to fight to keep the jobs we have and to grow small businesses so they can hire once again.”
Other prominent event attendees included Sen. Dickey Roberts, Rep. Jay Powell and Rep. Ed Rynders.
