Nashville, Ga. (WALB) - Gov. Brian Kemp covered many topics Thursday such as the freedom to farm act, the constitutional carry law, the gas tax cut, and much more. It’s not every day a governor visits rural Georgia. People from South Georgia came out in support of Gov. Kemp in his campaign.

Emilee Stone is a 21-year-old Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College (ABAC) student who studies political science. She says she thinks it’s important for people to come to events like this to get educated on who they are voting for.

Other supporters say they are happy the governor stuck to his initial plans from when he was first elected.

“You know he’s protecting the family farm. He’s given our teachers pay raises to help with education. He kept our stay open during COVID and the gas tax relief has been huge so I mean he’s just a good guy and he’s doing everything he said he was going to do and we’re going to support him again,” Jaclyn Ford, of Alapaha, said.

People I spoke to in Nashville say politicians campaigning here will help drive more people to take action in matters impacting them.

Gov. Kemp ended his bus tour at Parker’s Gun Shop in Pearson for his final meet and greet in south Georgia.
