Georgia Governor Brian Kemp maintains a commanding lead ahead of his rematch against Democrat Stacey Abrams (D-Ga.).

According to a poll released by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and UGA on Monday, Kemp has a seven-point lead against Abrams, with 51% of respondents favoring Kemp. Abrams only received 44% support. 2% chose Libertarian Shane Hazel and 2.5% remained undecided.

This comes as Abrams has repeatedly questioned both the 2018 election and law enforcement.

“As I’ve pointed out before, I am not a member of the Good Ole’ Boys Club,” Abrams said. “I don’t have 107 sheriffs who want to be able to take Black people off the streets, who want to be able to go without accountability.”

Additionally, Kemp is endorsed by 107 Sheriff’s Departments throughout Georgia.

Stacey Abrams is attacking my record because she doesn’t want to talk about her own: profiting from the Defund the Police movement and supporting dangerous policies like ending cash bail. I’ll continue to stand with law enforcement to keep our families safe. #gapol #GAGovDebate pic.twitter.com/IZ2reqdolY

The governor has touted that he reopened the state when Democrats, like Abrams, called for vaccine mandates and extended school closures.
