It’s almost showtime for the 2022 mid-term election and former President Donald J. Trump is going all-in on 7 primary candidates in Georgia. The Peach State will get will be a good indicator of what Trump’s coattails still bring in the political process for those running for office.
Mr. Trump is heading to the Peach State Saturday to campaign at a rally for the seven candidates he has endorsed in Republican primary races ahead of the state’s May 24 election.
The rally will take place at Banks County Dragway in Commerce, Georgia, which is situated in a solidly red county in northeast Georgia that Trump won by nearly 60 points in 2020.
Former Sen. David Perdue (R-GA), who is hoping to unseat Gov. Brian Kemp (R), will speak at the event, as will Senate candidate Herschel Walker, former state Rep. Vernon Jones, and several other guests.
Kemp has become one of Trump’s most sought-after targets since the 2020 election, which Trump narrowly lost — “by a whisker,” as Trump says — after two recounts in the closest race of any state in 2020.

Trump, who endorsed Perdue in December almost immediately after Perdue launched his campaign, has repeatedly charged that the 2020 election in Georgia was “stolen” and “rigged” and has taken aim at Kemp for leading a state in which he believes an unfair and fraud-ridden voting process played out.
The former president is now betting heavily on Perdue, persistently putting out public statements in support of his candidacy and throwing his weight behind other Georgia candidates who align with his mission to overthrow Kemp and Kemp allies.
Trump’s son Donald Trump Jr. appeared on the campaign trail on behalf of Perdue at the beginning of the month, and the former president held a high-dollar fundraiser for Perdue at Mar-a-Lago last week, from which Perdue’s campaign said it expected to raise more than half a million dollars.

Walker, a former University of Georgia football star and Heisman Trophy winner, appears easily positioned in polls to win his Senate primary race. Walker is also endorsed by Trump and is gearing up for a competitive and expensive general election battle with incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA).
As for Jones, the avid Trump supporter who officially converted from Democrat to Republican in 2021 initially planned to run in the gubernatorial primary against Perdue and Kemp.
Trump was successful, however, in convincing Jones to drop out of that race and instead jump into a congressional race, a move that was expected to consolidate support behind Perdue.
