After more than a year of vendettas against Georgia state Republican officials, all supporters of former President Trump failed to unseat the state incumbents on Tuesday. Governor Brian Kemp beat his Trump-backed challenger by more than 50 points and even Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, who wrote a book about Trump’s attempt to overturn the 2020 Georgia election, won outright to avoid a runoff.
