In today’s edition of Swing State Georgia:
Kemp tries to avoid storm-related errors.
A rough fact check on Stacey Abrams.
The probe broadens into GOP election mischief.
For the third day in a row, Gov. Brian Kemp will start his morning at an emergency command center where he’ll be briefed on Hurricane Ian’s latest course. Though Georgia is expected to avoid a direct hit, storm surges, gusty winds and downpours could threaten low-lying areas along the Georgia coast.
The governor declared a state of emergency long before Ian made landfall Thursday in Florida, a preemptive step that follows the approach former Gov. Nathan Deal took in his final years in office.
