Brian Kemp was elected Governor of Georgia on November 6, 2018.

Brian was raised in Athens. He went to Clarke Central High School and learned the value of hard work from legendary football coach Billy Henderson. The Gladiators won the State Championship because they believed the impossible was possible. Coach was right –with enough heart and hard work –“It can be done.”

Kemp worked his way through college. After graduating from UGA, he went to work in construction full time and started his first business with just a shovel and a pick-up truck. Brian woke up before dawn –digging ditches, pouring concrete, and hammering nails. Along the way, he started other companies, created jobs, and provided economic opportunities for Georgia families and communities.

Twenty-four years ago, Brian married his childhood friend Marty. The couple raised their three daughters to love God, work hard, and serve others. Brian is running for governor to make sure that all Georgia families are safe and prosperous.

Brian ran for public office because he was fed up with government overreach. In the State Senate, he cut taxes, slashed regulations, and prioritized public safety. As Secretary of State, he streamlined government, safeguarded elections, and fought for our values.
