Kemps primary could be decisive
Placeholder Image
Two years ago, Secretary of State Brian Kemp began his push to set up an "SEC Primary" for a simple reason: He wanted the world to pay more attention to Georgia and the South in an important presidential election year. "I think for years a lot of people got frustrated that the presidential primary race was over before Georgians ever got to vote," Kemp said. Eventually, he was able to convince colleagues in Arkansas, Alabama, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Texas to join Georgia in holding their presidential primaries on March 1.
