A top Democrat in Georgia has chosen to shun his party’s gubernatorial nominee, Stacey Abrams, and instead throw his support behind incumbent Republican Gov. Brian Kemp and the Republican candidate for lieutenant governor, Burt Jones. Kwanza Hall, the former Democratic candidate  for lieutenant governor who lost in a runoff to the current Democratic lieutenant governor nominee, Charlie Bailey, made his announcement Friday, citing Kemp’s ability to make “tough decisions” in “unprecedented circumstances,” and Jones’ plans to reduce crime and improve the state’s education system.
