ATLANTA – Today, Democratic nominee for Governor, Stacey Abrams, released the following statement after Brian Kemp admitting he is “not too worried” about businesses and events such as Music Midtown leaving Georgia:
“Unlike my opponent, I care about whether or not folks stay and keep their business in Georgia. Our state is set to lose millions as a result of Brian Kemp’s dangerous and extreme agenda. Music Midtown is not the first event Kemp has cost our state with his recklessness. But if Kemp continues to put his political ambitions ahead of Georgians’ lives and livelihoods, it may not be the last either.
As governor, it will be my priority to keep jobs and opportunities here in Georgia. Brian Kemp may not care, but I do.”
As a result of Brian Kemp’s extreme and dangerous agenda on guns, Georgia is set to lose $50 million in economic investment from the loss of Music Midtown. This comes after Kemp already “mocked” film industry leaders concerned about his abortion ban and cost the state the All-Star Game by pushing an anti-voter law fueled by election conspiracy theories.
