Candidate Comparison

As the 2022 midterm election quickly approaches voters are presented with the decision between incumbent Brian Kemp and Stacey Abrams for Georgia Governor. Kemp is a Republican from Athens who has served as gov- ernor since January 2019. Abrams is a Democrat who served as a Georgia State Representative for 10 years. The midterms also include the U.S. senator race between incumbent Raphael Warnock and Herschel Walker. A Democrat, Warnock has served as U.S. Senator since January 2021 and was elected in a special election runoff. His opponent, Walker, a Heisman trophy winner at the Univer- sity of Georgia and former NFL running back, is a Republican from Wrightsville and has been endorsed by former President Donald J. Trump. Election day Nov. 8 will prove to be eventful as Georgians decide between these candidates and their differing views on education, abortion, gun control, immigration and law enforcement. Many students will be voting for the first time on Nov. 8, and being informed allows one to make the best decision in the voting booth.
