ATLANTA (AP) — President Donald Trump and former President Barack Obama are scheduled to come to Georgia in the closing days of Georgia’s hotly contested governor’s election.
Obama will campaign with Democrat Stacey Abrams and other Democrats at Morehouse College on Friday in Atlanta.
A White House official confirms Trump will be in Georgia on Sunday to campaign for Republican Brian Kemp. The time and location have not been announced. It’s part of a final nationwide blitz for Trump ahead of the midterms.
Kemp and Abrams are locked in a tight race that offers a stark choice in a state accustomed to business-minded, centrist governors.
