(PartiallyPolitics.com) – On Sunday, Gov. Brian Kemp (R-Ga.) stated that Republicans should not “look in the rearview mirror” as the 2024 election draws nearer.
During an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Kemp noted that it was important for them to keep their attention “on the future.” He added that if you are looking at the rearview mirror while driving you most likely will run into someone and “that’s not gonna be good.”
He proceeded to make an analogy between the election and a football game, stating that a team would not perform well if it focused on an interception that occurred. Instead, the only way to win was to “focus on the game ahead in the future.”
While Kemp did not call out former President Donald Trump by name, his remarks on Saturday at a private Republican National Committee donor retreat also showed that he believes that the Republicans needed to move on from the 2020 presidential election. Many considered his latest remarks to also be a jab at Trump, who frequently brings up the 2020 presidential election that he lost to President Biden.
Trump announced his presidential bid for 2024 in November of 2022, one week after the midterm elections.
In his latest remarks, Kemp also stressed out that Republicans needed to stay focused and that “The road to the White House is coming through Georgia and two other three states that really in my opinion are going to decide the presidential race.”
