Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp will defeat Donald Trump-backed challenger, former Sen. David Perdue, CNN projects — a blow to the former President’s efforts to punish Kemp for refusing to overturn the 2020 presidential election results.

He’ll face Democrat Stacey Abrams, who ran unopposed in Tuesday’s primary, in a rematch of their 2018 race, which Abrams narrowly lost.

As election deniers backed by Trump vie for key posts in the Peach State — one of five states holding primaries Tuesday — the results are offering clues about the willingness of Republican voters to spurn the former President’s vanity campaigns and move on from his lies about the 2020 election.

Georgia voters will also decide whether to replace GOP Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, who, like Kemp rebuffed Trump’s election entreaties, with a Trump-backed candidate in Rep. Jody Hice, who continues to falsely claim that Trump would have won Georgia if the election had been “fair.”

Candidates must receive more than 50% of the vote to avoid a runoff.
