Gaetz Threatens Kemp With Primary, Should He Defy Trump's Wishes

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), one of President Donald Trumpís most vocal acolytes, threatened Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) with a primary challenger in 2022 should he not select Trumpís preferred candidate for a soon-to-be-open Senate seat.

It is not clear from where Gaetz, a congressman from Florida, gets the authority to threaten the Georgia governor with a primary.

Kemp wants to pick businesswoman Kelly Loeffler to replace Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-GA), who is retiring at the end of the year. According to Politico, Kemp thinks that Loeffler can help staunch the flow of suburban voters fleeing the party.

Trump, and by extension, Gaetz, wants Kemp to pick Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) instead, a much more diehard MAGA type.

We'll get to see Dipshit Doug Collins in action at the House Judiciary Committee's impeachment hearings in a few more days, in case you're wondering about his Senatorial qualifications.
