President Donald Trump on Saturday suggested former Rep. Doug Collins (R‑Ga.) primary Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp in the next gubernatorial election.
Collins, who ended up third in a free-for-all race to fill the Senate seat left vacant by the retirement of Sen. Johnny Isakson, joined Trump on stage during a rally in Valdosta on Saturday night.
After calling Collins “one the greatest advocates I’ve ever met in Washington,” the president added, “Doug, you want to run for governor in two years?”
