Republicans fret Trump 'tension' in Georgia endangers 2022 ticket

Top Georgia Republicans fear infighting stoked by former President Donald Trump is poised to upend party efforts to defend the governor’s mansion and recapture a crucial Senate seat.

As Trump ally Herschel Walker moves toward a Senate bid that would pair him with Gov. Brian Kemp, a foe of the former president, at the top of the ticket, Republicans worry that the party is on track to field a divided 2022 slate. Walker has publicly chastised Kemp over his handling of the 2020 election, echoing Trump’s complaints — criticism that the governor rejects. Those differences could make working together near impossible if both win their primaries.

Republicans worry that the schism would open the door to a Democratic takeover of the governor’s mansion and dash hopes of ousting incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock, a dynamic Democrat who many of them believe is underestimated outside of Georgia.
