[Ed. – The cost of disloyalty]
Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp was greeted with boos from the crowd as he was introduced at the state GOP convention, a reminder from avid supporters of former President Donald Trump that refusing to take claims of widespread voter fraud seriously could impact the governor’s reelection chances in 2022.

Georgia’s election integrity law was passed by GOP lawmakers following concerns in the 2020 election about the validity of casted votes, specifically those coming from mail-in ballots. The law requires identification to vote, extends the early voting period, ensures a ballot drop box will be available in every county and bars partisan groups from passing out food and water to voters at the polls.
