Trump to headline rally in NE Georgia later this month

By Jonathan O'Brien Anchor/Reporter

Donald Trump will travel to Georgia later this month to stump for Republican candidates he's backing in the upcoming election. 

The former president, known for drawing large crowds during campaign stops, will headline the March 26, 7 p.m. rally at the Banks County Dragway in Commerce. 

The event is likely aimed at boosting the standing of Trump-backed candidates, including former U.S. Senator David Perdue. 

Recent polls showed Perdue trailing incumbent Gov. Brian Kemp by nine points. 

"I'm proud to have President Donald Trump's endorsement and look forward to welcoming him back to Georgia to rally support for our campaign," gubernatorial candidate David Perdue said in a Friday press release. 

The rally will mark the first time the former president has held such an event in Georgia since September of 2021. His eldest son, Donald Trump Jr. was in the Peach State on Monday to campaign for Perdue. 

Trump has endorsed other high-profile Georgia candidates, including Rep. Jody Hice for Secretary of State, State Sen. Burt Jones for Lieutenant Governor and Vernon Jones's bid for the 10th Congressional District.
