Brian Kemp in 2022’s Republican primary for governor, according to reports by multiple news outlets Sunday, setting up a heated clash while Democrat Stacey Abrams is likely to await the winner. Perdue’s plans were first confirmed Sunday by Politico. He’s been encouraged publicly by former President Donald Trump and has been flirting with running for governor for months. Supporters of the 71-year-old former senator, who lost his seat to Democrat Jon Ossoff in a runoff in January, say they believe Perdue can beat Abrams while Kemp can’t. “Perdue can bring together the Trump base and those Republicans, independents, and moderate Democrats who will find Abrams too radical,” former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich wrote on Nov. 12. “Perdue is the one candidate who can defeat Abrams.” But Kemp is promising an all-out brawl as he tries to win a second term, with Kemp spokesperson Cody Hall saying Perdue is running only to “soothe his own bruised ego” over his loss to Ossoff. “The man who lost Republicans the...

They were imposed as the omicron variant exploded in the region,...
    Washington (CNN)Former GOP Sen. David Perdue plans to announce Monday that he's mounting a primary challenge against Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, a move that will pit the ally of former President Donald Trump against the incumbent Republican governor and set up an intra-party fight in one of the nation's closely watched political battlegrounds, according to multiple reports.

Jon Ossoff in a key runoff race in January, an embarrassing loss for Republicans, who lost the Senate after losing both Georgia seats.CNN has previously reported that Trump recently urged Perdue to run against Kemp, who resisted the former President's demands to overturn his 2020 loss in Georgia to then-Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.The New York Times and other outlets, following Politico, on Sunday reported Perdue's plan to announce his candidacy.CNN has reached out to Perdue's advisers, who would not comment on whether Perdue would launch a 2022 gubernatorial campaignRead MoreThe two Georgia Republicans' camps have already started...

    Oakland A’s bench coach Ryan Christenson will join manager Bob Melvin’s coaching staff as bench coach for the San Diego Padres, according to reports. Christenson had served as the A’s bench coach since 2018 next to Melvin. Christenson has spent the majority of his playing and coaching career with the A’s, who drafted him out of Pepperdine University in the 1995 MLB draft’s 10th round and played six seasons with the organization, including four with the big league team as an outfielder. Christenson will be crossed off the list of potential managers to replace Melvin, who left his post as A’s manager after 11 seasons to lead the budding Padres team. Still potentially in play as in-house options to manage the A’s in 2022 include Mark Kotsay, who has interviewed for vacant managerial positions around the league in past years.
