THOMASVILLE, Ga. (WTXL) - Brian Kemp, currently the Secretary of State for Georgia is running for governor, and he's making the rounds visiting every county within the state.

Kemp hopes the visits will help him to understand exactly what each community needs so he can work on providing better infrastructure for rural communities.

He wants to cut government regulations and introduce a broad-based "spending cap" so more of the state can see tax-reform.

Kemp says it's time to put Georgians first, ahead of special interests and those who are here illegally.

"Part of that plan to put Georgians first is to stand up for our values when we think about the second amendment, and religious freedom, but also public safety reform, tracking and deporting criminal illegals that are here and stopping street gangs," said Kemp.

If elected, Kemp wants to work with Florida's governor to gain a regional perspective.
