Democratic Georgia Lawmaker Breaks Party Ranks & Endorses Trump

by AmericasKeepersAdmin on April 15, 2020

State Representative Vernon Jones, a Democratic Georgia lawmaker, has announced his support for President Donald Trump’s reelection

Vernon Jones received some backlash from Georgia Democrats after announcing his support for President Trump. Vernon is backing Trump in part because he values what he has done with criminal justice reforms and economic policies

“There are a lot of African Americans who clearly see and appreciate he’s doing something that’s never been done before. When you look at the unemployment rates among black Americans before the pandemic, they were at historic lows. That’s just a fact.”
– Georgia State Rep Vernon Jones

Jones is the first Democratic lawmaker in Georgia to endorse Trump. His endorsement was not well meant by some Democratic lawmakers in his state.

“Never has that been clearer than this moment, when he chose to stand with the racist president who has made an all-out assault on black Americans, who has tried to rip away American health care and who has failed our country in its greatest time of need,”
– Sen. Nikema Williams

Gwinnett County Republican Party shared Jones endorsement and asked for individuals to donate to his campaign. In the primary election in June, Jones faces a primary challenge from Rhonda Taylor.
