With a gubernatorial nomination in hand, Republican Brian Kemp has begun sharpening his approach on a few key issues. Call them course corrections, if you prefer.
Let’s start with voting machines. The secretary of state has long said he wants to replace Georgia’s outdated electronic voting system and that he’s open to paper ballots. He launched a review of new voting systems back in April and by June hardened his support for replacing the system with one that uses paper for verification.
But that stance is getting new attention as he faces a lawsuit demanding the state immediately switch to paper ballots.
