Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has joined with former President Donald Trump to endorse former Sen. David Perdue in his Georgia gubernatorial campaign against Gov. Brian Kemp.
The 2008 vice presidential nominee, who is running for Alaska's open House seat, will campaign with Perdue in Savannah, Georgia, on Friday. Trump is also backing Palin in her race and is hoping to oust Kemp for, in Trump's view, not doing enough to investigate alleged voter fraud during the 2020 presidential election.
GEORGIA'S DAVID PERDUE SET TO BE TRUMP'S BIGGEST ENDORSEMENT FACE-PLANT TO DATE
"I believe David is the only candidate who can win the fight against [Stacey] Abrams, and that's why I'm proud to endorse him," Palin said in a statement Wednesday. "David is an America First fighter with a proven record of results, and he will be an outstanding governor of Georgia."

Trump's backing of Perdue has revealed fissures in the Republican Party that stem from fraud claims in the 2020 election. A judge threw out a lawsuit last week that Perdue filed, which claimed fraudulent ballots were counted in Fulton County. Former Vice President Mike Pence has thrown his weight behind incumbent Kemp and will rally with him before the primary next week.
