The 2022 Georgia gubernatorial election took place on November 8, 2022 to elect the governor of Georgia. Incumbent Republican governor Brian Kemp won re-election to a second term against Democratic nominee Stacey Abrams. Abrams conceded on election night.[1] The primary occurred on May 24, 2022.[2]

Incumbent Republican governor Brian Kemp ran for re-election and was endorsed by former Vice President Mike Pence. He faced a primary challenge from former U.S. Senator David Perdue, who was endorsed by former President Donald Trump after Kemp refused to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election in Georgia.[3]

Stacey Abrams, the former Minority Leader of the Georgia House of Representatives and founder of Fair Fight Action who was narrowly defeated by Kemp in the 2018 gubernatorial election, was once again the Democratic nominee for the governorship. This was Georgia's first gubernatorial rematch since 1950.[4]

Libertarian Shane T. Hazel, the Libertarian nominee for U.S. Senate in 2020, also declared he would run.[5] This race was one of six Republican-held governorships up for election in 2022 in a state carried by Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential election.

Despite Kemp's narrow 55,000 vote victory in 2018, which was Georgia's closest gubernatorial election since 1966, he went on to win by 300,000 votes - the largest raw vote victory for a Georgia governor since 2006. Kemp ended up winning by 7.5%. The race was seen as a potential benefit to Herschel Walker, who ran in the concurrent Senate race, as it was speculated Kemp's strong performance could help Walker avoid a runoff. He vastly underperformed Kemp however, and will face a December 6 runoff election.

Republican primary

Incumbent Governor Brian Kemp faced criticism from former President Donald Trump for his refusal to overturn the results of the 2020 United States presidential election. Kemp was booed at the Georgia Republican Convention in June 2021,[6] and in December former Senator David Perdue announced a primary challenge to Kemp, and was promptly endorsed by Trump. Initial polling showed a competitive race, however Kemp significantly outraised his opponent and signed conservative legislation such as permitless carry of firearms and a temporary suspension of the gas tax that shored up his position among voters, and on election day, he won by over 50 points, a margin far larger than predicted.[7][8][9]
