New Recording Rocks Georgia Runoff

Georgia Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle’s (R) gubernatorial campaign “was already rocked last month by the release of a secretly recorded conversation in which Cagle said he backed what he called ‘bad public policy’ for political gain. Cagle’s runoff opponent, Secretary of State Brian Kemp (R), released another snippet of that conversation Monday,” the AP reports.

In this 50-second clip, Cagle can be heard candidly discussing the GOP primary’s sharp turn to the right, saying the five-man race came down to “who had the biggest gun, who had the biggest truck and who could be the craziest.”

The runoff is on July 24 and the winner faces Stacey Abrams (D).
