Georgia Governor, Atlanta Mayor Clash on Crime, Mask Mandates


GOP and Democrat leaders are finding themselves more and more at odds, especially as of late. Right now, Republicans and Democrats maintain vastly different notions about the leadership styles and policies that are appropriate.

There are a lot of problems that America is facing at this time. Inflation is an issue; soaring crime rates and a ruined southern border remain deeply problematic as well.

Earlier this week, Georgia Republican Governor Brian Kemp clashed with the mayor of Atlanta, Keisha Bottoms; the conflict pertained to various views on COVID mandates and crime rates.
