Former President Donald Trump will not holding another one of his MAGA rallies prior to Georgia's GOP primaries.
"Even the man who recruited Perdue to run against Kemp — former President Donald Trump — seems to have given his campaign up for dead, according to three Republicans who have spoken to the former president," NBC reported Thursday. "Trump is not planning to make any more personal appearances in Georgia on Perdue’s behalf, having sunk enough of his own political capital in a race that is looking like a lost cause, a fourth source, a person close to the former president, said, speaking on condition of anonymity to talk more freely about Perdue’s prospects."
A Fox News poll released Thursday showed Kemp with 60% of the vote to Perdue's 28%. Since the network's March poll, Kemp gained 10 points while Perdue lost 11.
"It’s a bitter dynamic for Trump, who has made his nationwide endorsements a sign of his influence in the party and part of his implicit case to be the GOP’s presidential nominee in 2024," NBC News reported. "Trump has crusaded against Kemp after the governor refused to help him overturn the 2020 election results in Georgia that helped cost him reelection. Now voters there, many of whom have grown weary of Trump’s involvement in the state GOP, could reject Perdue as well as other statewide candidates he has endorsed."
At a March rally for Perdue, Trump threatened that his MAGA base would boycott the midterms if Kemp was the GOP. At a different rally for Perdue, in September, Trump said Democrat Stacey Abrams might be a better governor than Kemp.
Republican Lt. Gov Geoff Duncan offered his thoughts on the situation.
“At the end of the day, Donald Trump doesn’t care about David Perdue winning. He just cared about Brian Kemp losing,” Duncan said. “And that was a very shallow attempt at trying to unseat a perfectly fit conservative governor.”
Trump has openly voiced his fears he will be branded with a "humiliating experience" if Perdue fails to unseat Kemp.
Kemp, for his part, thinks he can beat Abrams even without Trump's support.
"I didn't get in the race not to win in November," Kemp told NBC News.

Mormons should defend democracy and condemn racism, a church leader argued in a recent speech.
The Salt Lake Tribune reports, "In the wake of a deadly racist attack in Buffalo, President Dallin H. Oaks urged Latter-day Saints to condemn racism and 'avoid extreme or polarizing positions and teachings that undermine the U.S. Constitution.'”
Oaks, a former Utah Supreme Court justice, is the first counselor in the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
“In condemning and working against racism, we encourage our students, our teachers, and all our members to avoid extreme or polarizing positions and teachings that undermine the U.S. Constitution and other core institutions,” Oaks said. “[The Constitution’s] inspired principles, including the freedoms of speech and religion and its authorized amendments, have allowed subsequent generations to continue to improve and strengthen the rights of all of its citizens.”
He also urged "fair treatment" for members of the LGBTQ community.
“Individuals or groups who do not treat our LGBTQ members with empathy and charity are not aligned with the teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ,” Elder Gilbert said. “At the same time, ignoring God’s laws has never been the Savior’s pattern for showing love. Remember, Jesus asked us to love God first.”

A former SpaceX flight attendant is alleging that while on Elon Musk's Gulfstream G650ER, Musk exposed himself to her and then offered to give her a horse in exchange for sexual favors.
During the incident, which Musk's accuser states took place in a private cabin on the aircraft en route to London in 2016, Musk rubbed the woman's leg and pleaded for a sexual massage, which she firmly declined. The details of the offense were laid out in a signed declaration, and Musk threw $250,000 at the problem in 2018, hoping it would all go away. But, unfortunately for him, the internet is forever.
In emails and other documentation obtained by Insider, the woman worked as a contracted member of the SpaceX cabin crew and, shortly after taking the position, was encouraged by Musk to also become a licensed masseuse for the sole purpose of giving him massages while onboard. It was during one of these massages that Musk is said to have asked her to "do more." After entering into a private cabin on the aircraft, the woman states that she was met by a fully naked Musk covered only by a sheet laid over his privates, which was later moved to expose his erect penis.
After being asked by Insider to explain himself, Musk reportedly asked for more time to craft his response and then returned with the following:
"If I were inclined to engage in sexual harassment, this is unlikely to be the first time in my entire 30-year career that it comes to light." Musk then referred to the claim as a "politically motivated hit piece," according to Insider.
The flight attendant, who is choosing to remain anonymous, told a friend that professional opportunities took a dive after refusing Musk's proposition. In 2018, assuming her lack of work was linked to turning Musk down, she hired an employment lawyer and human resources was contacted. Rather than go to court, Musk offered a severance agreement amounting to $250,000 and made the woman promise not to pursue the matter further. The woman's friend, whose intel was included in the signed declaration against Musk, decided to speak up about the incident now and she herself is a survivor of sexual assault.
"I absolutely felt a responsibility to come forward with it, especially now," the accuser's friend said to Insider. "He is the richest man in the world. Someone with that level of power causing that kind of harm and then throwing some money at the situation, that's not accountability."
According to Pet Rogue Science, the cost of a horse ranges from $100 – $10,000, but the most expensive breeds such as an Arabian or Thoroughbred can run almost exactly $250,000.
