Former Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) announced on Monday that he would be challenging incumbent Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp -- and CNN's Gloria Borger said that this primary challenge has former President Donald Trump's fingerprints all over it.
While discussing the battle between Perdue and Kemp, Borger said that it shows that Trump would rather get back at his perceived foes than have a strong and united Republican Party.
"What this tells you about Donald Trump is that he really doesn't care about unity in the Republican Party," she said. "What he cares about is vengeance. and his eyes are set on Kemp. And so he wants to put him out of power."
