Upcoming Georgia House member and ardent Brian Kem,p for governor supporter Colton Moore said he has taken one step to back his choice.

Rep. Colton Moore said, "One California Democrat and vigilant Stacey Abrams supporter also goes by the name of Brian Kemp. Up until last Tuesday, his website BrianKemp.com, was forwarding to StaceyAbrams.com and was used to 'troll' the campaign of the Georgia Republican and gubernatorial nominee.


“As Georgia’s first and only state representative-elect to endorse Brian Kemp after the Georgia primaries, I found it difficult to stand by and watch Democrats abuse our future governor’s campaign like this.

After seeing this other Brian Kemp and Abrams’ supporters rent a plane with a sign in tow at the UGA football game that read 'Brian Kemp says Go Vols!,' I had had enough.”

He said he and Secretary of State Kemp are both graduates from the University of Georgia. He said, "I made it clear that my fellow Georgia Bulldog and future governor should now reap the benefits of those looking to donate and learn more about the real candidate named Brian Kemp. Previously, these supporters were confused and manipulated by this political hack.

“I am very happy to contribute to Brian Kemp’s campaign in this extraordinarily unique way. BrianKemp.com has been redirected to Stacey Abrams’ website for nearly six months and for us to take it back from her and her Democrats gives Georgia Republicans and myself great satisfaction.”

To secure the domain name, Rep.-Elect Moore said he turned to Forbes' domain expert and CEO at VPN.com, Michael Gargiulo, to broker and facilitate the domain name acquisition. He said the exact price is under a non-disclosure agreement and that he used personal funds to acquire the domain name.

Rep.-Elect Moore will be sworn in as the youngest representative ever for Georgia’s 1st District on Jan. 14.

He said he plans to continue stumping for Brian Kemp across the state of Georgia through the November election. He said Senator Jeff Mullis has extended an invitation to him to be the honorary host of Secretary Brian Kemp and his statewide bus tour on Oct. 20.
