( – On Monday, Former Georgia Lieutenant Governor Geoff Duncan, who served under Governor Brian Kemp — both Republicans — from 2019 to 2023, announced his intention to support President Joe Biden in the upcoming Presidential elections.

In an op-ed for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Duncan claimed the Republican Party wouldn’t be able to “rebuild” until it moved from the “Trump era,” claiming that since it hadn’t it left him a conservative Republican with “no choice but to pull the lever for Biden.”

Duncan added that while he would be backing Biden, Republicans should “work to elect GOP congressional majorities” that would block Biden’s legislative agenda in his second term, a move that would offer “a check and balance.”

The former Lieutenant Governor claimed former President Trump had “disqualified” himself as a feasible GOP Presidential nominee because of his “conduct and… character,” using the example that Trump “fanned the flames” of baseless conspiracy theories which ultimately led to the January 6 riot on the Capitol in 2021.

Duncan shared his disappointment at the amount of Republicans “fall[ing] in line behind” the former President, including Trump’s “fiercest detractors.” Among Trump’s fiercest detractors, Duncan mentioned Mitch McConnell, Senate Minority Leader, U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr, and New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu.

Barr garnered mixed responses when, in a recent interview, he vowed to support the “Republican ticket.”

The Georgia Republican stated that “mentality” was “dead wrong.”

In his op-ed, Duncan also claimed many of Trump’s reluctant supporters would point to Trump’s successes in his first term, referencing tax cuts and the appointment of three conservative justices to the Supreme Court, while deriding the chaos that grips the nation under Biden, like the anti-Israel campus protests.

Instead, Duncan insisted that Trump’s final year in office was “hardly a time of tranquility,” reminiscing that Trump had stoked racial unrest when he claimed, “When the looting starts, the shooting starts.”
