Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, right, greeted President Donald Trump as he visited Georgia to talk about an infrastructure overhaul at the UPS Hapeville hub at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta on July 15, 2020. Over the weekend, Trump escalated his attacks on Kemp, saying he was "ashamed" to have endorsed him in 2018.

President Donald Trump's sustained assault on his own party in Georgia, and his repeated claims of election fraud in the state, have intensified worries among Republicans that he could be hurting their ability to win two crucial Senate runoff races next month.

The president has continued to claim without evidence that his loss in the new battleground state was fraudulent, directing his ire in particular at Gov. Brian Kemp and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, both conservative Republicans, whom he has accused of not doing enough to help him overturn the result.

Over the weekend, he escalated his attacks on Kemp, saying he was "ashamed" to have endorsed him in 2018, and on Monday he called Kemp "hapless" as he urged him to "overrule his obstinate Republican Secretary of state."
