The Governor of the Republic of Georgia, Casey Cagle and Brian Kemp, are on their way to a July waste trap.
While Cagle, the State Lieutenant Governor and Kemp, Georgia's State Secretary, appeared on top of a somewhat crowded GOP field candidate, won no more than 50 percent of the vote to avoid a July 24th resignation.
The Republican Primer was filled with candidates who prompts to be tough on illegal immigration and promised to protect weapon rights. Cagle and Kemp turn out former state Sen. Hunter Hill, State of Sen. Michael Williams and Businessman Clay Tippins.

Here is a look at the two candidates.
Casey Cagle has already made history in the state. In 2006 he became the first Republican elected to serve as Georgia's leading governor; Prior to that, he was the youngest state consulate chosen in 1994 in 28 years.
"It's fun to come first. We have a lot more to do," said Cagle to supporters. "We are right where we must be in the form of this runoff."
Cagle counts himself as a "conservative leader of Georgia" on his campaign website.
Cagle, 52, took part in earlier this year when Atlanta-based airlines said it would cut ties with the National Rifle Association (NRA) in an attempt to establish a "neutral status in the current national debate on control among the recent school security. " In response, Cagle threatened to block any tax legislation that would benefit the airline, unless it went back.
NRA has since approved Cagle in the primary competition.
As a lieutenant governor, Cagle has also taken place for sanctuaries. Just before the primary election, he filed a complaint that accused the city of Decatur of being a sanctuary. The sanctuary cities are banned in Georgia, and local governments must certify that they follow federal immigration agents to receive state funding under the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Decatur Mayor Patti Garrett has said that her city – just east of Atlanta – is "not a sanctuary and has no intentions to become one. "
" I think Washington should look to Georgia for example on conservative leadership, "told Cagle for Atlanta Magazine. "In Georgia, we have banned and defended sanctuary cities, we balance our budget every year and we have combated rights abuse because of labor requirements all while becoming the # 1 state for business."
Cagle was raised by a single mother and played football at Georgia Southern University, according to his biography. At 20 years he started a tuxedo company.
