Add another potential candidate for Georgia governor to the growing list. Bruce LeVell, a Dunwoody jeweler who was Donald Trump’s go-to defender in Georgia, is weighing a run for the state’s top job.

“It’s going to be exciting to prove to America what I’ve been saying for over a year – Trump is a true unifier,” said LeVell.

LeVell headed Trump’s National Diversity Coalition and would be one of several potential candidates for governor, including state Sen. Michael Williams and former Rep. Jack Kingston, with potential claims on Trump’s endorsement.

On Monday, we told you that Atlanta attorney Joe Whitley, a former federal prosecutor, was also considering jumping into the race.

The Democratic Party in Georgia needs to get on the stick. They need someone to run for Governor and someone to challenge David Perdue.

Trump is a unifier? What planet do you live on?

He has been a unifier. He has unified white supremacists, neo-nazis, neo-Soviets, and people who make money from duping the ignorant. On the other side he has unified people like Glenn Beck, the Bush family and Bernie Sanders against him.
