The two campaigns agreed in September to debate. But Kemp's campaign said President Trump's schedule takes precedence. Trump is coming to Macon, about 100 miles south of Atlanta, to hold a campaign rally with Kemp at 4 p.m. The debate between Kemp and Abrams was originally scheduled for 5 p.m. that same day.
