Dolores Huerta: Vote for Stacey Abrams in Georgia

  • Stacey Abrams acknowledged Friday that she could not defeat her GOP opponent in Georgia's gubernatorial election

Abrams Republican challenger, Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp, has held the lead and is expected to be declared the victor on Friday, charged that Abrams has led a "publicity stunt" and her refusal to concede the election serves as a "ridiculous temper tantrum".

Kemp's campaign had called the move "sad and desperate" and had called on Abrams, the former Democratic leader of the Georgia House of Representatives, to concede.

He referred to Abrams' concession, but she insisted her speech wasn't one of concession.

The Abrams campaign has almost three dozen lawyers working on the potential case and considering other legal options.

Abrams accused Kemp of using his position as Georgia Secretary of State to interfere with the vote - an allegation he has strongly denied.

Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J. said the "election is being stolen from" Abrams. "I can not concede that". Republican Brian Kemp is expected to officially become the governor-elect after a long and contentious battle over provisional and absentee ballots.

Whether it was Brian Kemp putting 53,000 voter registration applications on hold, the majority of which were minority voters, or Kemp's office closing over 200 polling places in the past 6 years, there is definitely a case to be made that Kemp and other Republicans have suppressed some votes.

As secretary of state Kemp was responsible for, and widely criticized for, voter purges that removed more than a million people from the rolls between 2012 and 2016.

"Let's be clear. This is not a speech of concession".

Democrat Stacey Abrams and Republican Brian Kemp greet each other before a debate last month in Atlanta.

"We can no longer dwell on the divisive politics of the past but must focus on Georgia's bright and promising future", he said.

While Abrams called it quits, she said she would not concede the contest to Brian Kemp, the GOP's candidate in the hard-fought, racially charged contest.

Abrams, meanwhile, sent volunteers across the state in search of voters whose ballots were rejected.

Democrats have not won a governor's race in the Peach State since 1998.

In a speech at the Abrams team headquarters in Atlanta, the Democratic candidate acknowledged that her campaign had exhausted all legal attempts to count all votes and that her ongoing challenge to Kemp would end.

Judge Jones is the fourth Federal judge in the past three days to find that Kemp's administration violated the United States Constitution during the 2018 election. He was backed by President Donald Trump.

Kemp declared victory two days after the election and appointed a chief of staff for his transition.

But the issue that seemed to electrify voters most in the final weeks was voting access, a particularly sensitive matter because Kemp was still overseeing elections. "This new PAC will pursue accountability in Georgia's elections and integrity in the process of maintaining our voting rolls".
