Stacey Abrams was still fighting for votes in Georgia, but the campaign for Brian Kemp, who is also the secretary of state supervising the election (former President Jimmy Carter called on him to resign), has declared victory. However, the Associated Press, NBC and CNN were not calling him the victor as of the time this story was published.

Kemp’s campaign official Austin Chambers told the Associated Press, “We are declaring victory. The message here is pretty simple: This election is over, and the results are clear.”
Kemp has also been retweeting notes of congratulations and responded to the current Republican governor of Georgia, Nathan Deal, by saying, “Thanks Governor Deal! I look forward to working together in the months ahead to transition. Let’s keep choppin’!”
Abrams has vowed to stay in the race until every vote is counted.
“I’m here tonight to tell that votes remain to be counted. There are voices that are waiting to be heard,” she said late Tuesday night. “Across our states, folks are opening up the dreams of voters and absentee ballots and we believe our chance for a stronger Georgia is just within reach but we cannot seize it until all voices are heard. I promise you tonight we are going to make sure that every vote is counted. In a civilized nation the machinery of documentary should work everywhere.”
Stay in the fight, Stacey.
