Stacey Abrams is not conceding to Brian Kemp’s racism and voter suppression tactics in Georgia. She was running for governor of Georgia to expand Medicaid, enact sensible gun laws, protect public schools from privatization and more. Kemp — Georgia’s secretary of state who oversees elections — was running to suppress the vote and his countless lawsuits are proof. Kemp was sued for voter suppression and even former President Jimmy Carter called on Kemp to resign as secretary of state.

Abrams is fighting back.

All day yesterday there were reports of Black neighborhoods being affected by faulty machines, insanely long lines and thousands of votes not being counted. As of now, Kemp is at 50.5 percent and Abrams is at 48.6 percent.

Last night, Abams said, “I’m here tonight to tell that votes remain to be counted. There are voices that are waiting to be heard. 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.”

It appears clear that Kemp brazenly tried to steal the election.
