Stacey Abrams lost her bid to become governor of Georgia to Secretary of State Brian Kemp.
Georgians should be relieved.
Did they really want a governor who burned the state flag and said illegal aliens would be part of the midterm’s “blue wave?”
One would hope not, but unfortunately the race between Abrams and Kemp was extremely close.
Now, Abrams won’t quit whining about how this election was stolen from her.
Kemp isn’t having it.
“We saw the ‘easy to vote’ part — we had 1.4 million more voters in this election than we did in the last governor’s race. A historic turnout. We have a million more people on the rolls because I pushed for and implemented online voter registration where people could register to vote 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If my opponent and her activist groups had used the online system, they wouldn’t have had as many problems as they did with the folks that they were registering.“
“Nobody’s questioning the Democrats’ wins, knocking off one of our congresswomen in the state of Georgia. They’re not questioning the local races that they won. This is really just political rhetoric.“
Abrams claimed fewer polling locations were set up in urban areas.
“Well, that’s just a mistruth. The county elections officials, the local elections boards have the sole responsibility for how many polling locations they have and where they are. That has been the rule of law and the way it works in Georgia under Republican and Democrat Secretaries of State. So that’s just not true. And by the way, the one county that this was an issue with before the election, they’re controlled by Democrats. She’s blaming me for a problem that they created and it’s just ridiculous.”
“We have laws on the books in Georgia, and I know she may not like some of the laws, but we take an oath of office and the county officials have a duty to follow the law and the elections rules that we have in our state. We check citizenship. We require people to show photo ID when they vote. And we verify this information before people go on the voter rolls.“
From The Hill:
A decades-old news article about Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams (D) burning the state flag, which at the time included the Confederate battle flag, resurfaced on Monday.
Abrams stood on the steps of the Georgia Capitol in 1992 and burned the Georgia state flag which was viewed as a symbol of white supremacy due to its Confederate design, The New York Times reported.
Does Abrams not know that illegals can’t vote?

Abrams once voted to confiscate guns. She says she did it just to “start a conversation.”
Will anyone believe that reason?
And “start a conversation” about what, exactly?
Actually banning guns, of course.
Check out what Black Panthers, who chanted “black power,” did for Abrams…
How radical is my opponent? Look at who is backing her. The New Black Panther Party is "a racist…antisemitic organization whose leaders have encouraged violence against whites, Jews, & law enforcement" RT if you agree that Abrams & the Black Panthers are TOO EXTREME for GA! pic.twitter.com/oJXdTHgcym

Do these Black Panthers know Abrams wants to confiscate their guns?
Will Abrams condemn the Black Panthers for carrying?
