Georgia Governor’s Race Not Over Yet as Dem Refuses to Concede

Stacy Abrams is making it very difficult for Georgians to move forward on Wednesday.

The main story of the American midterm elections of 2018 has been written, and it goes a little something like this:

Democrats predictably snagged the House while republicans kept the Senate, meaning that Donald Trump will have some uphill battles to face in doing forward with his stated agenda.

But not every storyline from Tuesday has been wrapped up neatly with a bow.  Take Georgia’s gubernatorial contest for instance, where democratic nominee Stacy Abrams has declined to concede, believing that the election will be subject to a December runoff.

Early Wednesday morning, Georgia’s Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams refused to concede to Republican challenger Brian Kemp.

“Votes remain to be counted. There are voices that were waiting to be heard,” Abrams said before a crowd of supporters. “Across our state, folks are opening up the dreams of voters in 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. And I promise you tonight we are going to make sure that every vote is counted – every single vote.”

Just how far off is Abrams?

As Abrams gave her speech, NBC News reported on screen that with 99% of precincts reporting, the gubernatorial hopeful was down by 115,362 votes, or approximately 3%.

According to The New York Times, with 100% of precincts reporting as of publication, Abrams still trails Kemp by 94,468 votes, or approximately 2.5%.

Georgia state law dictates that if no candidate receives a majority of votes, the top two candidates enter into a runoff election. According to NBC News, such a runoff would take place on December 4.

Abrams’ opponent Brian Kemp is the current Secretary of State in the state of Georgia, with his office being responsible for electoral oversight in The Peach State.  This fact has added an unnecessary amount of drama to the proceedings, with Abrams doing little to shore up voter confidence in Kemp’s staff to remain neutral in the election.

Everybody should be held accountable for their role, no matter how big or small, for having a hand in this entire impeachment fiasco. Missouri Senator Josh Hawley (R) hopes to see it come to fruition. From Politico: If the Senate decides to consider new impeachment trial witnesses and documents next week, Sen. Josh Hawley plans to try and force votes on everyone from Adam Schiff to Joe Biden. The Missouri Republican is preparing to file subpoena requests for witnesses and documents that Democrats and Republicans alike won’t want to vote on. Hawley’s strategy harmonizes with plans from GOP Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Rand Paul of Kentucky to force votes to hear from Hunter Biden, the former vice president’s son who was on the board of Ukrainian energy company Burisma.

That’s the easy part. What’s crazy is that Democrats are willing to overlook Joe’s malfeasance and corruption because they so loathe Donald Trump – a president who has literally committed no crime while in office. Had Trump actually committed a crime, we would have known about it by now. And yet, Dems keep reaching and reaching for something, anything – always coming up flat. From Daily Wire: New York Times reporter Kenneth Vogel said on the newspaper’s podcast on Wednesday that Ukrainian gas company Burisma got its “rationale” to put then-Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, on its board because of Joe Biden’s position in the U.S. government and his activities in Ukraine. Allegations surrounding the Joe and Hunter Biden’s in Ukraine and with Burisma have become a sore spot for Joe Biden as…

Noted Trump Critic Says POTUS Defense Team Was ‘Brilliant’ & ‘Sophisticated’ & ‘Effective’

The trifecta…

It is so easy to defeat a liberal argument, especially regarding the impeachment of President Trump, that even noted anti-Trump Democrats are joining in on the fun. In other words, things are not looking up for Schiff and company. Not at all. The Daily Wire has the scoop… Constitutional Law Professor at George Washington University Jonathan Turley, a Trump critic who was widely praised for his non-partisan testimony during House Democrats’ impeachment hearings, praised Trump’s legal team on Saturday over their performance in defending the president. “The House took a lot of hits below the waterline today,” Turley wrote on Twitter. “These were powerful points that gave ample foundation for senators to support acquittal without agreeing with the Dershowitz theory or the suggestion that everything was ‘perfect.’ I liked the low key, fact-based argument.” Turley added, “The White House did a particularly good job explaining its position on refusing discovery and also the unfair process. Moreover, it was a brilliant decision to limit the opening to a few hours. The House subjected the Senate to mind-numbing repetition for 22 hours.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/KamVTV/status/1220461301367037952?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1220461301367037952&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fimpeachment-witness-trump-critic-trump-trial-defense-brilliant-sophisticated-effective WATCH: https://twitter.com/NewsHour/status/1220056517510156298?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1220056517510156298&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fschiff-admits-in-senate-trial-that-impeachment-about-stopping-trump-re-election WATCH: Rep.

Where are the people who are willing to go beyond their party to look to their duty?” https://twitter.com/ABCPolitics/status/1197629141522075648?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1197629141522075648&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fthehill.com%2Fhomenews%2Fadministration%2F471565-schiff-says-trumps-actions-go-beyond-anything-nixon-did POTUS called out Schiff for being the lying [insert word here] that he is. And in typical Trump fashion, he spoke the truth and did so with confidence.
