In a race for the Governor of Georgia, Brian Kemp and Stacey Abrams continue to face off in an election that may result in a runoff. The race itself is very close, with Kemp leading by 80,000 votes, but the total does not include the absentee and provisional ballots. Abrams pledges not to concede until “every vote is counted.”

If you’ve been following this particular election, you know how contentious it’s been between these opponents. Abrams alleged that Kemp has suppressed voters at least two weeks before the election, with Kemp asking why Abrams had encouraged people to break the law to vote. Kemp was taken to court in 2016 for 53,000 “pending” voter registrations. He was also responsible for voter purges right after announcing his candidacy.
