Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams Refuses To Concede Governor’s Race

Stacey Abrams refuses to concede saying ‘every vote is getting counted…’  She refused to concede defeat to her Republican opponent Brian Kemp in the tight Georgia governor’s race and vows to keep on fighting.

She also went on to accuse Brian Kemp without directly naming him of suppressing the vote by making it harder to participate in the election. “I’m not going to name names, but some have worked hard to take our votes away.”

CNN:

Democratic candidate Stacey Abrams is not conceding the Georgia governor’s race to Republican candidate Brian Kemp, arguing that the high stakes contest is too close to call.

CNN has not projected a winner in the Georgia governor’s race, but Kemp is ahead in votes with 99% of precincts reporting.
“I’m here tonight to tell you votes remain to be counted. There’s voices that are waiting to be heard,” Abrams told supporters early Wednesday morning gathered in Atlanta.
In a statement provided to CNN, her campaign cited several specific reasons why she is not conceding, including that three of the state’s largest counties “have reported only a portion of the votes that were submitted by early mail” and four other large counties “have reported exactly 0 votes by mail,” according to the campaign. Together, it said, the seven counties “are expected to return a minimum of 77,000 ballots.”
