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.

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.”

Stacey Abrams: “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”

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

See the reactions from Twitter, encouraging Abrams to fight.

GEORGIA!!

Don’t give up!! Votes are STILL being counted this morning. It’s not over!@StaceyAbrams continues to gain ground! If Brian Kemp dips below 50% it will force a runoff.

We believe she will win the absentee ballots and the outstanding votes.

Don’t give up!

If you believe Stacey Abrams should not concede then GA voters she needs YOU — if you voted using a provisional ballot or if you had trouble voting. call the Voter Protection Hotline at 1-888-730-5816 to confirm your vote was counted.

Stacey Abrams is not conceding. She’s within 3 points of winning, despite every possible trick Kemp could try to deny people the right to vote and steal the election. She has every right to demand an investigation into the results. She has every reason to doubt these numbers.

Democrat Stacey Abrams speaks as the race for governor in Georgia may be headed to a runoff: “Tonight we have closed the gap between yesterday and tomorrow, but we still have a few more miles to go”

VOTE! Sean Kent

If Stacey Abrams loses by a razor thin margin (which looks likely) there needs to be a Federal investigation into Kemp’s voter suppression tactics. He has stolen this election.

Stacey Abrams is refusing to concede, & I’m glad. Georgia is going to be another case study in voter suppression, and the GOP is going to be watching & planning. Too many people are going to spend the next 2 years focusing on the presidency, but we need to focus on voting rights.

Go, @staceyabrams, go!
