This Democrat candidate is refusing to go away after she was defeated
Democrats failed to pull off any signature victories in key statewide races on election night.
But that hasn’t stopped them from throwing a temper tantrum.
And now this Democrat candidate is refusing to go away.
With 100% of precincts reporting, Democrat Stacey Abrams trails Republican Brian Kemp by 1.7% in the Georgia governor race.
Kemp has won 50.4% of the vote – enough to avoid a runoff.
But Abrams has refused to concede and now she’s getting her lawyers involved.
The Wall Street Journal reports:
Democrat Stacey Abrams was trailing in her historic bid to become the nation’s first female African-American governor, but her campaign said Wednesday morning that voting problems as well as uncounted absentee and provisional ballots could force a runoff.
On a midmorning conference call, Ms. Abrams’ campaign manager Lauren Groh-Wargo said the campaign’s lawyers were checking with county election boards and considering litigation if necessary.
“All options are on the table,” Ms. Groh-Wargo said, adding that any resolution of the election could take weeks or longer.
In the days before the election Abrams brought in everyone from Oprah to Barack Obama and even Will Ferrell to campaign for her.
Georgia Democrats raked in a million dollar donation from George Soros.
But all that still wasn’t enough.
As we reported, Abrams sponsored legislation that would force law-abiding gun owners to turn in their guns.
She called for a ban on AR-15’s.
Ultimately Georgia voters did not elect her because of her radical stance on gun confiscation.
