Here we go again. A Democrat in a tight race is refusing to concede a race pending counting all the outstanding votes that just might go their way. This time the candidate is Stacey Abrams who is the Democrat hoping to be governor in Georgia over Secretary of State Brian Kemp.
Kemp is currently ahead of Abrams by nearly 68,000 votes with 99% of precincts reporting, according to CNN election results. But he only has 50.4% of the vote. If neither candidate receives 50%, there will be a runoff in early December.
“I’m here tonight to tell you votes remain to be counted. There’s voices that are waiting to be heard,” Abrams, who would be the nation’s first black female governor, told supporters early Wednesday morning gathered in Atlanta.
Americans have seen this movie before. It’s how we got Senator Al Franken among other lawmakers who otherwise would have lost.
According to a statement provided to CNN by her campaign, Abrams is holding off on conceding to see if a runoff is possible.
The campaign cited several specific places in the state that could play a role in a scenario to force the runoff, including three of the state’s largest counties that “have reported only a portion of the votes that were submitted by early mail” and four other large counties that “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.”
“These counties also represent heavily-Democratic leaning constituencies, and the majority of those votes are anticipated to be for Stacey Abrams,” the statement read. The campaign also said absentee ballots could make a difference.
“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,” Abrams said Wednesday morning.
So, now they’re all hot to trot for absentee ballots. Well, that’s better than finding ballots under sinks and in trunks of cars as has been the norm for this stunt.
With all luck, the voters of Georgia will have circumvented this move with a vote for Kemp. Otherwise, Georgia is going to have a mess on its hands.
