Georgia’s Stacey Abrams refuses to concede, says victory ‘within reach’

Democrat Stacey Abrams said early Wednesday morning that she’s not conceding the Georgia governor’s race despite Republican candidate Brian Kemp’s lead.

“I’m here to tell you tonight that votes remain to be counted,” Abrams told her supporters in Atlanta.

Kemp is leading Abrams by more than two percentage points – 50.6 percent to 48.5 percent – with 97 percent of precincts reporting.

The Democrat’s campaign believes there are enough outstanding votes to trigger a run-off election in the state. If neither candidate earns more than 50 percent of the vote, then they will head for a Dec. 4 runoff — the first general election gubernatorial runoff in the state’s history.
