'A Disgrace to Democracy': Georgia's Stacey Abrams Faces Pressure to Concede
By Christal Hayes
Democratic candidate Stacey Abrams was being pushed Saturday to concede in the race for Georgia's governor, a day after her Republican counterpart Brian Kemp started his transition into the new role.
It's been four days since voters cast their ballots in the race but despite Kemp claiming victory, no one has called the race for either candidate. Kemp is currently ahead by about 60,000 votes and says it is mathematically impossible for Abrams to win.
Abrams, on the other hand, claims thousands of provisional ballots remain and could put her in recount territory.
On Saturday, Kemp's campaign accused Abrams of ignoring the will of the people and "making up numbers" to keep the race alive. Kemp, who headed the state's election office, contends at most 17,495 provisional and military ballots remain, which would leave Kemp the clear winner.
