Dolores Huerta: Vote for Stacey Abrams in Georgia

Dolores Huerta: Vote for Stacey Abrams in Georgia

Athens, GA - -(AmmoLand.com)- Yesterday, United States District Judge Steve Jones issued a ruling that allows absentee ballots with incorrect or omitted birth dates to be counted and denies Stacey Abrams' request to delay certification and count out-of-county provisional ballots. The election is over, and Brian Kemp is the Governor-elect.

"We believe that Brian Kemp mismanaged this election to sway it in his favour", said Ms Abrams's campaign manager Lauren Groh-Wargo, surrounded by Democratic lawmakers at the Georgia Capitol.

Allegra Lawrence-Hardy, Abrams' campaign chairwoman, is overseeing a team of nearly three-dozen lawyers who in the coming days will draft the petition, along with a ream of affidavits from voters and would-be voters who say they were disenfranchised.

Her speech Friday effectively puts a stop to the contest. So let's be clear. "As a woman of conscience and faith, I can not concede that". Kemp now has 50.2 percent of the vote and 18,000 more votes than he needs to avoid a run-off.

Kemp, 55, resigned his post as Secretary of State after the November 6 election and did not oversee the final ballot review.

Unlike Florida's Democrats, the Abrams campaign and her state party anticipated there would be barriers.

Kemp's lead had dwindled since Election Day as absentee and provisional ballots trickled in. Her campaign even planned for possible litigation to challenge the election's certified outcome. She said she had concluded "the law now allows no further viable remedy".

If she is able to do so, and a judge feels there is reasonable doubt that the election results could have been different had interference and irregularities not had taken place, then he/she could declare that the election was invalid and a new vote could be called.

"The election is over and hardworking Georgians are ready to move forward", said Kemp in a tweet. "The campaign is over, and Kemp's focus is on building a safer, stronger future for Georgia families", Kemp campaign spokesman Ryan Mahoney said. It's now up to interim secretary of state Robyn Crittenden to certify the state's results. He captured the Republican nomination in a July runoff, bolstered by Trump's support and by provocative television ads in which he brandished a shotgun at a teenager (to underscore his support for gun rights) and promised to round up "criminal illegals" in his pickup truck. He's promised a tax cut and teacher pay raises and pledged to continue Georgia's refusal to expand Medicaid insurance under President Barack Obama's 2010 health care overhaul.

Abrams' campaign sparked huge energy across the state and she became a national Democratic star.

Since Election Day, Abrams campaign workers have transitioned from get-out-the-vote efforts to helping voters determine whether their ballots were counted and documenting reported problems.

At a press conference on Friday evening Abrams refused to call her acknowledgement of Kemp's victory a concession, arguing that Kemp's record as secretary of state, marred by widespread allegations of voter suppression, made it impossible.

Kemp's victory is an important marker for Republicans ahead of the 2020 presidential election. Kemp's narrow margin already suggests that Georgia, a state Trump won by 5 percentage points in 2016, could be a genuine battleground in two years. The Republican Brian Kemp is just like Trump-he based his entire campaign on attacking Latinos and immigrants.

Abrams' political future is less certain.

The Post maintained it is notable Democrats have made the decision to use the "stolen election" tactic. David Perdue making his first re-election attempt.
