Democrat Stacey Abrams Files Federal Lawsuit To Force Runoff In Georgia Governor Race

Stacey Abrams still hasn’t conceded the Georgia race for governor. In fact, she just filed a federal lawsuit to force a runoff. Democrats will do just about anything for power. This is just another example.

Stacey Abrams’ campaign on Sunday filed a federal lawsuit asking a judge to delay vote certifications in Georgia’s unsettled governor’s race by one day and block counties from tossing some provisional and absentee ballots that may have minor mistakes on them.

Brian Kemp, her Republican challenger, issued a statement a day earlier calling for Abrams to concede. Kemp has declared victory and said it is “mathematically impossible” for her campaign to force a runoff.

Fox 5 Atlanta reported that Kemp is up by 59,000 votes. Kemp had 50.2 percent of the vote by early Monday.

Abrams, 44, has maintained that she will not concede until every vote has been counted, and pointed to the 5,000 votes tallied over the weekend that favored her. The Washington Post reported that she would need 21,700 additional votes to force a runoff.

The suit, if successful, would prevent officials from certifying county vote totals until Wednesday and could restore at least 1,095 votes that weren’t counted. The campaign said thousands of more ballots could be affected.

There is a very good chance that this mess could drag on for weeks.
