Kemp: Abrams' refusal to concede 'a disgrace to democracy'

The biggest gap between state figures and the Abrams tally is in Gwinnett County, where the Democrat's campaign says a scan of county data showed 3,500 more provisional ballots.

"[Kemp] ran a great race in Georgia - he won, " the president wrote on Twitter.

In a frantic effort to make sure every possible vote is counted, dozens of volunteers converged on a warehouse-turned-phone bank near downtown.

One of the lawsuits heard Thursday in federal court requested Kemp be barred from overseeing the rest of the certification procedure - a request pre-empted by Kemp's resignation. Two groups supporting Abrams' call to count all votes, ProGeorgia and Care in Action, said at least 12 other counties had certified election results before Friday, a move that could leave provisional ballots uncounted.

"We will continue to fight for each and every eligible vote to be counted because in a democracy, every vote should be valued".

And it provided the Atlanta Journal Constitution with a county-by-county tally it conducted with local elections offices that showed almost 27,000 provisional votes.

However, Abrams counters that thousands of uncounted ballots are still out there and must be counted. Can we make hundreds of calls?

He's also a Star Wars and Marvel nerd and will jump at the chance to talk about either. 3 for making him the gamer he is today. During his chat, Russo teased many things, but was notably coy about details surrounding the film's trailer.

The Abrams campaign attempted to reserve television advertising time in case she can make it into a runoff with Kemp that would be held December 4, but Atlanta TV station WSB said it wouldn't accept any commercials until votes are certified. "Let's blame the Russians and demand an immediate apology from President Putin!"

Unofficial returns from Tuesday's midterm election show Republican Brian Kemp with 50.3 percent of the vote. That's a narrow sum, considering the near-presidential election year turnout, though sufficient for the majority required for outright victory.

With election officials still tallying votes, Trump declared Kemp the victor and called for the gubernatorial transition to begin.

Meanwhile, Kemp's campaign said 21,190 provisional ballots are still outstanding. The AP will reassess the race Tuesday, the day counties must certify results to the state. "It's time for Abrams to listen and concede immediately".

Kemp said on Thursday morning that it's fewer than 21,000 - nearly certainly not enough to force a runoff.

Abrams is trying to become the first black woman elected governor in the United States, while Kemp is attempting to continue GOP dominance in a diversifying state that could be a battleground in the 2020 presidential election. Despite Kemp's sizeable lead, Abrams refuses to concede until every ballot is accounted for. He began his transition to become the state's next governor. That came after the secretary of state's office said all absentee and early ballots had been counted.

Abrams campaign leaders said she needs to get the margin down to about 22,000 votes to force a runoff, and they sent a fundraising email to supporters Sunday saying at least 30,823 votes remain to be counted. Abrams' campaign argues the total could be higher, and the secretary of state's office has shared scant details as officials in Georgia's 159 counties keep counting.
