FULL TITLE: 'You're going to have a chance to do a do-over!' Stacey Abrams REFUSES to concede Georgia governor's race as she predicts absentee ballots will shrink Republican foe's lead enough to trigger December runoff
A defiant Stacey Abrams refused to concede the Georgia governor's race early Wednesday morning, telling her Demorcatic supporters that despite trailing by about 3 percentage points she expected to come back enough to trigger a December runoff.
'You're going to have a chance to do a do-over,' she said, talking to voters in a state where nearly 3.8 million people cast votes in a contest that held the potential for her to be the first black female chief exective of a U.S. state.
Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp, a Republican, led Abrams with 51 per cent of the vote to her 48 per cent. The state's election law calls for a runoff when no candidate wins an outright majority of votes.
If Kemp's lead were 40,000 votes narrower, he would be beneath that threshold.
'Votes remain to be counted,' Abrams said. 'There are voices waiting to be heard. Across our state folks are opening up the dreams of voters in absentee ballots, and we believe our chance for a stronger georgia is just within reach.'
Tens of thousands of absentee votes were mailed to Georgia election officials.
'I promise you tonight we're going to make sure that every vote is counted. Every single vote! Every vote's getting counted!' she said.

Its depressing that it was that close.
I went to bed around 10:30, and Kemp was up something like 60 to 35. I guess Atlanta came in “dark blue.”
Eat bad grits and die!
‘I promise you tonight we’re going to make sure that every vote is counted. Every single vote! Every vote’s getting counted!’ she said.
So open up them car trunks, look in the closets for boxes of forgotten ballots, keep counting until we have enough.
When she loses shell go to another state and try again for elected office. All those upset suburban women and millennials voting Democrat because of the presidents tone will no doubt ignore Abramss sore loser, sour grapes tantrum!
Here we go
She’s gonna try to pull a Franken. Keep counting over and over until enough additional ballots show up to win
Can you believe this idiot came so close? Same in Florida...way too close for comfort.
Stacey Abrams - Guess this pro-LGBT Democrat says the fat’s in the fire....
Atlanta and most of the surrounding burbs are heavy Dem. It’s not a surprise. State will be blue after a couple more elections.
There are DEAD voices waiting to be heard. Across our state folks are opening up the dreams of DEAD voters in absentee ballots FOUND IN A TRUNK IN A VAN DOWN BY THE RIVER!
Franken’s old lawyers will be busy in MN1.. The rat lost by 700 votes. that one is headed to a recount.
Desantis was the one with the unreal slanted polls pushed by Gillum loving Drudge won by the biggest margin .
I’m certainly not on her side, but if that is Georgia law, then you can’t really fault her for waiting. Especially with Democrats uncanny ability to find uncounted votes
And will be soon in the same sort of serious financial and economic trouble that NY, CA, IL, CT, and other such states are presently in which in turn is also happening in places like Spain, Greece, Italy, and elsewhere in Europe and ultimately in turn was a good deal of what happened to the Soviet Union and East Bloc.
“..until enough additional ballots show up to win...”
We can find “additional ballots” too.
For every one they find, we should find five.
Sorry, I think if there’s a “do over” she will lose BIG TIME.
Seeing a whack job like her actually coming CLOSE will motivate many who stayed home.
Aren’t absentees also counted during the election night canvassing?
