Democrat Stacey Abrams is refusing to concede in Georgias governors race, despite unofficial returns giving Republican Brian Kemp 50.7 percent and Abrams 48.4 percent.
Democracy only works when we work for it, when we fight for it, when we demand it, and apparently today when we stand in line for hours to meet it at the ballot box, Abrams told supporters early Wednesday morning. I am here today to tell you there are votes remaining to be counted. Voices are waiting to be heard.
Her campaign manager Lauren Groh-Wargo told the crowd that absentee and provisional ballots have not yet been counted.
We have three factors to be considered here: outstanding votes, absentee ballots to be counted, and provisional ballots, Groh-Wargo said.Given those three issues, we believe this is likely heading to a runoff.
Only when a candidate for governor fails to reach the 50 percent threshold would a runoff be held.
We believe we do not know this is headed for a runoff, Groh-Wargo, said, reports The New York Times. This is not ending soon, and were unlikely to have anything definitive to say until the morning.

The race for the governorship was tight for months and Abrams enjoyed outside support from key Democrats including former President Obama and Oprah Winfrey.
Some predicted at the time that Winfreys campaign efforts on behalf of Abrams would be enough to get her elected.
A lot of celebrities can raise money for you if you are running for political office. Oprah Winfrey has a spiritual connection with so much of this country, and it was built over years and years of doing that talk show, Fox News co-host Dagen McDowell said on Fox Newss Outnumbered earlier this month.
Kemp did not declare victory outright early Wednesday but was confident the math would be on his campaigns side when all the votes were counted.
There are votes left to count, but we have a very strong lead, he said. Folks, make no mistake: The math is on our side to win this election.
A Democrat has not been elected governor of Georgia since 1998.
Let's just have Kemp's gloatfest right now.
Well hello! She’s only behind because of all those racis’ in Atlanta.
she lost, it is over, let her cry all she wants
I am loving this
Racists? How about she was a freaking dumbass who said she was going to take away guns from one of the biggest hunting states in the Union or Confederate (which ever they are)
Stacey Abrams checking her car trunk for thousands of Demonrat ballots.
Funny I just said something about her wanting to take guns away from ordinary folk...but that is not ordinary folk.
They only want to take the guns away from white males.
Stupid black woman wants it both ways.
I think counting all the votes is an important gesture regardless of how the election is going.
Let's just have Kemp's gloatfest right now.
They keep whittling it down. Everyone and everything has been reported except DeKalb County. No way this can't be counted by now. You can sense what will happen.
Currently Kemp is at 50.39% TO Abrams' 48.66% with 2441 of 2634 precincts complete. I don't get that at all, I guess all 200 or so precincts not finished reporting are in DeKalb? That is the only County not 100%.
Her spill last night gives us plenty to worry about regarding all these votes and dreams that have yet to be opened and counted. I want to celebrate, but I will wait for the seal of doom for Abrams before doing so.
... and the Oprah she rode in on!
is that scope backwards?
“is that scope backwards?”
Yes I believe it is
What she really meant is, "we are canvasing cemeteries at this very minute."
She is the poster child for ABL (Angry Black Lady).
An easy mistake to make but you should ask a moderator to change the name from Adams to Abrams in the title.
Yeah; communists are generally sore losers. Abrams is proving that. It’s not even close at 3% spread.
She is trying a hail Mary to force this into a runoff election in Dec.
Maybe some of those dead babies could’ve given her the margin of victory.
Typical immature recalcitrant lightweight.
And then rotated it so that the elevation knob is on the right side and adjustments work the opposite way.
