    Four-term congressman defeats Democrat Bourdeaux in once safe GOP seat Georgia Republican Rep. Rob Woodall barely survived his re-election against Democrat Carolyn Bourdeaux, prevailing in a recount two weeks after Election Day. Woodall led Bourdeaux by just 419 votes after the first count, which was a slim enough margin for the challenger to request a recount. The four-term congressman’s margin grew to 433 votes after Wednesday’s recount, and Bourdeaux conceded in the afternoon, shortly before The Associated Press called the race.

    Georgia’s hotly contested election for governor was neither fair nor free, former Democratic gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams said in a Monday night interview. Abrams, who announced on Friday that she was ending her gubernatorial bid, told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes that her Republican opponent Brian Kemp had for years undermined democracy as Georgia’s secretary of state. “It was not a free and fair election,” Abrams said. “We had thousands of Georgians who were purged from the rolls wrongly, including a 92-year-old woman who had voted in the same area since 1968 ― a civil rights leader.”

    Rest of Headline: Federal Judge Finds County In Violation of Civil Rights Act Over Rejected Absentee Ballots[snip] U.S. District Judge Leigh Martin May ruled on Tuesday that Gwinnett County in Georgia was in violation of the act by rejecting absentee ballots that showed an incorrect birth year or omitted the detail altogether. The judge acknowledged that the ruling comes as there are “many hotly contested and highly publicized elections issues across the state” but ultimately ruled that this particularly “small portion of the outstanding absentee ballots” should be counted.

    A Georgia federal judge ruled in favor of Democrat Stacey Abrams’ campaign Monday night, ordering election officials to review thousands of provisional ballots that have not been counted in the contested election for governor. Judge Amy Totenberg, a New Yorker who serves on the Atlanta-based court, said that the race cannot be officially certified until those ballots were counted. Many voters have complained they were told at polling stations they weren’t registered and had to file provisional ballots. Abrams would need to gain more than 20,000 votes to force a runoff against Republican Brian Kemp.

    Republican Brian Kemp is pressing Democrat Stacey Abrams to concede Georgia’s tight gubernatorial race as civil rights groups urge her to stay and fight. Kemp’s campaign issued a statement Saturday that said it was mathematically impossible for Abrams to even force a runoff, much less win outright. It called Abrams’ refusals to concede “a disgrace to democracy” that “completely ignore the will of the people.” . . On Saturday, she released a statement that she had met with voters who experienced difficulties casting ballots. She said her campaign had heard stories of voters turned away from the polls, students and...

    After a hard-fought and often nasty campaign, Georgia’s Secretary of State Brian Kemp has won the race to become the state’s next governor over House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams. Kemp eked out a victory with fewer than 70,000 votes separating him from Abrams. Quixotic Libertarian candidate Ted Metz picked up just over 37,000 votes. Howard Dean ✔ @GovHowardDean She should not concede. The election was almost certainly stolen by a candidate who supervised his own “election”

    Democrat Stacey Abrams is refusing to concede in Georgia’s governor’s 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...

    During a November 4 appearance on CNN’s State of the Union Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams (D) admitted that a possible outcome of her gun control plans could be that “people would turn their guns in.” Tapper reminded the viewing audience that Abrams co-sponsored Georgia HB 731 on January 2016. He pointed out that Abrams’ co-sponsors admitted the bill would “require gun owners of these particular models to turn their guns in.” Abrams did not try to hide her support for HB 731, rather, she said that was simply the beginning of “a conversation.” She then made clear that as...
