UPDATED VOTE TOTALS AFFIRM KEMP'S VICTORY,  UNDERMINE ABRAMS' BASELESS ACCUSATIONS AND OBVIOUS LIES

(Athens, GA) - Radical Stacey Abrams refuses to accept the convincing results of the November 6th election. Days after businessman Brian Kemp earned a clear victory at the ballot box, Abrams and her left-wing backers continue to manufacture counts, file frivolous lawsuits, and spread misinformation to reporters and voters alike. In response, Kemp for Governor issued the following statement:

"Stacey Abrams and her radical backers have moved from desperation to delusion," said Ryan Mahoney, Communications Director.  "On Saturday, military, overseas, and provisional ballots were reported throughout Georgia. The counts are in line with publicly available tracking reports. This is not breaking news and does not change the math. Stacey Abrams lost and her concession is long overdue.

"It's incredibly shameful that liberal lawyers are doubling down on lawsuits desperately trying to create more votes for Stacey Abrams. They don't want to win this election. They are trying to steal it."
