Kemp declares victory in Georgia, Abrams rejects it

Democratic candidate for governor in Georgia Stacey Abrams refused to accept Republican Brian Kemp's declaration of victory. The race for the governor's seat has been very close, with Kemp winning 50.3%, according to the Associated Press. "Based on counts released by the Secretary of State's office, Brian Kemp's margin is so large that the number of provisional ballots and overseas ballots will not change his Election Day victory. Simply put, it is mathematically impossible for Stacey Abrams to win or force a run-off election," the GOP candidate's office stated.

However, Abrams announced she is assembling a legal team to investigate the outcome of the election. "Our opponent has had his office declare himself the victor and we do not accept that," her campaign said. "They are trying to force an outcome without proof and expecting everyone to go along with it."
