In Georgia, Republican Gov. Brian Kemp is weeks away from defeating Democratic challenger Stacey Abrams for the second time in a row. Kemp bested Abrams back in 2018 when he was running for his first term as Georgia’s governor.
This go-around, Abrams is having similar problems to the ones she had before. Her policies aren’t resonating with the people of Georgia who are overwhelmingly rejecting her as a gubernatorial candidate.
Very recently, a voter suppression lawsuit that Abrams brought against Georgia’s election integrity laws was kicked out of court by a judge appointed by former President Obama.
Yet, even in light of this, Abrams is still using talking points of “voter suppression” to attack Kemp, as documented by Breitbart News.
Reviewing the Latest Lies From Abrams
The Georgia Democratic candidate spoke with MSNBC where she unleashed a series of attacks against Kemp. Despite Abrams’ suit alleging voter suppression being rejected, she still claimed Kemp is a racist suppressor of voting rights.
Brian Kemp likes to portray himself as a moralist, but he’s an opportunist. He uses his political power to strip women of their freedoms, attack the LGBTQ+ community and engage in voter suppression. If you are not like him, he is not for you.

Without evidence, Abrams asserted that white supremacist organizations used Georgia’s “racist” voting laws in order to prevent minorities in the state from casting ballots.
She then went on to tell MSNBC that the current Georgia governor is a “hypocrite” who ultimately “outsourced” the dirty work of voter suppression over to white supremacists.
Looking at the Polls in Georgia
Abrams continues to trail Kemp in the polls by multiple points. Her campaign for governor this time around has been tainted by scandals surrounding her claims about abortion, her views on mask mandates, and a variety of other issues.
Kemp, on the other hand, remains adamant that he’s got a reliable and sound record on which to base his reelection campaign. This record let Kemp get past the primary where he defeated GOP challenger David Perdue.
Thus far, Abrams doesn’t appear likely to win this election. However, since she’s still running with the narrative of voter suppresion, she may very well cite this as the reason she’s lost the race, come next month.

Back in 2018, when Kemp beat Abrams, she refused to admit defeat. Instead, Abrams insisted she was the true winner of Georgia’s gubernatorial election, arguing that Kemp only got in because of racist voter suppression.
With Abrams on track to losing, time will tell if she tries to make a third run for governor of Georgia in 2026 or finally decides to give it up once and for all.
Kemp’s campaign is continuing to not only run on his record, but also call out the dangerous nature of Abrams’ radical policies.
