Gov. Kemp Crushes Election Denier Abrams in GA Debate

October 18, 2022

In their gubernatorial debate on Monday, Republican Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp crushed his Democrat challenger, election denier Stacey Abrams, slamming her for being pro-crime and for wanting lockdowns during the COVID pandemic.

Abrams once again peddled the lie that she conceded the 2018 election to Brian Kemp even though she spent months asserting that the election had been rigged against her.

When Georgia passed its voter integrity law in 2021, President Joe Biden and Stacey Abrams referred to it as “Jim Crow 2.0,” but as Kemp noted in the debate, black voter turnout in Georgia has steadily increased since the law’s passage.

“In 2018, in the governor’s race, we had the largest African American turnout in the country. She said that Senate Bill 202, our recent election integrity act that we passed two years ago, would be suppressive and Jim Crow 2.0. Just this past May, in our primaries, we again had record turnout in the Republican primary and the Democrat primary. In Georgia, it’s easy to vote and hard to cheat,” he said.

Kemp also hit Stacey Abrams for her Black Lives Matter extremism, from her support of Defund the Police and the elimination of cash bail.

“I support safety and justice,” he said. “No sheriffs are endorsing her statewide because of her stances on wanting to Defund the Police, eliminate cash bail, and serving on the boards of organizations like the Margurite Casey Foundation that supports and gives grants to organizations that are promoting the Defund the Police movement.”

Kemp also took Abrams to task for her past pro-lockdown policy that would have crippled Georgia’s economy.
