Georgia: Republican Secretary of State Brian Kemp resigned from his post last Thursday, asserting that he is the winner of the gubernatorial race, despite the race not being called yet. He is facing a challenge from Stacey Abrams, the Democratic candidate for governor and the The Democratic Party of Georgia that tweeted a message about a “handful” of Georgia counties that reported thousands of new absentee, early, and Election Day votes had not yet been counted. Kemp’s campaign argued that it was “mathematically impossible” for Abrams to pull ahead or get close enough to trigger a recount, as he led her by 58,875 votes. The Democratic Party says that Kemp lied about the numbers and Abrams needs 21,727 more votes to trigger a recount.

There may be hope yet for Stacey Abrams, the Democratic candidate for governor.

The Democratic Party of Georgia tweeted Saturday evening that a “handful” of Georgia counties reported thousands of “new” absentee, early, and Election Day votes not accounted for by Republican candidate Brian Kemp.

Kemp, who resigned as secretary of state on Thursday, has asserted victory even though the race has not been called and Abrams has yet to concede.

The latest vote tally on the Georgia secretary of state’s website shows Kemp leading by more than a percentage point. Kemp had 1,975,806 votes to Abrams’ 1,916,931 — a margin of 58,875 votes — leading 50.28 percent to Abrams’ 48.78 percent. The Libertarian candidate, Ted Metz, had a mere 37,149 votes and 0.95 percent of the vote.
