Republican Brian Kemp says the race is over, and he’s the winner. Democrat Stacey Abrams is purchasing TV time for a runoff election.

The Abrams campaign has been preparing for all possibilities. Voters who previously elected to vote by mail are receiving by mail today an absentee ballot application for the Dec 4 runoff, and we just approved a $250k TV buy.

Trying to present herself as a pragmatic progressive, Democrat Stacey Abrams released a new campaign ad highlighting praise from Republicans to boost her bid for governor.

Georgia Republican Brian Kemp’s campaign on Saturday lambasted Democrat rival Stacey Abrams over her refusal to concede in the state’s gubernatorial race. “Stacey Abrams’ antics are a disgrace to democracy and completely ignore the will of the people,” Brian Kemp campaign communications director Ry...

As her allies pummel Brian Kemp with attack ads, Abrams’ new 30-second spot invokes Republican Gov. Nathan Deal – the most popular political figure in Georgia – and features glowing quotes from House Speaker David Ralston.

The ad is reminiscent of TV spots from U.S. Senate candidate Phil Bredesen of Tennessee and other Democrats running in Republican-leaning states. It underscores Abrams’ attempts to appeal to general election voters by emphasizing her work across the aisle.

The ad focuses on her support for bipartisan proposals such as Deal’s criminal justice initiative and the package of taxes and fees that raised $1 billion for infrastructure improvements. And it’s meant as a tacit rebuttal to Kemp’s claims that she is a “radical” for her progressive views.

On Friday afternoon, a federal judge ruled that Dougherty County had to count all the absentee ballots postmarked on November 6 and received through Nov. 9. The ruling came in response to a lawsuit filed by the Abrams campaign.

The decision will probably add only a few dozen votes to the total count, but it underscored the argument by the Abrams campaign argument that there are still outstanding votes that could affect the outcome.
