A new political action committee (PAC) backed by Georgia’s 2018 Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams on Tuesday filed a federal lawsuit against Georgia election officials. The suit is requesting that a judge order that extensive problems in the state’s election system be fixed.
Such a move by Abrams would be highly unusual, and perhaps unique in the history of American politics. Such a legal challenge in the unresolved Georgia governor’s race would require that the Georgia Supreme Court decide whether there should be a new election for governor.
Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams has filed a new lawsuit as she continues to try to force a runoff in the too-close-to-call election which has made national news.

Prominent civil rights groups, as well as Democrats all over the country, are urging her to stay in the fight.
Georgia Republican governor candidate Brian Kemp really didn’t need any outside help to make him appear racist. He was doing that very well all by himself.
However over the weekend Kemp got some help anyway, as a white supremacist group that targeted Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum with racist robocalls began targeting Kemp’s opponent, Georgia Democratic governor candidate Stacey Abrams.
Winfrey will reportedly make two public appearances with the popular Abrams, who is in the middle of a very close race for governor. Reports say they are planning two town hall meetings which will allow them to have real conversations with Georgia voters.
The Georgia governor’s race is getting tighter, as Republican Brian Kemp and Democrat Stacey Abrams are statistically tied according to a new poll.
In the Atlanta Journal-Constitution/Channel 2 Action News poll released last night, Kemp holds 1.4 percentage point lead over Abrams — 47.7 percent to 46.3 percent. The differential is within the poll’s 2.8 percent margin of error, meaning the candidates may be considered to be statistically tied in their historic race.
