Republican Brian Kemp has claimed victory in the Georgia governor’s race, but the Abrams campaign and the state Democratic Party are keeping their hopes alive with new findings:
BREAKING: A handful of Georgia counties just reported thousands of new *absentee*, *early*, and *Election Day* votes that @BrianKempGA’s numbers did not account for, significantly closing the gap. #CountEveryVote #gapol

.@BrianKempGA lied that it was only provisionals left. Today, 5,569 new votes were reported- 4,804 more for @staceyabrams; most of these votes are from absentees or E-Day-in counties that were falsely labeled "100%" reported. Abrams now 21,727 from runoff. #CountEveryVote #gapol

Abrams is still over 20,000 votes from a margin that would trigger a runoff, but the Dems are keeping their fingers crossed.

Apparently Republicans either need to hire some "Vote Finders"
Like the Dems
Or maybe we could stop this obscene fraud https://t.co/42lfn02vdo

More ballots magically appear in Georgia. Democrats want to count votes for months after every election. Ballots continue to magically appear for them. https://t.co/dH3fL7t0l6

We’ll see what the Georgia Dems can come up with by the end of the weekend.
