Stacey Abrams' campaign defends her participation in 1992 Georgia flag burning

Rolling Stone magazine released an audio clip in which Kemp appears to say that he is anxious about an "unprecedented" number of absentee ballot applications after Abrams' campaign focused on turning out its base with absentee ballots.

"We're following the process", said Kemp in an interview with WABE.

"He's been sued by the military for refusing to allow soldiers overseas to cast ballots". And that's the deeper concern that I have. "Voter suppression isn't only about blocking the vote, it's also about creating an atmosphere of fear, making people worry that their vote won't count".

Brian Kemp, the Georgia Republican candidate for governor, expressed alarm that his opponent Stacey Abrams' voter turnout efforts "continues to concern us, especially if everybody uses and exercises their right to vote", according to an audio recording leaked to Rolling Stone. The Confederate emblem was added "as a rebuke of the growing Civil Rights movement", the Associated Press reported.

A photo emerged on Monday night that showed Stacey Abrams, Georgia's Democratic candidate for governor, burning the state's flag during a protest at Georgia's Capitol in 1992 while she was a freshman at Spelman College in Atlanta. "I have always fulfilled and follow the law", Kemp said. Like his supporter and role model, Donald Trump, Kemp built his attack lines around a carefully constructed set of mischaracterizations (to use the charitable term) of Abrams's actual agenda, mostly based on dubious cost estimates of a single-payer system that she's embraced as an ultimate goal, but not as anything she'd try to enact as governor.

Abrams previously defended taking out-of-state campaign donations by arguing that Georgia is a "national state".

Ms Abrams' campaign against Confederate symbols did not stop in her student days.

A recent Associated Press report showed that Kemp's office has held up the voter registrations of more than 50,000 people, majority Black, because of perceived problems with their registration forms.

Abrams has leveraged media coverage of the list and accused Kemp of actively suppressing minority votes.

If elected, Abrams, 44, would become the first black female governor in the nation. He also cited that because there were many eyes on this election "I'm certain that there would be a lot of people watching that". I was actually shocked - I had to watch that video twice.

Robert Howard, a political science professor at Georgia State University, told Fox News it's not a matter of if but when Georgia sees a blue wave, considering its dramatic demographic changes.

Abrams denied the charge again Tuesday, saying: "I have never in my life asked for anyone who is not legally eligible to vote to be able to cast a ballot".

Kemp made the comments at an event called "Georgia Professionals for Kemp".

"I'm so bullish on Medicaid expansion because I know it works", Abrams said.
