Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams (D) in an impassioned speech early Wednesday morning hinted that she expects a recount and does not intend to back down any time soon.
“I want to say this: if I wasn’t your first choice or if you made no choice at all, you’re gonna have a chance to do a do-over,” Abrams said.
Abrams’ speech came shortly after her campaign manager Lauren Groh-Wargo said her campaign believes there are outstanding votes in Democratic areas as well as provisional and absentee ballots that could lead to her victory, Talking Points memo reported.
Abrams emerged onto the stage amid cheers of “Stacey!”
“When you chose me as your Democratic nominee, I made you a vow,” she began to cheers from the crowd. “In our Georgia, no one would be unseen, no one is unheard and no one is uninspired.”
“Tonight, we have closed the gap between yesterday and tomorrow,” Abrams continued. “But we still have a few more miles to go.”
There were roughly 284,000 mail-in ballots cast statewide, and Groh-Wargo said tens of thousands of those came from Abrams’ supporters, local outlet Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.
