    No. Brian Kemp won by 1.5 point because while he was the Republican gubernatorial candidate he was also the Secy of State in charge of the elections and voided a million voters from the Georgia lists, 80% of them African Americans. That is why he "won".

    Stacey Abrams is wonderful. What a shame the republican'ts had to cheat their way into the governorship. What's even worse the citizens of Georgia that go along with how they got it.
    A missed opportunity for Georgia when she was cheated. The current governor wasn't elected.

    If your going to talk Georgia politics and not mention the state wide cheating your doing a disservice to your viewers. We are not stupid.

    Watch the Project Varitas videos here on YouTube on Democrat ballot box stuffing for actual evidence of the real cheating.

    Georgia is known for cheating across the state for years!

    The fascists republicans motto is, cheat any way you can to keep the Democrats out of office!

    They can't win much any other way, which isn't a win anyway!

    That state is on the take, and dumb ignorant uneducated voters are usually found all across the southern states as republican keep them ignorant and uninformed!

    It's consistently amazing to me how in a "so-called" "fair" American society that votes by registered voters in a state can be so openly and publicly (in your face) manipulated like this by just a few corrupt politicians and get away with it. No questions asked!
