History, Trump and partisan bitterness collide in Georgia governor's race

History, Trump and partisan bitterness collide in Georgia governor's race

He unveiled his latest gambit Sunday, when he announced an investigation of the Democratic Party of Georgia for a "failed attempt to hack the state's voter registration system". The AP also reported that through a process Kemp calls "voter roll maintenance", his office has "cancelled over 1.4 million voter registrations since 2012" and that "nearly 670,000 registrations were cancelled in 2017 alone". "And no one on the ballot needs a vote because we're women".

Ahead of the November 6 vote, in which Kemp will face off against Democrat Stacey Abrams, the system "remains secure" and should allow the vote to proceed as planned as "no personal data was breached." .

In Georgia, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams is accusing her Republican opponent, Secretary of State Brian Kemp, of abusing his power with "cooked up" hacking accusations against her party.

In a statement, the Abrams campaign called the robo-calls a desperate and "vile" attempt to sway voters using "poisonous thinking". "Because I can assure you if I hadn't done anything and the story came out that something was going on, you'd be going 'Why didn't you act?'"

"While we cannot comment on the specifics of an ongoing investigation, I can confirm that the Democratic Party of Georgia is under investigation for possible cyber crimes", Kemp's spokeswoman Candice Broce said. This is Stacey Abrams.




Georgians wait in line to cast their votes in the 2018 midterm election at a Gwinnett County polling place in Annistown Elementary School in Snellville, Georgia. Before any of that became public, Kemp's state office declared Sunday that it was investigating Georgia Democrats.

But Abrams would have none of that, declaring Kemp a "bald-faced liar" intent on deflecting attention from security problems with his system.

Reprising his frantic campaigning during the final days of his 2016 race, Trump was barnstorming the country with rallies in Ohio, Indiana and Missouri, returning to the White House well after midnight. "The press is very much considering it a referendum on me and us as a movement".

Georgia voters are turning out to decide several key Election Day contests beyond the heated race for governor. Republicans have successfully shut out Democrats from holding any statewide office in Georgia since 2010.

Stamos said he believed Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department specialists would be better positioned to investigate any hack. Democrats see a potential opening as demographic shifts have made the Atlanta suburbs less white.
