Democrats Worried Stacey Abrams Can’t Beat Brian Kemp

(Headline USADemocrats are reportedly worried that Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams will not be able to beat Republican Gov. Brian Kemp in this November’s election.

Kemp has held onto a sizable lead over Abrams from the very start of her campaign, and she has shown no sign of catching up to him. She is also trailing Sen. Raphael Warnock, D-Ga., in popularity, according to the New York Times.

“There are Republican voters who are OK with Sen. Warnock,” Democratic pollster Fred Hicks explained. “But there is a very strong anti-Stacey Abrams feeling.”

Abrams and Kemp faced off in 2018, and Kemp won the race by a narrow margin, avoiding a runoff election by only 18,000 votes. Even after her loss, Abrams was seen as a Democrat rising star, and was even considered for the vice presidency by President Joe Biden’s campaign.

But now she’s “struggling” just to stay afloat, Democrat operatives admitted.

“Democrats have largely kept quiet on their concerns about Ms. Abrams’s campaign. But several county elected officials and community leaders in Georgia have privately expressed their worries to the campaign directly, according to interviews with more than two dozen Democratic officials who asked not to be named discussing private conversations,” the report said.

“They have complained that the campaign was slow to reach out to key constituencies and underestimated Mr. Kemp’s strength in an already difficult year for Democratic candidates.” 

Leftist Democrat donor Steve Phillips claimed Abrams is floundering because of sexism.

“The picture of leadership we have, Stacey is, like, the opposite,” Phillips said. “[Her identity as a black woman] is part of the depth of the enthusiasm for her, but it also explains the depth of the resistance.”

Kemp’s team, however, argued Abrams is losing because she’s a bad candidate with a bad platform.

“Stacey Abrams’s campaign isn’t connecting with Georgia voters, and people across the country and here in Georgia know it,” a spokesman for Kemp told Fox News.

“After raising millions hand over fist from out-of-state billionaires, her campaign, and Georgia Democrats, are now mired in internal squabbling. Gov. Kemp will continue to run on his record of putting Georgians first and his vision for a safer, stronger Georgia.”
