Stacey Abrams Still Lying About Georgia Election She Refused to Concede

'Concession means to acknowledge an action is right, true, or proper...'

Failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, who just announced another bid for Georgia’s governorship, claimed she didn’t challenge the results of the 2018 gubernatorial election after Republican Gov. Brian Kemp won.

“On the 16th of November when I acknowledged that I would not become governor, that [Kemp] had won the election, I did not challenge the outcome of the election unlike some recent folks did,” Abrams told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, seemingly referring to former president Donald Trump’s legal challenges of the 2020 presidential election.

During the 2018 election, Abrams accused Kemp, without evidence, of suppressing the vote and using dirty tactics while he was Georgia’s secretary of state to win the election. She refused to concede the election, even after acknowledging Kemp won, because “concession means to acknowledge an action is right, true, or proper.”

Even as recently as 2019, Abrams was claiming that she had actually won the 2018 election. 

“I legally acknowledge that Brian Kemp secured a sufficient number of votes under our existing system to become the governor of Georgia,” she said in a 2019 interview. “I do not concede that the process was proper, nor do I condone that process.”

Abrams announced she is again running for governor, setting up a potential rematch against Kemp. 

“If our Georgia is going to move to its next and greatest chapter, we’re going to need leadership,” she claimed in a video announcing her campaign.
