GA: Kemp-Ensure a Smooth Transition


Atlanta, GA (WSB) – Georgia governor-elect Brian Kemp addressed the public Monday, after a bitter gubernatorial race that saw more than a week of post-election legal maneuvering.

On Friday Kemp’s opponent, Democrat Stacey Abrams, ended her bid to become America’s first African American female governor.

On Sunday, she said Kemp was the legal victor, but she would not call him the legitimate winner of the race.

The Republican congratulated Abrams for running a tough race.

He focused his comments Monday on transitioning into the next governor.

Governor-Elect Brian Kemp said, “I understand the enormous responsibility that was given to me on November the sixth. I’m prepared to do what it takes to ensure a smooth and successful transition on January the 14th.”

Abrams plans to file a federal lawsuit over the election.

The suit will focus on what she calls mismanagement of the election and the electoral system she says kept some from casting a vote.
