Abrams defends burning state flag, Confederate symbol in '92

Abrams previously defended taking out-of-state campaign donations by arguing that Georgia is a "national state".

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams says that she is "sick and exhausted about of hearing about the free market" when discussing health care policy.

Abrams is hoping to become the first-ever African-American woman to be elected as a governor.

One of those apparent instances of what appeared to be an attempt to at least intimidating voters by using the politics of fear came just Monday night when a decades-old image of Abrams surfaced on social media showing her burning a Georgia flag emblazoned at the time with the racist Confederate symbol.

While Halloween H20 was initially conceived to be one big 20th-anniversary celebration, the film hasn't lasted the test of time. Curtis also celebrated via Twitter , writing: "OK, I'm going for one BOAST post", adding the hash tag #WomenGetThingsDone .


Polls show Ms Abrams and Mr Kemp now tied in the gubernatorial race, with the first debate due to take place today.

Early voters particularly concerned Kemp who fretted about "the literally tens of millions of dollars that they [the Abrams camp] are putting behind the get-out-the-vote effort to their base". She said it is the responsibility of Georgians to take care of those in need, especially when they are "working families who only want a little bit of access to health care". It's fairly normal for politicians to (privately) lament their opponent turning out people to vote (progressive challenger to Andrew Cuomo's New York Democratic Governorship bid, Cynthia Nixon, even publicly blamed her loss partially on high turnout), and this quote echoes familiar complaints.

The race is being watched as a barometer for Democrats' success in the midterm elections, as they try to make gains in Congress and in important state positions to counter President Donald Trump's agenda.

Kemp has counter-punched hard at Abrams, saying she's "too extreme for Georgia". He is being sued, as chief elections officer, by various groups for "voter suppression".

Kemp then asserted that much of that Abrams effort is focused on absentee ballot requests.

It is unclear if this issue will help or hurt Abrams' campaign.

Republican Brian Kemp, Georgia's secretary of state, faces Democratic former state House minority leader Stacey Abrams. Marco Rubio, among others.

On the campaign trail, Kemp, who is Georgia's secretary of state, has said he would protect the monument "from the radical left".
