Political handicapper gives Brian Kemp edge over Abrams in GA Governors race

Georgia, a state that has been in the spotlight for numerous reasons over the past several years, is facing an upcoming battle of the titans in the political realm, specifically regarding the race for the governor’s mansion.

Democratic candidate and former gubernatorial race loser Stacey Abrams, a force within her party, is eyeing up the prize. She’s set to face off with incumbent Gov. Brian Kemp (R), but recent polls just slapped the Abrams camp across its proverbial face. 

According to the Washington Examiner, the political handicapper known as Cook Political Report gave Kemp a massive boost on Friday.

The race was previously described as a “toss-up” between the two candidates, but on Friday, it was changed to “lean Republican.”

Kemp defied the odds earlier this year during his state’s primary election, soundly defeating Trump-backed opponent David Perdue for the right to reclaim gubernatorial victory later this year. Perdue is one of but a handful — or less — of Trump-endorsed opponents who’ve lost their primary election this cycle.

The current governor is also making inroads with minority groups in the state at levels that previously Republicans couldn’t reach.

“Abrams leads overall with Hispanics and Asians but even the fact that the governor is close to 40% with those voter groups is encouraging,” Cygnal pollster Brent Buchanan said. “Wait until he spends money on it. I believe the governor will expand on his margins with minority voters over the next few months.”

Anything could happen, but it’s not looking good for Abrams, and politically speaking, if she takes another loss for the same race, her career could be permanently tarnished.

The words come just a week after California Democratic Rep. Judy Chu introduced the Women’s Health Protection Act to protect abortion access. The move marked a strong sign that Democrats won’t stop pressing abortion legislation.
In contrast, 13 states have trigger laws that further limited abortion after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. Many other conservative states have also added new laws or are in the process of doing so as laws concerning abortion have been returned to individual states.
“Among those who said he shouldn’t run, the most common reason given was that ‘he’s a bad president’ (45%), followed by ‘he’s too old’ (30%), and ‘it’s time for a change’ (26%),” Mediaite reported.
“Just 28% either strongly or somewhat approve of his handling of inflation, while 32% approve of his handling of the economy overall,” it added.
Among the Democrats affiliated with the non-profit are Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar and Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib.
In every meaningful respect, AMP/AJP is nothing more than a disguised continuance of IAP/AMS — stripped of the burden of the Boim Judgement and the ignominy of having been found liable for aiding and abetting the murder of an American teenager,” a 2017 lawsuit
“AMP/AJP are the alter egos and successors of IAP/AMS, and are therefore liable for the unpaid portion of the Boim Judgement,” it added.
Among the Democrats affiliated with the non-profit are Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar and Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib.
The case involved the murder of David Boim, who was 17 when shot by members of Hamas in the West Bank in 1996.

I would suggest you let people know what those abbreviations stand for. I keep up with the news regularly, but I don’t know whom you’re referring to, sorry to say.

I can only hope it’s true. She like so many leftists have encouraged violence in their states. I hope Hispanics, black Americans and white Americans finally open their eyes to the chaos and suffering these politicians have created with their inflammatory remarks.
