The race for governor in Georgia is one of most closely watched contests in the current election cycle and the Democrats just got some bad news about it.
The analysts at the Cook Political Report have moved the race to ‘leans Republican’ which is great news for conservatives and Brian Kemp.
Is Stacey Abrams going to lose this race for a second time?
Very Bad News for Stacey Abrams
We’re now about three and a half months out from the upcoming November elections, where voters will not only cast ballots in the midterms but gubernatorial races across the country, including in Georgia. The race is a re-match from 2018, with Gov. Brian Kemp (R) facing Stacey Abrams (D).
While the race was, until recently, considered a “Toss-Up,” Cook Political Report has now shifted the race to the “Lean Republican” territory. Sabato’s Crystal Ball and Inside Elections had already changed their ratings to “Lean Republican” and “Tilt Republican,” respectively.
Particularly telling for Kemp is that a majority of his donations have come from Georgia, while a significant amount of Abrams’ donations are coming from California. Axios published a helpful chart last week.
Take note of where all the campaign donations are coming from.
“As Axios reported, the majority of Kemp’s money has come from in-state donors ($26.2 million), while $10.2 million of Abrams’s haul has come from California, compared to just $7 million from Georgians.”

Stacey Abrams is funded by liberal states like California and New York. On the other hand, @BrianKempGA is backed by GEORGIANS. Help us BEAT Abrams & her blue-state buddies.

California Democrats who’ve ruined their own state really want to choose the Governor of Georgia https://t.co/Kbcqp5XVpA

Don’t worry about Abrams.
She can always get a job in the liberal media.
