In Georgia, Republican Brian Kemp and Democrat Stacey Abrams were still battling in one of the most hotly contested and contentious gubernatorial races of the 2018 midterm elections ... As of Wednesday morning, the race was too close to call, according to FOX News' latest projections, with Kemp having the edge. Abrams and her campaign said there were enough ballots outstanding, particularly absentee ballots in heavily Democratic metro Atlanta counties, to bring the Republican below the majority threshold required for victory. Kemp and Abrams are hoping to escape a potential overtime run.
If neither candidate earns more than 50 percent of the vote, then they will head for a Dec. 4 runoff — the first general-election gubernatorial runoff in the state’s history. Libertarian Party candidate Ted Metz could increase the likelihood of that happening if he peels away enough voters from Kemp and Abrams. In a speech to supporters early Wednesday morning, Abrams demanded that all the votes be counted and implied a runoff is likely, saying voters will get a "do-over." - Reported by Brooke Singman and Jennifer Earl (@jenearlyspeakin on Twitter.)
