She’s also gained support from several high profile political figures, including former President Barack Obama.
Her campaign came under fire just two days before the election when her opponent, current Secretary of State Brian Kemp, who oversees elections, launched an investigation into Georgia’s Democratic Party for an attempted hack of the voter registration system. Abrams called the claims “a witch hunt.”
The tight race between Abrams and Kemp could go to a run-off if one of them does not get more than 50 percent or more of the votes.
