Abrams defends burning state flag, Confederate symbol in '92

Abrams's acknowledgement of the incident came after an article in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution surfaced showing Abrams helping torch the flag, which at the time pictured a "Stars and Bars" Confederate battle symbol.

Kemp said that his concern stemmed from the millions of dollars that Abrams has put into a get-out-the-vote campaign that has shown success in the state despite Kemp's actions to limit the number of voters eligible to show at the polls in November. Georgia voters are clearly energized.

The Republican Governors Association slammed Abrams for her criticism of the free market, saying she's "too extreme for Georgia".

Kerwin Swint, a professor of political science at Kennesaw State University, said the race is being watched so closely because it exemplifies the nation's split over President Trump.

The first question posed to the two-term Georgia secretary of state, asked by a debate moderator Tuesday night in Atlanta, drove at an issue that has drawn national attention to the campaign: accusations today, and from over the past eight years, that Kemp has sought to suppress the minority vote.

"Ms. Abrams's role in the protest, which took place around the end of her freshman year at Spelman College in Atlanta, has begun to emerge on social media on the eve of her first debate Tuesday with her Republican opponent, Secretary of State Brian Kemp", The New York Times reported.

A 1992 photo of Stacey Abrams, who is now the Democratic candidate for governor in Georgia, has resurfaced, showing Abrams ― who was in college at the time ― at a protest where students burned what was then Georgia's state flag.

The number of registrations stuck in "pending" status with Kemp's offices under Georgia's "exact match" law is more than 50,000, with almost 70% of them, according to an Associated Press report, belonging to African-Americans.

The president described globalists as people who want the world to do well even though they supposedly don't care about America. The line was long and it formed early Monday, hours ahead of the president's trip to Houston to stump for Republican Sen.

"Voter suppression is not simply about being told 'no, ' " Abrams said.

Kemp vehemently denies it and says those on the "pending" list can still vote with an approved ID that substantially matches registration information.

Kemp said Abrams wants a "government takeover of health care" and will raise taxes to pay for it.

In fact, she did not.

Georgia's Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams on Sunday said she was "sick and exhausted of hearing about the free market being the solution" to health care issues.

Abrams has received an endorsement from Barack Obama.

Abrams was greeted by supporters who shouted, "Stacey Abrams our next Governor". "It's a bipartisan proven solution that even Gov. Mike Pence did in the state of in".
