Abrams campaign says it will fight on

ATLANTA (AP) — Stacey Abrams’ campaign says it will continue to fight to get all outstanding votes counted in the Georgia governor’s race and won’t accept former Secretary of State Brian Kemp’s declaration of victory.

At a news conference Thursday, Abrams’ campaign chairwoman Allegra Lawrence-Hardy said the campaign demands that the secretary of state’s office “release all the data, all the numbers, and they need to count every single vote.”

The announcement came shortly after Kemp announced he was stepping down as secretary of state and moving forward with the transition to become the state’s next governor.
