Stacey Abrams Is Not Ready to Concede Florida Governor's Race


(Reuters) - The Democratic candidate for governor in Georgia, Stacey Abrams, has not conceded the race to Republican Brian Kemp, saying on Wednesday there are still thousands of uncounted ballots that could trigger an automatic runoff election in December. Abrams, 44, is trying to become the first black woman elected governor of a U.S. state. She trails Kemp and needs around 15,000 net votes to push him under the 50 percent threshold that requires a runoff under state law. The contest was among the most high-profile of three dozen governor elections held across the country on Tuesday.
