“This is not a speech of concession”

Stacey Abrams never conceded her 2018 loss. Now, she thinks she can lie her way out of that fact.

Abrams on CNN this morning: “I, on November 16th, 2018, acknowledged at the top of my speech that Brian Kemp is the Governor of Georgia.”

Abrams on November 16th, 2018: “Let’s be clear: this is not a speech of concession.”


Stacey Abrams did not concede. She even referred to Governor Kemp as the “former Secretary of State” in her speech. Does that sound like someone who acknowledged she lost?

“The simple fact is that Stacey Abrams has refused to concede to Governor Brian Kemp for the past three years, and no amount of revisionist history will make that fact go away,” said RGA Spokeswoman Maddie Anderson. “Abrams began her campaign by spreading fake news to Georgia voters. If she lies about something so easy to disprove, she will lie about anything. Stacey Abrams cannot be trusted.”
