A Democratic candidate isn’t sorry she once burned the Georgia flag

Trevor Noah Thinks He’s Come Up With The Perfect Way To Stop GOP Voter Suppression

Brian Kemp, Georgia Secretary of State and the Republican nominee for Georgia governor, expressed at a ticketed campaign event that his Democratic opponent Stacey Abrams' voter turnout operation "continues to concern us, especially if everybody uses and exercises their right to vote", according to audio obtained by Rolling Stone.

Abrams, who would be the first African-American female governor in the USA, participated in a protest that included flag-burning at the steps of the Georgia Capitol while she was in college in Georgia, according to a report in the New York Times on Monday. In the 1950s, Georgia added the "stars and bars" of the Confederate battle flag to the state flag.

He is also Georgia's Secretary of State, so he is quite literally overseeing the election for his own governor's race.

WSBTV reports that some 85 percent of African-American voters support Abrams, while roughly two-thirds of white voters' support Kemp.

Reason For "Luke Cage" Cancellation Reportedly Revealed
With mounting, behind-the-scenes tensions between Marvel and Netflix , a cancellation seemed like the only option in the end. Jones (Comanche), Gabrielle Dennis (Tilda Johnson), Mustafa Shakir (John McIver/Bushmaster), Reg E.

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams says that she is "sick and exhausted about of hearing about the free market" when discussing health care policy. He fired back, citing a recent video clip in which Abrams seems to say that "undocumented" immigrants were part of her coalition.

Kemp has portrayed Abrams as "too extreme for Georgia" and rails against funding she gets "California and NY".

Georgia's poor track record on civil rights issues helps to explain why Abrams, throughout her career in public service, has long dedicated herself to franchising new voters.

Rolling Stone magazine released an audio clip in which Kemp appears to say that he is anxious about an "unprecedented" number of absentee ballot applications after Abrams' campaign focused on turning out its base with absentee ballots.

LeBron James loses in LA Lakers debut despite sensational start
Optimism is high for the future of the Lakers, but expectations should be tempered a bit at least for this upcoming season. Although the Lakers fast-paced offensive attack worked reasonably well, it wasn't enough to pull off the win on the road.

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.

Early voters particularly concerned Kemp who fretted about "the literally tens of millions of dollars that they [the Abrams camp] are putting behind the get-out-the-vote effort to their base". But you still need to vote on November 6, and you still need to stay informed about the candidates in the upcoming elections.

In fact, it took another decade for a new governor, Roy Barnes, to finally lay the Confederate symbol-adorned flag to rest in 2003, but just one year later he, too, lost the governor's office after being ousted by Republican Sonny Perdue.
