Kemp defeated David Perdue in the party's primary in May, and was poised to defeat Abrams according to recent polls.
Kemp had defeated Abrams for Governor back in 2018, garnering 50.2 percent of the vote.
Abrams has proven to be an unpopular pick for the Dems. Despite her claims to the contrary, Abrams has also repeatedly called into question the legitimacy of the election loss in 2018, even going so far as to say that it had been stolen.
“Is there any scenario under which you would concede that you lost, publicly, in 2018?” she was asked in an interview.
“I acknowledged that I was not the governor,” Abrams replied, citing the beginning of her post-election speech. “What I said is that the process denied access to too many voters.”
Abrams added that she has “never denied the outcome,” but has “always questioned the process and the access.”
“Outcome is about who wins,” she continued, “and no one is entitled to victory, not even myself. I’ve never been unclear about the fact that I did not win the race.”
As Washington Post fact checker Glenn Kessler reports, however, while Abrams did acknowledge in her post-election speech that Kemp was the new governor, she did not concede.
According to the Daily Wire, shortly after the race was called for Kemp, Abrams reportedly called to concede.
This is a breaking story and will be updated.
