The media remains conspicuously silent about Stacey Abrams’ claims that she won the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial election despite losing to Republican Brian Kemp by 55,000 votes.
Abrams suspended her campaign after every country in Georgia certified their votes. However, the obstinate Democrat refuses to concede defeat to Gov. Kemp to this day.
Abrams’ latest disinformation campaign concerns the status of Georgia’s all-important two runoff elections for the U.S. Senate. Thankfully, Fox News contributor Karl Rove had a payload of knowledge bombs waiting to jettison on Abrams. The campaign guru went so far as to say Abrams is “either misleading or she’s uninformed.”
On Monday, the former gubernatorial candidate said there’s an upward trend for Democrats so far.
Asked by Fox News’s Martha MacCallum how Republicans are feeling in the state, Rove said, “Well, I think pretty good,” before pivoting to address Abrams’s numbers.
“She is either misleading or she’s uninformed,” Rove said. “She just said that there were 1.2 million people who’d requested a ballot, a mail-in ballot for the runoff, and that 1.3 million had done so in November. That’s not correct.”
He went on to explain: “In November, 1,740,795 people requested a mail-in ballot; 1,362,369 — actually exercised it, voted by mail, so today, the requests are half a million less, a third less than they were for the November election, and what you also need to remember is 600,000 of the people on the list for mail-in ballots, 600,000 of that 1.7 million are automatically on the list. They are on the list for a long time. They sign up for permanent mail-in ballots, so they’re counted as a request, but we don’t know whether or not they are actually going to vote.”
