Stacey Abrams has found herself on Monday defending an assessment she made at the Gwinnett Democrats’ Bluetopia Gala in Norcross on Saturday night about the Republican party’s record in Georgia.
Abrams, the Democrats’ nominee for governor, attacked the record of Gov. Brian Kemp, as well as Republicans in general, during their time leading the state. She pointed to a mantra Republicans have touted for years — Georgia is the No. 1 state to do business — and contrasted it to issues such as mental health care, maternal mortality, wages and incarceration.
