Stacey Abrams won’t concede: Will there be a runoff election in Georgia? Most hotly-contested race is for the governorship in Georgia and it doesn’t appear that it’s going to come to an end anytime, soon, Democrat Stacey, Abrams Trails, Republican Bryan Camp by a slim margin of 68000 votes, she’s chicken feed as she tries to make history. She would be the first African American female elected to the governor’s office. Votes remain to be counted, there are voices they’re waiting to be heard across hours, folks, are opening up the dreams of Voters and absentee ballots, and we believe our chance for a stronger. Georgia is just Within Reach, strong, lead and folks and fox, make no mistake. The math is on our side to win this election in Georgia. The leading candidate must receive more than 50 % of the vote. To avoid runoff election currently has 50.7 % of the vote. With more honest, I want to bring back, is Zachary peskowitz assistant, professor of political science at Emory University good morning, good, to see you again so absentee votes still have yet to be counted. Is it right at the right thing for Stacey Abrams to do to refuse to concede outstanding particular areas where she’s expected to do quite well, so it is possible that camp will not be able to get to that 50 % applications. Can you explain it in the first round there been there three candidates running for the governor of Georgia. If none of those candidates receive more than 50 % of the vote, then it goes to a runoff between the top two candidates. The runoff would be held on December 4th. It would obviously received an enormous amount of attention from across the United States, with a lot of campaign contribution. Volunteers coming in from all across the u.s. I’ll be a hot or not matter. Campaigning are very interesting for political scientist, since you are so close yet so different and it just speaks to The Divide. Abrams ran Progressive campaign based on Grassroots activism. Camp is a long time Trump loyalists just how polarize are people in the state of Georgia so rapidly growing metropolitan areas, and I think that was reflected in the election results today, Suburban divided, I’m thinking you know, Atlantis huge deal, they’re more inclined to vote. For a Democrat, Suburban areas that have historically been stronger on Republicans, so thanks again Political science professor Zachary Peskowitz comments on whether Georgia’s governor race could turn into a runoff election.
