Can­di­dates fight on in Georgia gov­er­nor’s race

Tri-City Herald - - Obituaries/news -

Repub­li­can Brian Kemp re­signed Thurs­day as Georgia’s sec­re­tary of state, a day after his cam­paign said he had cap­tured enough votes to be­come gov­er­nor. His Demo­cratic ri­val, Stacey Abrams, re­fused to con­cede and her cam­paign de­manded that state of­fi­cials “count every sin­gle vote.”

As the state’s top elec­tion of­fi­cial, Kemp over­saw the race. His res­ig­na­tion Thurs­day morn­ing came as a hear­ing be­gan for a law­suit in which five vot­ers asked that he be barred from ex­er­cis­ing his du­ties in any fu­ture man­age­ment of his own elec­tion tally.
