A defiant Stacey Abrams refused to concede the Georgia governor’s race early Wednesday morning, telling her Demorcatic supporters that despite trailing by about 3 percentage points she expected to come back enough to trigger a December runoff.

‘You’re going to have a chance to do a do-over,’ she said, talking to voters in a state where nearly 3.8 million people cast votes in a contest that held the potential for her to be the first black female chief exective of a U.S. state.

Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp, a Republican, led Abrams with 51 per cent of the vote to her 48 per cent. The state’s election law calls for a runoff when no candidate wins an outright majority of votes.

If Kemp’s lead were 40,000 votes narrower, he would be beneath that threshold.

‘Votes remain to be counted,’ Abrams said. ‘There are voices waiting to be heard. Across our state folks are opening up the dreams of voters in absentee ballots, and we believe our chance for a stronger georgia is just within reach.’

Tens of thousands of absentee votes were mailed to Georgia election officials.

‘I promise you tonight we’re going to make sure that every vote is counted. Every single vote! Every vote’s getting counted!’ she said.
