Brian Kemp, the GOP candidate for governor of George, accused his Democratic opponent
Stacey Abrams of trying to get “illegals” to vote.
His comments, made Monday on television’s “Fox & Friends,” They came after the news networked aired video of Adams saying: “The blue wave is African-Americans. It’s white. It’s Latino. It’s Asian-Pacific islander.
“It’s made up of those who are told they are not worthy of being here. It’s comprised of those who are documented and undocumented.”
Asked about the clip, Kemp said: “It means she wants illegals to vote in Georgia.” He called it a “shocking development in the campaign.”
He added: “Her network of groups actually filed a lawsuit that says the same thing.”
“And look, early voting starts in Georgia today. I think hard-working Georgians should decide who their governor is – not people here illegally like my opponent wants.”
Abrams, has called on Kemp, George’s Secretary of State, to resign after a report that his office has kept more than 50,000 people from registering to vote.
"As he has done for years, Brian Kemp is maliciously wielding the power of his office to suppress the vote for political gain and silence the voices of thousands of eligible voters -- the majority of them people of color," an Abrams campaign spokeswoman said.
