Stacey Abrams, winner of Georgia's Democratic primary for governor, said the state being traditionally a deep-red Republican state will not be a roadblock to her becoming governor.
"I think that we are a blue state, we're just a little confused. We haven't had candidates who have done the work of really lifting up every voice," Abrams said Wednesday on CNN's "New Day."
"We're not going to win trying to put together the old guard coalition. We have a new opportunity because Georgia has changed dramatically in the last 15 years. And we know that if we take advantage of that change, we can actually get to victory," Abrams said.
President Donald Trump carried 51 percent of votes in Georgia during the presidential election in 2016, CNN reported.
Abrams won the primary to become Georgia's first female governor nominee from either party.
A number of senators endorsed Abrams during her campaign, including Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., Kamala Harris, D-Calif., and Cory Booker, D-N.J., CNN reported.
