Your daily 60-second news recap.
Gubernatorial candidates, Stacey Abrams, and Brian Kemp went toe-to-toe during the Georgia governor’s debate.
Abrams came prepared, questioning Kemp on the governor’s responsibility to provide living wages and his nonexistent plan for healthcare.
One of the biggest moments of the night was the debate’s moderator, Lisa Rayum, asking Kemp if voter suppression was happening in Georgia.
Kemp denied the allegations.
Abrams also addressed the story about her burning a Georgia state flag— which conveniently hit the news this week. During the debate, she stated: “26 years ago as a college freshman (skip to)… I took an act of peaceful protest, I said that that was wrong and 10 years later my opponent Brian Kemp voted to remove that symbol.”
Many declared Abrams the clear winner— a candidate with a real plan for Georgia and the character to lead.
