Just to set the stage, here’s where things currently stand in the Georgia gubernatorial race between Gov. Brian Kemp and the state’s self-proclaimed rightful governor, Stacey Abrams:
With just 15 weeks until Election Day, a new 11Alive poll shows a tight race between incumbent Gov. Brian Kemp and Stacey Abrams as they vie for votes in the upcoming election.
Kemp, a Republican, sits at 45% compared to Abrams, a Democrat, who is just one point behind at 44%. Since the numbers are so close, these results should be viewed as effectively a tie, according to the poll.
Only 4% of voters surveyed were likely to select another candidate, leaving only 7% as undecided.
This is one of the closer polls recently released – several going back to the beginning of June have given the governor a larger edge, with the Real Clear Politics average having him ahead by about 4 points.
In an attempt to move the needle a little more in her direction, Abrams took to Instagram and posted this:
That certainly looks familiar!

What a great flashback to this classic (and you know how this worked out for Hillary):

Maybe that approach will work out better for Abrams… or maybe not.
Rip Abrams. She just triggered the Hillary curse https://t.co/vhfzSaI0eb
