Georgia Democrat gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams did not concede the election to Republican Brian Kemp despite trailing by more than 100,000 votes on Tuesday night, telling supporters there were still votes to be counted.
With 99 percent of precincts reporting, Kemp led Abrams by roughly 115,000 votes. More importantly, he had 51 percent of the vote; in Georgia, he'll have to get at least 50 percent of the vote to avoid a runoff.
"Tonight, we have closed the gap between yesterday and tomorrow," she told supporters in Atlanta. "But, we still have a few more miles to go."
Atlanta Journal-Constitution reporter Greg Bluestein reported Abrams' campaign believed there were "tens of thousands of absentee ballots around the state" and that many of them were likely Abrams voters. It cited 45,000 votes in the metro Atlanta counties Cobb and Gwinnett.
Abrams would have to get Kemp below the 50-percent threshold to force a runoff, meaning a huge majority of outstanding votes need to go in her favor.
