Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams conceded the hard-fought governor’s race Friday to her GOP opponent Brian Kemp, but she threatened to bring a lawsuit over Kemp’s “gross mismanagement” of state voting laws in his capacity as secretary of state. The Hill writes:

In an address made while surrounded by supporters Friday afternoon, Abrams said that she saw “no legal path forward” for her gubernatorial bid, adding that she would not use the legal system to attempt to “scheme” her way into office.

Abrams said Kemp had “failed Georgia” and pledged to launch a new group called “Fair Fight Georgia” to promote fair elections in the state.
