Gubernatorial Candidate Stacey Abrams is currently attempting to capture the governor’s office for the worst state in the country, according to her own statements.
The Democrat, who is sprinting headling into a spectacular rematch against Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, who has already beaten her in the same race four years ago in an election that she chose to never concede, made the shocking comment on Saturday evening in Norcross at the Gwinnett Democrats’ Bluetopia Gala. The pair are slated to certainly be the main candidates for their party in the wake of the primaries on Tuesday.
“I am tired of hearing about how we’re the best state in the country to do business when we are the worst state in the country to live,” exclaimed Abrams to the Peach State party faithful.
Abrams, who almost instantly then acknowledged that her opponents could use the comment against her, was emotionally reacting to the Georgia Republican’s long-standing claim that Georgia was the overall best state in the country for doing business. She then rattled off several categories in which the state does not do well comparatively.
she can leave anytime.

“Let me contextualize,” stated Abrams in the wake of her insane claim. “When you’re No. 48 for mental health, when we’re No. 1 for maternal mortality, when you have an incarceration rate that is on the rise and wages are on the decline, then you are not the No. 1 place to live.”
Abrams made an appearance at the gala alongside a few of her fellow Democrat U.S. Senators, Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff, and spoke for just about 20 minutes. The vast majority of her speech was entirely devoted to badmouthing the record of her opponent, Kemp, who is currently leading the GOP gubernatorial primary race, according to recent polls, while Abrams is currently the only choice for a candidate that sits on the Democratic docket.
“Brian Kemp doesn’t care about our families or else he would be doing more to make sure that they were taken care of,” exclaimed Abrams. “Instead, in the midst of COVID, he passed a law to protect our companies but did nothing to protect our communities.”
However, the news of her labeling of Georgia as “the worst state” in the country has spread across social media like wildfire.
“Stacey Abrams may think differently, but I believe Georgia is the best state to live, work, and raise a family,” responded Kemp via Twitter.
Many other Twitter users were not quite as nice in their responses.
“Stacy, please, we beg you, move to California or something…,” stated LibertarianForever.
“Stacey Abrams, don’t let the door hit you where the good Lord split you,” exclaimed Paul V Kelly Sr.
In the wake of her loss back in 2018, Abrams decried voter integrity measures put in place by the legislature for the state, stating they would put out Black voters. However, the turnout for this primary has proven just how false that was.
