Appearing on CNN with Jake Tapper, Stacy Abrams predicted victory for Jon Ossoff, and Raphael
Warnock, the 2 Democrat Georgia candidates in Senate runoff races.
Abrams also specifically touted impressive absentee ballot numbers for Democrats, including 85k that
she says did not vote in the general election.
Tapper asked Abrams “Democrats have won just one of the eight statewide runoff elections held in
Georgia since 1988. Some Republicans are worried that President Trump’s continued baseless claims
of a rigged election might discourage their voters from showing up this time. Do you think that is real
or Democratic wishful thinking?”
“Democrats are prepared to win this election,” Abrams replied “This is the first runoff where we have
the level of investment and engagement that it takes to win a runoff. We know from the numbers we
are in a good place..
“1.2 million absentee ballots have been requested thus far,” she continued “and just to put that into
context, 1.3 million were requested for all of the general election. Of that 1.2 million, 85,000 of those
applications are from voters who does not vote in the general election and disproportionately between
18 and 29 and disproportionately people of color.”
“That signals that we understand that we may need to make a plan to vote and deliver this election,”
