Democratic Party of Georgia Chair DuBose Porter issues the following statement regarding the state’s May 22, 2018 primary election:
“Last night, my qualified and visionary friend Stacey Abrams became the Democratic nominee for Governor. Along with Sarah Riggs Amico’s successful bid as our Lieutenant Governor nominee, Georgia is poised to have two brave, bold, and brilliant women write the next verse of our state’s history.
“Our Democratic tent keeps getting bigger. Last night, we saw a 150,000 vote increase on the Democratic side since our last contested Governor primary election in 2010. Our greatest responsibility is to work hard and reach out to voters that haven’t been seen or heard. When we do, Democrats achieve amazing things.
“We’ll move out of that big tent and into the Governor’s mansion this November.”
