Statement from Democratic Party of Georgia Chair, Congresswoman Nikema Williams
Gov. Brian Kemp continued his strategy of misleading voters and dodging questions on his extreme agenda and dangerous record during tonight’s final Georgia gubernatorial debate. Kemp fully embraced his extremist policies that risk Georgia’s economy and public safety, and curtail Georgians’ freedom to vote, reproductive rights, and access to health care.
The Democratic Party of Georgia released the following statement in response:
“Once again, the governor attempted to pull the wool over Georgians’ eyes. Under Kemp, crime is rising, health coverage is blocked for half a million people, and our freedom to vote and right to make our own private medical decisions are under assault.
“Georgia deserves more — and we can get more in a governor by electing Stacey Abrams. From helping Georgians save on monthly expenses like education, health care, and housing, to expanding Medicaid for hundreds of thousands, to fighting to repeal Kemp’s extreme abortion ban and permitless carry law, Stacey has plans and priorities to make Georgia safer, freer, and more prosperous for all of us.
“With her winning debate performance, Stacey showed us tonight that she’s the leader who’s done the math, understands the issues, and has the courage, experience, and care to deliver for all Georgians,” stated Congresswoman Nikema Williams, Chair of the Democratic Party of Georgia.
