Abrams ran as a Democrat and had won the first African-American woman governor in America. She lost to Kemp by more than 54,000 votes, but has repeatedly refused to conclude the outcome.

During her campaign, Abrams was backed by big-name celebrities and prominent Democrats like Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama. The results were mired in controversy because Kemp, who was Georgia's secretary of state at the time, oversaw the election.
Civil rights groups have accused Kemp of suppressing low-income people and minorities of their voting rights using the state's "match match" "law. The law requires election officials to flag a voting registration if the identifying information is matched to the voter's information in existing records.
A group backed by Abrams filed a federal lawsuit in January over the alleged voter suppression. Kemp has denied that he was not entitled to his own benefit.
