On Thursday Vice President Mike Pence held a rally for Kemp in Dalton and media mogul Oprah Winfrey held a rally for Abrams in Marietta. Kemp, who has bucked calls to resign or recuse himself, says he is following the law and has made it easier to vote in Georgia. A top Abrams aide said Kemp and Trump have contributed to a poisonous atmosphere, and that Kemp has been silent on previous racially loaded attacks on Abrams.
Former U.S. President and Georgia Governor Jimmy Carter asked Kemp to resign his position as Georgia's secretary of state, saying his role in state government imperiled popular confidence in the election.
Rep. John Lewis (D-Georgia) knows how to have a good time. Abrams will make history if she's elected governor of the state as the first black woman to hold the post.
"Allowing poll managers to verify proof of citizenship would alleviate the severe burden on individuals who have been flagged and placed in pending status for citizenship while still serving the state's interest of ensuring that only United States' citizens are voting", Ross wrote.

"On Tuesday, you can vote for a politics that is decent, for a politics that is honest, for a politics that is lawful, for a politics that tries to do right by people", Obama said after a lengthy condemnation of the all-GOP government that has run Washington since Obama left office last January.
Prominent state Republicans have called the controversy "manufactured" and said it was meant to gin up support for Democrats ahead of the election.
On Sunday, President Trump will also be in Georgia campaigning for Kemp. She also said the election is about issues like expanding Medicaid insurance and focusing state spending on public education, job training and small business start-ups. "I am here today because Stacey Abrams cares about the things that matter".
"Georgia has always been on a path of change and evolution", Abrams said.
Kemp's campaign called the incidents "fake" and blamed Abrams.
