Carol Anderson: Massive Voter Suppression Could Be Deciding Factor in Georgia Governor’s Race

Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp is holding a slim lead over Democrat Stacey Abrams in the race to be governor of Georgia. Abrams is vying to be the first black woman governor in U.S. history. Despite Kemp’s slight lead, Abrams is refusing to concede because thousands of absentee ballots have not yet been counted. Kemp is currently at 50.5 percent. If he dips below 50 percent, the race will go to a runoff. The Georgia race was marred by widespread allegations of voter suppression carried out by Brian Kemp. DN! speaks with Carol Anderson, chair of the African American Studies Department at Emory University and author, most recently, of “One Person, No Vote: How Voter Suppression Is Destroying Our Democracy.”
