Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) managed to get Stacey Abrams to admit that the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial election was stolen.
Sen. Cruz asked Abrams, “Yes or no, do you still maintain the 2018 election was stolen?”
Abrams said the election ‘was stolen from the voters of Georgia.’
After her 2018 Election Loss, Abrams Claimed Voter Suppression.
“I acknowledge that former Secretary of State Brian Kemp will be certified as the victor in the 2018 gubernatorial election,” Abrams stated in 2018. “But to watch an elected official who claims to represent the people in this state baldly pin his hopes for election on suppression of the people’s democratic right to vote has been truly appalling.”
The 2018 results for Georgia state Governor shows that Gov. Kemp won with 1,978,408 votes and Abrams had 1,923,685 votes.
Even after Abrams’ loss, she did not concede and told supporters to wait for full counts of absentee ballots to ‘narrow the gap’ according to a report from Vox.
“The unofficial election results show Kemp with a lead of more than 63,000 votes – a gap Abrams has closed from 75,000 since election night – in an election where nearly 4 million ballots were cast. In Georgia, a runoff is triggered when neither candidate secures 50% plus one vote, which Abrams’s team claimed could happen if she gains 25,632 votes,” according to a 2018 report from The Guardian.
Abrams has dismissed accusations from Georgia’s secretary of state comparing her 2018 refusal to concede to former President Trump who did the same.
“Abrams pushed back against that assertion on CNN, noting that hundreds of thousands of voters were purged from state voter rolls before her race went to the ballot box,” The Hill found.

Senator Ted Cruz noted that 56.3% Black Georgian’s voted in the 2018 election for governor and they had the highest registration and highest turnout in 2018.
