ALBANY, Ga. (WALB) - A former gubernatorial candidate for the Peach State stopped in the Good Life City on Wednesday.
Stacey Abrams came to give voters in Dougherty County a final push to get out and vote early.
She was also campaigning for Democratic candidates Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff.
Abrams says there’s more at stake than just electing certain candidates during this runoff.
She said Georgia’s future is at stake too.
“We know that Kelly Loeffler said that she doesn’t believe in extending unemployment benefits. David Perdue said he doesn’t believe in direct stimulus payments. Why would you elect someone who does not believe in your relief and your recovery? Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock believe, and they will work to make it so. They will be partners with our new president, Joe Biden, and they will work to help make sure that we all recover, that Georgia has the kind of recovery to put on the path to become a stronger state. But we have to have your voice,” said Abrams.
Abrams has been traveling across the state doing similar campaigns for this election.
Senator Freddie Powell Sims and James Williams with the Dougherty County Democratic Party were also there and echoed Abrams’ message.
