ATLANTA (AP) — Georgia’s still undecided race for governor will remain in legal limbo for several more days after a federal court put the brakes on final certification of the vote totals in one of the nation’s hottest midterm matchups.
U.S. District Judge Amy Totenberg late Monday ordered state officials to wait until Friday to certify final results in the race between Republican Brian Kemp and Democrat Stacey Abrams, and take steps to ensure that provisional ballots aren’t improperly rejected.
The ruling in a lawsuit by an advocacy group gave Abrams some hope as she tries to close the vote gap and force a runoff. Unofficial returns give Kemp a slim majority, but Abrams maintains that enough uncounted absentee, mail-in and provisional ballots remain to force a Dec. 4 runoff and breathe new life into her bid to become the first black woman in American history to be elected governor of a state.
