Democrats are having a hard time with accepting losing political races fair and square.
The Blaze reported that Stacey Abrams is still telling people she won the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial election (she lost). But while she’s perfectly comfortable undermining the result of her own election, The Daily Caller reportedthat she previously criticized then-Republican nominee Donald Trump for even suggesting that he might not concede if he lost in 2016 (he won).
What is she saying now? Of her 2018 election loss, Abrams had this to say Wednesday: “We had this little election back in 2018, and despite the final tally and the inauguration and the situation we find ourselves in, I do have one very affirmative statement to make: We won.”
Abrams has accused Gov. Brian Kemp (R) of suppressing the vote. Kemp was Georgia’s secretary of state before being elected governor.
Now, Elizabeth Warren is joining in, and calling Abrams the “rightful governor of Georgia.”

As one of the numerous Democratic candidates speaking at Reverend Al Sharpton’s National Action Network conference, and desperate to separate herself from the pack, Sen. Elizabeth Warren echoed the claims of former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams tha
The people in Congress and the White House, frankly, think they can ignore what voters want. They plan to keep enough people away from the polls that they can stay in power. They are working hard to shut down our democracy. Just last year the republicans in North Carolina’s ninth congressional district threw enough votes in the trash to rig an election.
Massive voter suppression prevented Stacy Abrams from becoming the rightful governor of Georgia. They’ll fight anyone who tries to stand up and push back. They’ll do whatever it takes to stop a full and fair count because they know that there’s more that unites us than divides us. They know that a durable majority of Americans believe in the promise of America and they know that if all the votes are counted, we will win every time.
So what’s our job? Our job is to fight back. We need a constitutional amendment establishing a nationally recognized right to vote and a right to get that vote counted.
At the end of February, Warren wrote on her Facebook page, “Voter suppression is real – just look at the corruption in Georgia during the 2018 election. We need to overturn every last voter suppression law that keeps people of color from voting, and we need a constitutional amendment guaranteeing the right to vote for everyone.”
