Stacey Abrams’s Campaign Considering Legal Options in Georgia Governor’s Race

Republican Brian Kemp declared himself the winner Wednesday in the race for Georgia’s governor, saying he led Democrat Stacey Abrams by 1.6% of votes after all absentee ballots were counted.

Mr. Kemp, Georgia’s secretary of state, earned nearly two million votes, by far the most of any gubernatorial candidate in the state’s history, his spokesman, Cody Hall, said in a statement late Wednesday afternoon. Mr. Kemp will now begin his transition as governor-elect of Georgia, he said.
