Georgia Democrat gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams characterized her state as “the worst to live” at a gala over the weekend.

Abrams, who unsuccessfully ran for governor in 2018 and never conceded, is poised to face off against Republican Brian Kemp once again this November but her comments about Georgia may come back to haunt her.

According to The Daily Wire:

“I am tired of hearing about how we’re the best state in the country to do business when we are the worst state in the country to live,” Abrams told the Peach State party faithful.

Abrams, who immediately acknowledged that her opponents could use the statement against her, was reacting to Georgia Republicans’ long-running claim that the state is the best in the nation for doing business. She then listed several categories in which the state does not stack up well.

“Let me contextualize,” Abrams said. “When you’re No. 48 for mental health, when we’re No. 1 for maternal mortality, when you have an incarceration rate that is on the rise and wages are on the decline, then you are not the No. 1 place to live.”

“Brian Kemp doesn’t care about our families or else he would be doing more to make sure that they were taken care of,” Abrams said. “Instead, in the midst of COVID, he passed a law to protect our companies but did nothing to protect our communities.”

Abrams is running unopposed for the Democrat gubernatorial nomination.

  1. No one is forcing Stacey Abrams to remain in Georgia! Lord knows, we don’t want her or anyone like her. Hey, Stacey, (to borrow a phrase from the past) DELTA IS READY WHEN YOU ARE!!!

  2. Stacy Abrahms?,…. can they even afford to feed that cow?,…. Sorry Cow’s I didnt mean to insult you like that, since you feed me and support me….

  3. Think her brain slipped out through her gap in her teeth. All the things she decries are occurring in cities run by ??? DEMOCRATS!

  4. If it’s so bad, maybe she should move to California and see what bad really is, instead of trying to turn Georgia into California.

  5. LMAO! So the failed at everything Stacy Abraham wants to try and screw up an entire state that she hates???? Sounds more like another brainwashed Biden speech ! And the entire country all knows how that turned into a world wide disaster. Will Stacy be blaming anybody and everybody like Biden? Will her taxes go up and life style of the people go into the sewer like Biden the Buffoon ? STACY ABRAHAMS BUILD A BIGGER DISATER THEN BIDEN CAMPAIGN FOR THE BRAINWASHED IDIOTS!!!!!!

  6. Stacy is proof that Mental health is poor in Ga. So why elect an insane race baiting woman as Gov?

  7. When Stacey Abrams opens her mouth that’s the best thing she can do for the African American citizens of the state of Georgia because all that rolls off of her tongue is Racisum and intitlement statements.Abrams depends on fellow Georgians to not be able to think for themselves. well those days of the Al Sharpton and other racist trouble makers buying local and federal elections with half pints of bonded whiskey and moonshine are over because of better educated younger smarter voter population who have finaly had enough of the Democratic parties false promises and never keep their word and don’t even acknowledge their own voting constituents till the next election then here comes the promises’s about you and yours and me and mine and saving our Great country. JGB

  8. Worst state….no, but she’d be the worst governor ever….along with Newscum and the other Demonrats.

  9. It never ceases to amaze me, the caliber of persons to whom the left chooses to assign credibility. Stacey Abrams is among the greatest “nothing burgers” in American politics today, and that is a high bar these days. Until the electorate decides to abandon the failed identity politics, we will continue to suffer the moronic leadership that we have today.

  10. what ever dismal areas there are, are because of the commie democrat cult party screwing it up so that there will be feces on all streets of our country!
