Fierce campaigning on closing day of Georgia governors race

Tears A Trump supporter cries as he arrives for a campaign rally at Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport in Belgrade Montana

Georgia has had a Republican governor since 2003, and the state has voted for the GOP in presidential elections since 1992.

The state Democratic Party called Kemp's accusation "a reckless and unethical ploy" and said he was using the Federal Bureau of Investigation to support "false accusations".

Their goal is to prevent Kemp, who now serves as Georgia's secretary of state, from declaring the victor of today's election and from being involved in any recounts or runoffs. The calls denounced comments from Tibbetts' family members who said her death should not be used to justify hate against Latinos, the Des Moines Register reported. Thanks to the systems and protocols established by Secretary of State Brian Kemp, no personal information was breached. And Kemp has taken advantage of his situation, attempting to disenfranchise tens of of thousands of voters, shutting down polling locations, accusing Democrats of trying to hack the machines, and refusing to recuse himself from a potential recount even in the face of requests from venerable state figures like Jimmy Carter.

On Thursday, PFAW barnstormed the state with civil rights legend (and PFAW board member) Dolores Huerta and comedian Cristela Alonzo, rallying activists and making sure Latino voters know the power they have to choose Georgia's next governor.

Abrams is in a right race against Donald Trump-backed Republican candidate Brian Kemp.

Finally, Black Panther star Michael B. Jordan hit the ground in Georgia, going door-to-door to encourage Georgians to vote for the Democrat.

The issue delayed Kemp from voting for less than a minute, Charlotte Sosebee, Director of Elections for Athens-Clarke County told USA TODAY.

She has promised to work with any president to advance the state, but her candidacy hinges on young voters, African-American voters, women and new immigrants - basically every group that Trump has attacked and demonized throughout his presidency. The Anti-Defamation League says the website is responsible for similar tactics in other Georgia election races. A representative for the Department of Homeland Security confirmed the agency had been notified, but it deferred to Georgia officials for details. "I ran for the legislature against an incumbent, and just barely beat him, and served two terms in the legislature", Kemp explained on his website.

In 2015, Kemp's office inadvertently released the Social Security numbers and other identifying information of millions of Georgia voters.

A lifelong Georgian, Kemp became a small business owner after graduating from the University of Georgia, earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Agriculture. Those private communications ended up with Kemp announcing, without providing any evidence, that he was launching an investigation into Georgia Democrats for "possible cybercrimes".

A national spotlight is shining on the election in Georgia, where both President Trump and former President Obama visited in recent days to tout support for Kemp and Abrams, respectively. They call it "voter suppression". "You can change voter registration".

In a blow to Kemp, a federal judge ruled Friday that Georgia must ease its "exact match" demands.
