Georgia Democratic gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams said that the "blue wave" will be comprised of all types of people, "documented and undocumented" at a campaign event last week with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.). Abrams is in a tight race with Republican Secretary of State Brian Kemp. As of Tuesday, the RealClearPolitics average has Kemp up 2 points, 47.7% to Abrams's 45.7%
"The thing of it is, the blue wave is African American. It's white, it's Latino, it's Asian-Pacific Islander, it is disabled, it is differently-abled, it is LGBTQ, it is law enforcement, it is veterans," Abrams told the crowd.
"It is made up of those who've been told that they are not worthy of being here. It is comprised of those who are documented and undocumented," she said of her constituency.
A local reporter asked Abrams if she stood by what she said about undocumented voters at a press availability earlier today.
"I've never once argued for anyone who is not legally allowed to vote in the state of Georgia to be allowed to vote," Abrams told media.
"Do you stand by what you said?" a reporter asked.
"What I said that day is that this is a state that should be looking out for everyone in our state and I would hope that anyone running for governor should believe in all of Georgia," Abrams answered.
