Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams declared Saturday night that her state, the state of Georgia, is “the worst state in the country to live.”
Today’s progressive left-controlled Democratic Party is marked by its intolerance and apparent hatred for America, all in the name of building a better America, but it’s rare that a candidate so openly basks in the negativity the party seems to thrive on while running for office.
Well, it seems Abrams forgot to apply the prerequisite filter of deception while speaking at the Gwinnett Democrats’ Bluetopia Gala in Norcross.
“I’m running for governor because I know that we have to have a conversation about who we are in this state and what we want for each other and from each other,” Abrams said Saturday evening, according to the Gwinnett Daily Post.
“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,” she said.
“Let me contextualize. When you’re number 48 for mental health, when we’re number 1 for maternal mortality, when you have an incarceration rate that’s on the rise and wages that are on the decline, then you are not the number 1 place to live,” Abrams added. “Georgia is capable of greatness, but we need greatness to be in our governor’s office. We need someone who actually believes in bringing all of us in there together.”
Now worth an estimated $3 million despite being in serious debt just a few years ago, Abrams owned at least two houses in Georgia as of last year, according to Fox News. Talk about failing upward, this good fortune being in large part a byproduct of losing the 2018 gubernatorial election to Republican Gov. Brian Kemp.
Abrams appeared at the gala with fellow Democrat U.S. Sens. Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, yet it’s not likely that any media figure will ask the senators if they agree with Abrams’s assessment of their state.
She also continued her campaign of negativity online:
GA may be #1 place for biz, but we’re #48 in mental health, #2 in uninsured. #1 in maternal mortality & new HIV cases, #9 in gun violence. For too many, Kemp’s Georgia doesn’t include them. Why? Because #KempDoesntCare
As Governor, I’ll lead #OneGeorgia that’s #1 for all of us.

As for Kemp, he can recognize good fortune when he sees it, taking to Twitter to respond: “Stacey Abrams may think differently, but I believe Georgia is the best state to live, work, and raise a family. And Marty, the girls, and I will work hard every day from now until November to keep it that way for four more years!”

As for the negativity, Abrams made voter integrity her calling card after losing in 2018 and challenged Republican efforts to clean up the voting process in the state arguing that the GOP was engaging in voter suppression of minorities. Yet, in last week’s primary elections, with those laws in place, Georgia saw a record turnout at the ballot box.
Here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story from Twitter:
Stacy, please, we beg you, move to California or something…

Weird considering GA is one of the states people are fleeing to from states like NY. https://t.co/626xE6qTu6
