Abrams began by saying that she did not believe the polls — which have so far suggested her support among black male voters has dropped off since her last attempt at the Georgia governor’s mansion — meant that there was any real enthusiasm for Kemp.
“I do not believe it’s because of a deep well of enthusiasm for my opponent,” Abrams said, pivoting immediately to make the argument about race and suggesting that black men, specifically, had been targeted and fallen victim to “misinformation” — although she did not clarify what exactly they were being misinformed about.
“We know that black voters are often discounted, and unfortunately, this year, black men have been a very targeted population for misinformation. Not misinformation about what they want, but about why they want what they deserve,” she said. “And my campaign has been the only one that has very intentionally, thoughtfully, and consistently reached out.”
