Georgian Governor Brian Kemp (R-GA) faced off against Democratic opponent Stacey Abrams in their second gubernatorial debate on Sunday night where Abrams did her best to distance herself from defunding the police; it was quickly fact-checked on Twitter.
RNC Research posted a clip with the following message:
Stacey Abrams tonight: “I’ve never said that I believe in defunding the police.”
Stacey Abrams in 2020: “We have to reallocate resources, so yes” I support defunding the police.

Despite record-breaking early voter turnout, Abrams is also still pushing her voter suppression myth.
“Let’s be clear, that the voter suppression that I’m talking about is being felt by Georgians every single day,” she said.
From Fox 5 Atlanta:
After two weeks, Secretary of State Office Chief Operating Officer says over 1.6 million Georgians have voted – more than 1.5 million in-person and over 155,000 via absentee ballot.
As of Friday, the number of early voters was 36% higher than the same time during 2018’s midterm election.
“One in five active voters have already gotten their vote in, and we will hit the 2-million-mark next week,” said Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger in a statement. “The strength of our voter registration system and our county election directors are on full display.”
