Stacey Abrams slams Brian Kemp after he accuses Democrats of voter ‘hack’

In a statement, the Abrams campaign called the robo-calls a desperate and "vile" attempt to sway voters using "poisonous thinking". President Donald Trump has rallied in the state on behalf of Kemp, while former President Barack Obama and Oprah Winfrey have made appearances on behalf of Abrams.

In a news release, Kemp's office said the Democratic Party is under investigation for "possible cyber crimes", and that it had alerted the Department of Homeland Security and Federal Bureau of Investigation.

"I heard people were making racist robocalls in my name, against Stacey Abrams, who I am 100 percent for in Georgia", Winfrey said in an Instagram post.

Already a historic matchup, with Abrams trying to become the first black woman elected governor in USA history, it has morphed in recent weeks from a battle of clear ideological differences into a racially charged argument over ballot access and voter fraud.

Democrats immediately cried foul, noting Kemp has offered no evidence for his claims and pointing out the massive conflict of interest in Kemp launching an investigation into the people he is running against in his own election campaign. The party's task was much more hard in the Senate, where Republicans hold a narrow 51-49 majority but Democrats are defending 10 seats in states won by the president two years ago.

They say an email to them from a man not affiliated with the Democratic Party of Georgia is what prompted Kemp's request for an investigation. "We can also confirm that no personal data was breached and our system remains secure". Tomorrow show up and show out, and Vote'. "I don't want anyone to vote for me because I'm black", she told supporters in Savannah on Monday.

The president asserted that if Democrats win, they will work to roll back everything he's tried to accomplish during his first two years as president.

Abrams acknowledges the historic nature of her candidacy.

In Cobb County, just outside Atlanta, Nicole Whatley planned to vote for Abrams, partly because "of this whole social divisiveness that's been going on", she said, as she stood in line to vote outside a library in a cold rain Tuesday morning.

"He is attempting to get the headlines off of his attempts at voter suppression and force attention elsewhere", she said. "I just want to say: Jesus don't like ugly, and we know what to do about that".

Georgians wait in line to cast their votes in the 2018 midterm election at a Gwinnett County polling place in Annistown Elementary School in Snellville, Georgia.
