President Donald Trump gave himself credit for Stacey Abrams’ defeat in last year’s race for Georgia governor. Hillary Clinton said she would have won if not for the nation’s “clearest example” of voter suppression.
The two 2016 rivals for the White House traded shots about Georgia’s gubernatorial contest over the weekend, each focusing on Abrams’ narrow loss to Republican Gov. Brian Kemp.
“She’s their star. And who showed up? Oprah Winfrey, Michelle Obama and President Obama,” Trump said at the Conservative Political Action Conference. “And they campaigned for her, and they worked so hard. And all our man had was Trump. And we kicked their ass.”
“We know, don’t we, that candidates both black and white have lost their races because they have been deprived of the votes they otherwise would have gotten,” said Clinton. “And the clearest example is from next door in Georgia. Stacey Abrams should be governor, leading that state right now.”
