On Sunday, Democrat darling and candidate for governor in the state of Georgia, Stacey Abrams, spoke with campaign cheerleader, and host of NBC’s Meet The Press, Chuck Todd. During their discussion, Todd asked Abrams about the effects the damage from Hurricane Michael might have on early voting in the state. In response to Todd’s question, Abrams began to list the counties in the state who were most impacted by the hurricane.
Unfortunately, the woman who believes she is most qualified to be the CEO of the state of Georgia isn’t even sure about which counties were most affected by the hurricane. That didn’t matter to Abrams, however, as she just started making up names for counties that don’t even exist in the state.
Abrams responded to Todd’s question, “What do you know about the area—uh, how things are going? Are they ready to worry about early voting yet, or do they need to worry about getting the power on? Abrams responded by saying, “I think it’s gonna be a combination—areas like Albany, or Glasgow County(?) Terrell and parts of southwest Georgia, were very strongly devastated.”
The only problem is, there’s no such thing as “Glasgow County”. Shouldn’t any candidate running for the CEO of a state, at least know the names of the counties in their state? And if they don’t know, should they be making up names of counties?
So on Meet the Press, Stacey Abrams made up a Georgia county. Perhaps she can find some voters there. Glasgow County is not a place in Georgia. Also it is really rich that she's on Meet the Press attacking Brian Kemp while he was in South Georgia making sure local polling places would actually be able to conduct the election.

Making up names of counties in the state she’s running for governor in, isn’t her first major misstep.
Only two weeks ago, Abrams was caught on video describing the “blue wave” to include many groups including the “undocumented” We understand the blue wave to mean a win at the ballot box for Democrats. How does a candidate advocate for “undocumented” people to vote, and even register in the polls in the red state of Georgia?
