Stacey Abrams is even better at this than O'Rourke and Gillum.

Watching her speak live now, not quite conceding.

3. If you don't know...

Edit: Edited OP so I wouldn't be mistaken for finding fault with either O'Rourke or Gillum. Just saying how Abrams moved me even more than O'Rourke or Gillum, who were both A+.

15. Because Stacey Abrams deserves the praise.

That they're on the same side goes without saying.

5. She's not - could be a runoff if the neither candidate gets better than 50 percent

 

She's not - could be a runoff if the neither candidate gets better than 50 percent.

Not the same situation for O'Rourke or Gillum.

6. Voter supression figured extra in her case.

Of course she's not going to concede when it's that close.

12. We are starting to see a younger bench of Dems form.

 

They may be Dems that didn't win, but that doesn't define them.

14. She didn't concede. She said there our votes (absentee, some precincts) that have not been counted

and she is demanding they be counted. I stand with her. All votes should be counted.

16. Georgia voters file lawsuit seeking to block Kemp from overseeing election results

https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/elections/georgia-voters-file-lawsuit-seeking-block-kemp-overseeing-election-results-n932566

A group of Georgia voters filed an eleventh-hour lawsuit Tuesday seeking to block Secretary of State Brian Kemp who also happens to be the Republican candidate for governor from taking part in any activities related to the election results.

The five Georgia residents want a judge to bar Kemp from having any involvement in the counting of votes, the certification of results or any runoff or recount procedures.

"Defendant's clear bias in favor of his own candidacy demonstrates the truth of the axiom that no man may be the judge in his own case," says the lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia. "This Court should not permit Defendant Kemp to resolve the outcome of the elections in which he is a candidate under those circumstances."

19. At least she sounded like she planned what she was going to say in this important moment

And didn't come out and just riff and then cuss at her audience.

Once again, a sister shows everyone how it should be done - with eloquence and style and passion and grace.
