GA-GOV: Cook Political moves race to TOSSUP

If there is any gubernatorial contest that excites national Democrats itís this contest between former state House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams and Republican Secretary of State Brian Kemp. The contest is already fully engaged with Republicans taking aim at Abramsí personal finances (and personal debt) and Democrats portraying Kemp as beholden to his campaign donors (i.e., overlooking reports of sexual assault by massage therapists who are licensed by Kempís office). Both parties acknowledge that the contest is in the low- to mid- single digits, but disagree on which candidate is in the lead.

It is worth remembering that Georgia still holds general election run-offs. If no candidate gets 50 percent of the vote, then the top two will proceed to a run-off on December 4. There is a Libertarian candidate on the ballot, so a run-off is not entirely out of the realm of possibility.

1. I hope she wins in the first round.

I think that there's a bad track record with runoffs, with Republicans doing relatively better in the runoff. I think she probably needs a majority in the first round to win.
