Stacey Abrams campaign reps. speak on plans ahead of GOP runoff for GA governor

(WTVM) - After her win in the Georgia primary governor's election, representatives for candidate Stacey Abrams took time out to speak to the media about her plans going forward.

Along with Abrams' cornerstone of involving every voice in the state, the campaign said that making sure education gets the support it needs in each county is a priority.

A recent poll shows that Georgia voters recognize the Abrams campaign, but some worry that the runoff over the next eight weeks for the GOP nomination could take away some of her attention and hurt her momentum.

"We look forward to the continued opportunity to share our message in contrast with what the other side is offering," said Lauren Groh-Wargo, Abrams' campaign manager.

Abrams is the first African American woman to represent a major political party in a gubernation election.

Georgia Lt. Governor Casey Cagle is facing current Secretary of State Brian Kemp in the Republican primary. The winner of this race will face Abrams.

Voting in the runoff will be held on July 24.
