Apparently Stacy Abrams thinks very little of the state for which she wants to be governor of.
On Sunday, Abrams referred to Georgia as “the worst state in the country to live.”
Despite owning at least two houses in the state, Abrams only doubled down on her derogatory comments on Twitter.
For his part, governor Brian Kemp fired back at Abrams, declaring that Georgia was “the best state to live, work, and raise a family.”
Kemp said that from now through November, he’ll fight to keep it that way for another four years.
Georgians would do well to steer clear of Abrams, as she clearly doesn’t have a very strong opinion of them.

Fox News report on Abram’s derogatory comments towards the state she’s running for governor of:
Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams declared Saturday that Georgia is “the worst state in the country to live,” despite owning at least two houses there.
“I’m running for governor because I know that we have to have a conversation about who we are in this state and what we want for each other and from each other,” Abrams said during a speech at the Gwinnett Democrats’ Bluetopia Gala in Norcross, according to audio posted by the Gwinnett Daily Post.
“I am tired of hearing about how we’re the best state in the country to do business when we are the worst state in the country to live,” she said.
Abrams doubled down on her hateful comments:
GA may be #1 place for biz, but we’re #48 in mental health, #2 in uninsured. #1 in maternal mortality & new HIV cases, #9 in gun violence. For too many, Kemp’s Georgia doesn’t include them. Why? Because #KempDoesntCare
As Governor, I’ll lead #OneGeorgia that’s #1 for all of us.

Georgia governor Brian Kemp fired back at Abrams for her comments:
Stacey Abrams may think differently, but I believe Georgia is the best state to live, work, and raise a family.
And Marty, the girls, and I will work hard every day from now until November to keep it that way for four more years! https://t.co/T77LF1DroP

Republicans are criticizing Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams after she skewered the GOP talking point that Georgia is the "best state in the country to do business" when it is, according to her, the "worst state in the country to live." https://t.co/DBjXqqfgxc

Our friends at the Daily Wire have more on the reaction to Abrams’ spiteful tweet:
“Stacey Abrams may think differently, but I believe Georgia is the best state to live, work, and raise a family,” Kemp tweeted.
Other Twitter users were more harsh.
“Stacy, please, we beg you, move to California or something…,” tweeted LibertarianForever.
“Stacey Abrams, don’t let the door hit you where the good Lord split you,” tweeted Paul V Kelly Sr.
After her loss to Kemp in 2018, Abrams decried voter integrity measures passed by the state legislature, saying they would disenfranchise black voters. But early voting turnout in the primary shows that is not the case.
Stacy, please, we beg you, move to California or something…

Stacey Abrams just said, "Georgia is the worst state in the country to live." Why would anybody vote for somebody who hates their own state?

Soooo, Stacy Abrams claims that Georgia is the worst state to live in, while trying once again to be the Governor. Why the hell would we Georgians want someone who hates our state, to be Governor?

If Stacey Abrams despises Georgia so much she should resign as governor.

Stacey Abrams said that Georgia is the "worst state in the country."
She's running for Georgia Governor.
Does she want to lose, or is that her new slogan?
"Elect the worst governor for the worst state. Vote for me, Stacey Abrams."
She’s DEAD WRONG!
