Abrams, Kemp set to meet in Georgia governor's debate

Kemp has portrayed Abrams as "too extreme for Georgia" and rails against funding she gets "California and NY".

Abrams, who would be the first African-American female governor in the USA, participated in a protest that included flag-burning at the steps of the Georgia Capitol while she was in college in Georgia, according to a report in the New York Times on Monday.

"This conversation was sweeping across Georgia as numerous organizations, prominent leaders, and students engaged in the ultimately successful effort to change the flag", the statement continues, adding: "Abrams' time in public service as deputy city attorney and as a state legislative leader have all been focused on bringing people together to solve problems".

Georgia's Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams on Sunday said she was "sick and exhausted of hearing about the free market being the solution" to health care issues. The flag prominently featured the Confederate battle emblem, a symbol that has strong historical associations with racism and white supremacy. Georgia's flag was changed in 2001 to remove the Confederate emblem.

"I took an action of peaceful protest", Abrams responded to assertions that the act indicates she is "too extreme" to head the state of Georgia. The Confederate battle flag emblem wasn't fully removed from the state's flag until 2003.

In the center of an Atlanta Journal-Constitution photo chronicling the event was a Spelman College freshman named Stacey Abrams, who, 26 years later, finds herself locked in a race that could make her the nation's first black, female governor - and is unapologetic about her role in the demonstration.

Abrams, 44, has talked about the issue of Confederate memorials as part of the governor's race and has called for the removal of the Confederate carving on Stone Mountain near Atlanta. "Confederate monuments belong in museums where we can study and reflect on that awful history, not in places of honor across our state".

Abrams' criticism of the free market echoes her previous claim about not needing "Conservative values to win in Georgia'".
