"So we went back to what Abrams said and did How was her approach similar and how is it different from member station? W. Abe in Atlanta, Emma hurt reports Donald Trump Jr came to Georgia days after the election for a rally with about 100 supporters. Right. He and other pro Trump leaders made claims of voter fraud. They've yet to prove. The president's son said He'd quote lost all faith in the process. But I think the number one thing that Donald Trump can do in this election is fight each and every one of these battles to the death s o that we get full transparency in the process. Two years earlier, a different campaign held a different kind of Atlanta event. Stacey Abrams had stayed quiet for 10 days after the election while her campaign focused on getting more absentee and provisional ballots counted. I acknowledge that former Secretary of State Brian Kemp Will be certified as the victor and the 2018 gubernatorial election camp oversaw their election. A secretary of state and Abrams had been loudly critical of his policies. This, she said, was not a concession speech. You see, I'm supposed to say nice things and accept my fate. They will complain that I should not use this moment to recap what was done wrong or to demand a remedy, and I will not concede because the erosion of our democracy is not right. At the time. Kemp spokesman called the non concession a quote, disgrace to democracy. That spokesman was Ryan Mahoney, who is still a senior strategist for now governor camp. The numbers were undeniable. Abrams lost by about 55,000 votes and never did concede. She accused camp a voter suppression, which Mahoney says just isn't true. However, voter suppression does exist, he says, and so, too does voter fraud. Stacey Abrams said that she had questions and she wanted to count the votes, etcetera, etcetera, so that that same opportunity and process should be afforded to the president as well. The Trump campaign has filed one lawsuit in Georgia and it was dismissed the next day. State elections. Officials have said there's no evidence of widespread fraud, but they opted for the recount to try to instill confidence in the results. Temp declined to address any comparisons of 2022 2018. Abrams says. The two situations are opposites. What we asked for starting on November 6th through November, 16th was that every vote cast could be counted. That should always be the mission. What we're hearing now is that they don't want every vote to count. There's another big difference between Abrams's refusal to concede and Trump's, says Sarah Tindall Gazelle, the former voter protection director for the Georgia Democratic Party. Abrams didn't actually challenge the results of her election and through a massive federal lawsuit that's still in the courts is instead seeking to reform the system nobody ever saw to overturn. The results of the election. We sought to improve the mechanisms by which elections will be conducted moving forward, and that's the point. The politicization of our elections, which have always been non partisan concerns me, Edna Peta's theoreticians and voting rights director at the Brennan Center for Justice. It's going to be like some political script that you know you lose. You allege this And that's where I think it calls upon the voters to be demanding a bit more of our politicians that they be more good faith. Make sure they're providing evidence, she says, and proposing a solution to make the system better. So far, she says. The president has offered neither for NPR news. I'm Emma hurt in Atlanta.
