Democrat Stacey Abrams continued to blast the State of Georgia Tuesday hours after she described her home state as the “worst” place to live in America.
“I am tired of hearing about being the best state in the country to do business when we are the worst state in the country to live,” said the Democrat.

Abrams attempted to clarify her remarks when speaking with reporters Tuesday afternoon.
“If you look at his record, if you look at the result, under his four years of leadership, there has been failure after failure,” Abrams said.
Abrams explained that Georgia is “number one in maternal mortality, number two in the number of uninsured. We are number six in infant mortality, number nine in gun violence. We are number 48 in the provision of mental health services. And the challenge I have is that the answer from Republicans, from our former senator to our current governor, is to fight me instead of fighting the problems that are facing Georgia.”
“I get up every morning and I’m just so thankful I’m the governor of this state and serving these resilient people and that we live in the greatest state in the country to live, work and raise our families. It’s disappointing she [Abrams] doesn’t think that but I love it,” fired-back Governor Kemp.
