Stacey Abrams, the Democratic superstar from Georgia considered the architect of President-elect Joe Biden’s surprising lead in her state, has a blunt message for Republicans who think President Donald Trump really won there.
“We really won,” she told “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert. “There’s an orange menace of putrescence who will no longer be able to occupy the White House. That’s a big deal.”
Abrams lost a close race for governor in Georgia in 2018 and since then has led the effort to increase voter registration and turnout, especially among people of color and people who had been unlikely voters.
The Trump campaign has filed a lawsuit in the state and has named Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) to lead its recount effort there, where he also lost a race for a Senate seat.
