Stacey Abrams to make stop in Forsyth County during campaign bus tour
Democratic candidates Stacey Abrams (governor) and Sarah Riggs Amico (lieutenant governor) are scheduled to appear in Forsyth County on Friday, Oct. 26, 2018, as part of a campaign bus tour.
Democratic candidate for Georgia governor Stacey Abrams is scheduled to make an appearance in Forsyth County this week during the final stages of a bitter campaign that has become a proxy for both major political parties’ chances in the Nov. 6 midterm election. Abrams will be at Fowler Park on Friday, Oct. 26, at 10 a.m., as part of a “We Are Georgia” bus tour, along with Sarah Riggs Amico, the Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor. A former state House minority leader, Abrams is trying to become the first black female governor of any state. Abrams’ race against Republican rival Brian Kemp, the Georgia secretary of state, and Libertarian Ted Metz has received national attention, both for Abrams’ potential at making history and for issues reflective of the political climate.
