Abrams seeks to invest to build inclusive economy in Georgia


Associated Press

ATLANTA (AP) — Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams says it’s time for Georgia to use its budget surplus to invest in its residents. Abrams said in an Atlanta speech Tuesday that Republican Gov. Brian Kemp has been hurting the state by prioritizing low taxes and low spending. She’s also backing legalizing sports and casino gambling to fund an expansion of college scholarship programs. Abrams also argues that abortion restrictions and loose gun laws threaten Georgia’s economy, weaving in multiple themes. Kemp hopes the economy is an especially potent issue for him in Georgia as he points to billions of new investment in the state under his administration. He plans to unveil his own plans for Georgia’s surplus on Thursday.
