Georgia Republican Secretary of State Brian Kemp said he is resigning Thursday as the state awaits a final result in the too-close-to-call gubernatorial race between him and Democrat Stacy Abrams. Voters had sued Kemp in federal court saying he should not oversee vote counting in his own election, and now he won’t. Kemp’s campaign claims he has enough votes now to win, but Abrams insists uncounted provisional ballots could give her enough of a boost to force a runoff, which would happen if neither candidate got 50 percent of the vote.
