Democratic legitimacy is on the line in Georgia

November 9, 2018 | Media News

Professor Ned Foley’s article, Democratic legitimacy is on the line in Georgia, was recently featured in the opinion section of The Washington Post.

“The Georgia race is close enough that the democratic legitimacy of the outcome depends on how ballots that have yet to be counted are handled. Stacey Abrams, the Democrat, trails Brian Kemp, the Republican. But if the gap sufficiently narrows as additional ballots are counted, state law would require a runoff.”
