- Abrams, the Democrat challenging Kemp in the gubernatorial election, retorted to him touting his sheriff endorsements on Sunday night by declaring, “I’m not a member of the good ole boys club. So, no, I don’t have 107 sheriffs who want to take Black people off the streets, who want to be able to go without accountability.”
- In northeastern Georgia, Jackson County Sheriff Janis Mangum, the second elected female sheriff in state history, told Fox News Digital she found the comments “disgusting” and indicative that Abrams didn’t care about law enforcement.
- In neighboring Barrow County, Sheriff Jud Smith agreed with Mangum, calling the comment a “slap in the face” to Georgia voters who backed the sheriffs in their areas and every officer of every race in his department.
