STACEY ABRAMS: And tonight, we must be honest, even though my fight, our fight for the governor's mansion may have come up short, I'm pretty tall.


And I, I am here because this is a moment, where despite every obstacle, we are still standing strong, and standing tall, and standing resolute, and standing at our values. And we know Georgia deserves more. And whether we do it from the governor's mansion or from the streets, whether we do it from the Capitol or from our community, we are going to fight for the state of Georgia. That is what we're here for. That is our obligation. That is our responsibility.

Now, tonight, I am-- I am doing what is clearly the responsible thing. I am suspending my campaign for governor.

- We love you, Stacey.

STACEY ABRAMS: I love you, too. I may no longer be seeking the Office of Governor, but I will never stop doing everything in my power to ensure that the people of Georgia have a voice.
