Stacey Abrams: Georgia is the worst state to live in

Abrams, the Democrats’ nominee for governor, attacked the record of Gov. Brian Kemp, as well as Republicans in general, during their time leading the state. She pointed to a mantra Republicans have touted for years — Georgia is the No. 1 state to do business — and contrasted it to issues such as mental health care, maternal mortality, wages and incarceration.

“I am tired of hearing about how we’re the best state in the country to do business when we are the worst state in the country to live,” said Abrams before she acknowledged Republicans would attack her for the later part of that statement.

“Let me contextualize. When you’re No. 48 for mental health, when we’re No. 1 for maternal mortality, when you have an incarceration rate that is on the rise and wages are on the decline, then you are not the No. 1 place to live.”
