WATCH: Stacey Abrams Suggests Georgia Governor Race is Headed For Run-Off in Rousing Speech

Despite the vote showing her opponent in the Georgia Governor race, Brian Kemp (R), slightly clear of the 50 percent barrier required to avoid a runoff as of 2:00 a.m. ET Wednesday, Stacey Abrams (D) seemed confident that the hotly-contested campaign is headed for a runoff.

In a rousing speech to supporters at her campaign headquarters, Abrams appealed to Georgia voters who did not cast their ballot for her on Tuesday — and suggested they will get a second chance on Dec. 4, the date on which a run-off would take place.

“If I wasn’t your first choice, or if you made no choice at all, you’re going to have a chance to do a do-over,” Abrams said.

Abrams added, “Georgia still has a decision to make. A decision between division and trickery. Or a leadership that defends your rights, your kids, your career, your community, and your right to vote in America! That’s what’s on the ballot!”
