During a news conference in Atlanta on Thursday, Stacey Abrams' campaign team made it clear that the race for governor is far from over after learning that Cobb County just reported additional advance votes.

"We are not stopping until we are confident that every vote has been counted," said Lauren Groh-Wargo, Abrams' campaign manager. "We need to see lists, we need to see names, we need to see counts of every single vote."

Plus, they said there are additional votes from military and overseas ballots that have not been counted with 1,000 of them in Fulton County alone.

Abrams' legal team intends to file a lawsuit in Dougherty County, where they said absentee ballots were never mailed out.

Abrams' camp has a lot of unanswered questions.

"These are answers that fall at the feet of Brian Kemp," said Groh-Wargo. "He decided to to resign, he decided to oversee his own election. That was not our choice. He owns this and he owes the people of Georgia an explanation."

The bottom line is they believe there are enough votes remaining out there to send this to a runoff. They would need roughly 25,000 to do just that.

Abrams' team is asking voters to go to the Secretary of State's website to see if their absentee ballots have been counted. If not, they want to hear from you.

When asked when we might hear from Abrams herself, her team would not say.
