In the closing days, Kemp basked in President Donald Trump's glow, after a Sunday rally that drew thousands of boisterous Republicans to central Georgia to see Trump deplane from Air Force One.

The two parties were also tangling in several crucial governors' races, including in Midwest battleground states such as Wisconsin, Ohio, Iowa and MI.

Racists are doing whatever they can to cheat in Georgia's closely-watched race that could see the first Black woman governor in USA history. She and Abrams are both black women from MS, and the media titan spoke of the sacrifices their ancestors had to make to obtain the right to vote.

In a statement, the Abrams campaign called the robo-calls a desperate and "vile" attempt to sway voters using "poisonous thinking".

Democrats immediately cried foul, noting Kemp has offered no evidence for his claims and pointing out the massive conflict of interest in Kemp launching an investigation into the people he is running against in his own election campaign. Democrats are expected to pick up several governor's seats across the country, particularly in the Midwest region that helped propel Trump to the White House in 2016.
