Abrams, who has yet to concede the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial race, made the claim Saturday night at the Gwinnett Democrats’ Bluetopia Gala in Norcross.
“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,” Abrams said.

“Let me contextualize,” she said. “When you’re No. 48 for mental health, when we’re No. 1 for maternal mortality, when you have an incarceration rate that’s on the rise and wages that are on the decline, then you are not the No. 1 place to live.”
Abrams is worth $3 million and owns two houses in the Peach State, Fox News reports.
Gov. Brian Kemp (R-GA), who may face off against Abrams again depending on Tuesday’s primary, responded to Abrams’ remarks on Twitter.
