Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams spoke at the Westgate Mall Shopping Center on Friday for her Early Voting Bus Tour.

Stacey Abrams’ supporters gathered under the pavilion at the closed Home Depot in the Westgate Mall Shopping Center on Friday for Abrams’ Early Voting Bus Tour.

“In four days, we get to stand up on Nov. 6, and we get to say this is who we are because we are Georgia,” Abrams said during the rally.

The rally included speeches from Dawn Randolph, candidate for public service commissioner, U.S. Representative John Lewis and lieutenant governor candidate Sarah Riggs Amico.

Lewis said to supporters at the rally that they should tell everyone they know to go vote.

“When you go to church on Sunday, tell people to go to the polls and vote,” he said. “We were able to elect Barack Obama, right? We can elect Stacey, right? Let’s do it!”

Amico said she doesn’t think Georgia is a red state.

“I think Georgia is a blue state with a turn out problem,” she said.

Amico said she is proud of running a positive campaign and of bringing new voters into the electorate.

“I’m encouraged to see so many young voters showing up at the polls, and I’m also encouraged to see that we have a growing pool of independent voters who I think will break for democrats during this election,” she said.

Susie Griggs, an Abrams supporter, said that Abrams is a Christian and has her vote.

“We’re here to support Stacey Abrams. We know she’s going to be the next governor,” she said. “She’s for all of the people.”
