In one of the country’s closest-watched and most contested races, on Tuesday, Democrat Stacey Abrams and Republican Brian Kemp will go head-to-head in their bid to become the next governor of Georgia. If Abrams clinches more than 50 percent of the vote today, she plans to support the expansion of Medicaid, listen to the needs of underrepresented and discounted communities, and fight for criminal-justice reform as the first black woman governor in U.S. history. If Kemp is elected, the Trump-endorsed secretary of State will bring his “politically incorrect” brand of conservatism to a seat that Republicans have held for the past 15 years.

Abrams’s campaign strategy has centered on growing and mobilizing the Democratic base — especially those who are young and non-white — rather than winning over moderate Republicans and Independents. Still, the Democratic candidate has gained the support of a few conservative women, who are speaking up on social media about their intent to vote for Abrams. While some have condemned Kemp’s close alliance with Trump, and others have pointed to his alarming record of racist voter suppression as the reason behind their decision to vote for people over party. Per a recent NBC News/Marist poll, Abrams currently has 55 percent of the women’s vote to Kemp’s 41 percent — not an insignificant gap. (Kemp has more support from white women with a college degree, though — to Abrams’s 47 percent, he has 51 percent. Black women overwhelmingly support Abrams.)
