ATLANTA (AP) A campaign adviser for Republican Brian Kemp says the candidate is declaring victory in Georgia governor’s race.

Campaign official Ryan Mahoney made the announcement during a Wednesday afternoon conference call with reporters. Kemp was not on the call.

Kemp has just more than 50 percent of Tuesday’s vote, which would give him the majority threshold needed to secure a victory. The Associated Press has not called the race.

Democratic opponent Stacey Abrams has not conceded the race, and her campaign believes there are enough uncounted ballots to force Kemp into a runoff.
