(Forsyth County, GA) The Forsyth County Democrats just announced that gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams (D) will attend a rally in Cumming next month, the day before a fundraiser is being held in Forsyth County for the incumbent Gov. Brian Kemp (R).

Abrams will be the featured guest at the One Georgia Assembly on Sunday, Sept. 18 at the FoCAL Center (1150 Dahlonega Hwy in Cumming). The event will be held from 2 p.m. until 5 p.m. and is hosted by the 6th Congressional District. Members from all six counties that make up the 6th District will attend.

The event is free and open to the public.

“The contrast of Abrams coming to Forsyth County to engage with voters at a public and free event while Kemp wishes to only address those voters who can afford to engage with him should be all that voters need to know about what matters most to each candidate,” said Forsyth County Democrats and 6th Congressional District Chair Melissa Clink.

The fundraiser for Kemp will be held on Monday, Sept. 19 at the Reid Barn (6844 Majors Road) from 6 p.m. - 7 p.m.

The spokesperson for the Kemp campaign said last week they are looking forward to sharing their message with residents of Forsyth County.

“Our campaign is laser-focused on building the resources and support necessary to win in November and stop the disastrous Biden-Abrams agenda from taking hold in Georgia," stated Tate Mitchell, the press secretary for Kemp’s reelection campaign.

“Last night’s energetic meeting reminded our Forsyth Democrats that we've been up against tough odds before and have come out victorious,” said Clink of the Forsyth County Democrats. “With hard work and hundreds of volunteers working together to encourage every eligible voter to vote in this election we know we can repeat the success of 2020 and the 2021 senatorial runoff.”

Clink also said many of the delegates from the 6th District will head to Columbus for the Georgia Democrats State Convention on Sat., August 27.
