ATLANTA, Ga. (AP) -- The campaign adviser for Republican gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp has claimed victory in the race over Democrat Stacey Abrams.

The Associated Press nor CBS News have called the race either way.

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

At last count, the AP reported Kemp leading Abrams 50 percent to 49 percent, with Kemp holding a 63,000-plus vote advantage.
