Republican Governors Association: ‘StaceyWhoever’ is wrong for Georgia

Stacey Abrams and Stacey Evans are two Democrats who want to become Georgia's next governor.

As qualifying winds down in Georgia’s governor’s race, one national GOP group launched a radio and digital ad condemning the two Democrats in the race.

On Wednesday, the Republican Governors Association went on the offensive against both Stacey Abrams and Stacey Evans, two former state lawmakers running for their party’s gubernatorial nomination.

The website where the ad is found, www.StaceyWhoever.com, features silhouettes resembling Evans and Abrams.

Here's the script:

  • Lady 1 (L1): Hey did you hear about that liberal Democrat running for governor?
  • Lady 2 (L2): No, who?
  • L1: Stacey… Stacey something.
  • L2: Well what about her?
  • L1: Well she’s a real liberal.
  • L2: Really?
  • L1: Yeah. State Representative from up around Atlanta.
  • L2: Oh great, another politician.
  • L1: Stacey was for Hillary.
  • L2: Uh-oh, that says a lot right there.
  • L1: Well, she’s a fancy lawyer too from what I’ve heard.
  • L2: Who? Stacey?
  • L1: Yeah, made a load of money off of it.
  • L2: Well not surprising, a lawyer, a politician, sounds about right.
  • L1: Stacey is pushing for more big government programs.
  • L2: Let me guess, she supported higher taxes too?
  • L1: Yep, even wants to expand Obamacare.
  • L2: And make us pay for it, how about that?
  • L1: Just what we need, another politician taking more of our money.
  • L2: You said her name is Stacey right?
  • L1: Yep.
  • L2: Stacey who?
  • L1: Uhh… I can’t remember now, it’ll come to me.
  • L2: Oh well, it doesn’t matter, Stacey whoever is wrong for Georgia

As of Thursday, four Republicans, as well as Evans and Abrams, are seeking to become Georgia's next governor, replacing incumbent Nathan Deal who cannot run for a third term.
