"While we cannot comment on the specifics of an ongoing investigation, I can confirm that the Democratic Party of Georgia is under investigation for possible cybercrimes", said Candice Broce, who works for Kemp.

In 2016, he said a DHS computer made an unsuccessful attempt to breach the firewall guarding Georgia's voter data.

Starting last week, in collaboration with our allies at PowerPAC, PFAW began running a hard-hitting, Spanish-language television ad unmasking Brian Kemp's attacks on public education and his support for Donald Trump's divisive agenda.

The Democratic Party of Georgia called the allegation "100 percent false" and "an abuse of power" by Kemp's office.

Both candidates are being backed by big-name celebrities and political heavyweights: Kemp boasts the support of Heisman Trophy victor Herschel Walker, President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, while Abrams claims Oprah Winfrey and former President Barack Obama.

Their goal is to prevent Kemp, who now serves as Georgia's secretary of state, from declaring the victor of today's election and from being involved in any recounts or runoffs.

"They're both really strict on something I care about, which is abortion and social conservatism", Wallace said.

ASSOCIATED PRESS A rally against "Uncle Sam" was held in central Tehran on Sunday ahead of re-introduced U.S. sanctions. Trump warned that those who don't wind down their economic ties to Iran "risk severe consequences".

Both Abrams and Kemp condemned the robocall. NBC reports that a group of Georgia voters have filed a legal challenge seeking to bar Kemp from certifying election results or other election-related duties. On Tuesday, voters will determine which party controls the US Congress as well as pick governors in 36 states, among them Georgia.

"Defendant Brian P. Kemp is a candidate for Governor in Georgia".

A DHS official said the department is deferring inquiries back to Georgia. "This is another failure of his leadership, and he recognizes that if he got caught two days before the election having exposed so many Georgians, he would lose, so he did what he always does, blame someone else for his mistakes".

Democrat Stacey Abrams says she believes her opponent "cooked up the charge, because he realizes, once again, he left the personal information of six million voters vulnerable". Kemp's first ad introducing himself to Georgia voters featured a gun, a chainsaw, an explosion and Kemp's pickup - "just in case I need to round up criminal illegals and take 'em home myself. Yep". The official declined to say if the agency was investigating.

Winfrey campaigned with Abrams last week and canvassed for the candidate.

Citing a potential for conflict of interest, Democrats, including former President Jimmy Carter, have unsuccessfully asked Kemp to step aside as secretary of state until after the election. Then they could have used the information gathered to alter voter registrations en masse, an action that would potentially compromise the entire election. "You can change voter registration". And on Saturday, a federal judge ruled that Georgia must relax voting restrictions that could prevent more than 3,000 people from casting ballots in Tuesday's poll.
