    Stacey Abrams, who lost her bid for Georgia governor in 2018, on Sunday campaigned for Democrat Terry McAuliffe, who is running for Virginia governor.

    During her remarks, Abrams spoke about voting rights, an issue she has spoken out about since she lost to Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, a Republican, three years ago. Abrams has repeatedly claimed that voter suppression fueled her loss.

    "Just because you win doesn't mean you won," Abrams said while campaigning for McAuliffe. "We've got folks who are ready to take back what they think is theirs, but they are not entitled to our progress. They are not entitled to our justice. They are not entitled to our vote."

    "I come from a state where I was not entitled to become the governor, but as an American citizen and a citizen of Georgia, I'm going to fight for every person who has the right to vote to be able to cast that vote," she continued.

    Fox News reported that Abrams spoke to churchgoers in support of McAuliffe, who is running against Republican candidate Glenn Youngkin. McAuliffe and Youngkin are in a close race less than three weeks before the election.

    Abrams, speaking to attendees at Second Calvary Baptist Church and Faith Deliverance Christian Center, said that "voting is an act of faith."

    Abrams electioneering in churches follows that of Vice President Kamala Harris, who recorded a video that is being played in 300 black churches through Virginia through election day.

    "So when I was growing up, we sang in the choir at Oakland's 23rd Avenue Church of God," Harris says in the video, according to The Daily Wire. "We sang hymns about how faith combined with determination will see us through difficult times. And we were taught that it was our sacred responsibility to raise our voice and lift up the voices of our community. One of the most significant ways I believe that we can each use our voice is through our vote."

    Abrams has maintained for years that the election was "stolen" from her, even though turnout in Georgia increased in 2018 over the state's voting average between 1982 and 2014, according to FiveThirtyEight. The black vote in Georgia, however, saw its lowest share of the electorate since 2006 following Abrams' extensive get-out-the-vote effort in 2020.

    Still, Abrams has become a hero on the Left for her claims about voting rights. Earlier this year, she was instrumental in promoting misinformation about the Georgia voting bill that was passed, calling it a "redux of Jim Crow in a suit and tie." When that misinformation caused the MLB to move its all start game out of Georgia, Abrams denounced the decision.

    The Washington Post at the time fact-checked false claims about the bill, some of which Abrams herself had pushed, ultimately finding that the experts it spoke to said "the net effect was to expand the opportunities to vote for most Georgians, not limit them."

    Specifically, the Post found that while Biden and others claimed the new law "ends voting hours early so working people can't cast their vote after their shift is over." As the Post noted, the new law does no such thing.

    Critics of the bill also falsely claimed the new Georgia bill would prohibit food or drink from being passed out to people waiting in line to vote. As The Daily Wire previously reported, the bill does not prevent people waiting in line to vote from receiving food or water, but politicians and their staff cannot provide it in an effort to secure votes. Poll workers can pass out water or food as they see fit.
