Georgia 2018: A look at the ads of the campaign for governor

With polls showing a close race for Georgia Governor, the candidates will be looking to convince every voter to choose them at the ballot.

Politically Georgia is aiming to documents the notable ads of the race between Democrat Stacey Abrams and Republican Brian Kemp. Each link shows the ad, says who paid for it and explains the facts surrounding the ad.  If there is an accusation against the other candidate, the response is included.
