The race for Georgia governor may be the most notable state executive race in the nation.

Republican Gov. Brian Kemp, who beat back a high-profile primary challenge from former U.S. Sen. David Perdue, faces Democrat Stacey Abrams in a rematch of their 2018 duel. Abrams narrowly lost in 2018 and has a huge national fundraising machine. Here’s how the race stacks up in the polls and campaign contributions.

Most polls show Kemp with an edge over Abrams.

Kemp has been raising money for his reelection since first winning the governorship in 2018. Abrams, who faced no opposition in the Democratic primary, has kicked her fundraising machine into gear.
