Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams said the alleged “blue wave” Democrats are expecting in the 2018 midterm elections is filled with “documented and undocumented” voters.

“The thing of it is, the blue wave is African American. It is white. It is Latino. It is Asian-Pacific Islander,” Abrams said at a Clayton County campaign office Tuesday in a video obtained by The Washington Free Beacon. “It is made up of those who’ve been told that they are not worthy of being here. It is comprised of those who are documented and undocumented.”

WATCH:

The comments come as the California Department of Motor Vehicles announced Monday that nearly 1,500 customers may have been illegally registered to vote.

Abrams is taking on Republican Secretary of State Brian Kemp in the governor’s race. She has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars of her own money to try to secure a victory, and previously served as the minority leader of the Georgia House of Representatives. (RELATED: Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate Has Accumulated Over $200,000 In Personal Debt)

Kemp is in a tight race, as he sits just a few points ahead of Abrams in the red state, according to Real Clear Politics.
