Stacey Abrams, the Democratic candidate in Georgia’s gubernatorial race, criticized Republican Governor Brian Kemp for his opposition to legalized sports betting, saying the state is losing potential tax revenue to neighboring Tennessee.

In a move timed to the start of the college football season, the Abrams campaign on Monday released an online ad aimed at sports fans and showcasing the popular University of Georgia Bulldogs football team.
