(AP) – Another lawsuit has been filed in Georgia’s unsettled race for governor.
    
Democrat Stacey Abrams’ campaign went to federal court Sunday asking a judge to delay vote certifications by one day until Wednesday. It also asks a judge to require that officials count any votes that were rejected improperly.
    
The suit points to alleged problems with provisional and absentee votes in populous DeKalb and Gwinnett counties in metro Atlanta.
    
Republican Brian Kemp’s campaign didn’t have any immediate comment. It’s previously said it’s numerically impossible for Abrams to force a runoff by closing his margin of nearly 59,000 votes.
    
The Abrams campaign contends thousands of uncounted votes could change the result.
    
Abrams hopes to become the nation’s first black woman elected governor, while Kemp is trying to maintain GOP dominance in Georgia.
