Hasn't Abrams polled more votes than any other Democrat in a statewide race in GA history?

Yes in terms of raw votes, but that's not hard in a fast-growing state.

As a technical matter, counties after Crisp County are still not showing up in the map. Interestingly, all counties show up in congressional races.

The "All County Data Entered, Generate Map Links" link isn't on the page for the Georgia races. So I suspect that something happened early once with that feature?
