Stacey Abrams is Running For Gov. of Georgia Again!

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Stacey Abrams lost narrowly in the Georgia governor’s race in 2018, but the race catapulted her to national prominence as a voting rights advocate, she also happens to be a smart, eloquent, and incredibly likable politician.

Abrams said Wednesday that she would run again for governor in 2022, setting up a high-profile potential rematch with Republican Gov. Brian Kemp.

Three years after Ms. Abrams lost to Mr. Kemp by about 55,000 votes, her candidacy ensures that voting rights will remain at the center of the political conversation in Democratic circles and in Georgia, where Republicans enacted a sweeping law of voting restrictions this year.

Stacey Abrams: Voting rights not a question of partisanship, but of ‘peopleship’

A Ms. Abrams victory would be historically significant, she would become the first Black governor of Georgia and the first Black woman to serve as governor of any state.

“Opportunity in our state shouldn’t be determined by ZIP code, background or access to power,” Ms. Abrams said on Twitter, posting an announcement video with the slogan “One Georgia”.

Abrams is all about protecting our voting rights in this country and upholding our constitution.  She has been embraced by members of both the moderate and progressive wings of the Democratic Party. She always emphasizes cross-racial voter turnout in Georgia, and the continued attempts by Republicans to reduce voter turnout.
