California’s MANHATTAN BEACH — Stacey Abrams announced on Monday that she is thinking about competing for a position in the Georgia Senate in 2020, for governor once more in 2022, and perhaps even for a president.
The progressive political action committee Democracy for America included Abrams in a presidential poll it released online last week after she gained widespread notice for her attempt to become the first black woman elected governor in the United States.
However, Abrams has mostly remained off the radar in the 2020 race while Democratic activists and funders show a lot of interest in Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke, a failed statewide contender.
When asked if she was thinking about running for president, Abrams responded, “No… I haven’t given it any thought.
She did not, however, completely rule out running for office, stating that “it is too soon after the election to know exactly what I’m going to do” and that “I am open to all choices.”
It seems that Abrams’ more likely course is to take on Republican Sen. David Perdue in two years or to wait for a rematch with Brian Kemp, the candidate she lost to in November, in four years.
From the fringes of a donor gathering here, she told POLITICO of the Senate and governor races, “I am thinking about both.
She declared, “My state is Georgia.” And the improvements I mentioned during this campaign are still the changes I think are required for our state to advance, to serve everyone in our state, and that the problems.
Abrams’ comments came after she gave a speech at a conference hosted by the progressive donor network Way to Win, which contributed almost $22 million to candidates’ campaigns in the 2018 midterm elections.
Abrams resumed her defiant post-election messaging while addressing her supporters in this location, railinAbrams georgiag against what she termed Georgia’s “systematic attempt to restrict the electorate” and voter suppression. She proclaimed, “We won,” listing the accomplishments of Democrats in the midterm elections, such as rising turnout and financing in Georgia.
Abrams declared, “The Deep South is rising again.” “And we won’t stop either,”
Many top-tier presidential hopefuls’ early political activities in the 2020 pre-election period targeted Abrams because of her campaign. Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Kamala Harris of California, and Cory Booker of New Jersey, among other Democrats, hurried to endorse Abrams in a state that increasingly looks like it could go Democratic. Former Vice President Joe Biden and other Democrats also rushed to support Abrams.
According to Abrams, O’Rourke, and Andrew Gillum, who lost the race for Florida governor by a razor-thin margin, “each, in our way demonstrated that there is a much broader electorate that should be engaged in the national conversation than we’ve seen in previous years,” she said in a statement to POLITICO on Monday.
I believe we will be a battleground state for the first time in more than 20 years, particularly for Georgia, she added.
