Stacey Abrams Announces Run For Georgia Governor

Abrams announced her run for Georgia governor on Wednesday, putting a potential rematch with Georgia GOP Gov. Brian Kemp.

(Fwrd Axis) — Democrat Stacey Abrams announced her run for Georgia governor on Wednesday, putting a potential rematch with Georgia GOP Gov. Brian Kemp in what could be one of the most closely watched races in the country.

The former top Democrat in the Georgia House of Representatives made the announcement in the Twitter video. She ran in 2018 but lost to Kemp by 1.4 points but her loss made her a key face in the Democratic Party and made her a fundraising force in the state of Georgia.

“So, let’s be clear — this is not a speech of concession, because concession means to acknowledge an action is right, true or proper,” Abrams said when she ended her campaign in 2018. “As a woman of conscience and faith, I cannot concede that. But, my assessment is the law currently allows no further viable remedy.”

With her announcement on Wednesday, Abrams gives Democrats another well-known name after Beto O’Rourke announced he is running in Texas a few weeks ago.

“That’s the job of the governor — to fight for one Georgia, our Georgia,” Abrams said. “And now, it is time to get the job done.”

While Abrams is likely to clear the field for Democrats but the same cannot be said for the Republicans. Former Sen. David Perdue, who lost to Sen. Jon Ossoff at the beginning of the year, is reportedly being lined up to run against Kemp.

With Democrats worried over their fates in next year’s midterms, Abrams running could boost her chances while the GOP remains divided on who to put forward.

“I’m in the fight against Stacey Abrams, the failed Biden agenda, and their woke allies to keep Georgia the best place to live, work, and raise a family,” Kemp said in response to Abram’s announcement late Wednesday.
