Stacey Abrams announces she’s running to be governor of Georgia
Stacey Abrams has just announced she is running for governor of Georgia. Abrams, the former Minority Leader of the Georgia House of Representatives for more than six years ran for governor in 2018, losing by a slim margin to then Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp in a race many saw as tainted by his voter suppression actions.
Abrams went on to become a highly-effective voting rights advocate and activist, and many credit her with helping elect Joe Biden president by helping him win the state by registering an estimated 800,000 more voters.
I\u2019m running for Governor because opportunity in our state shouldn\u2019t be determined by zip code, background or access to power. #gapol\n\nBe a founding donor to my campaign:\nhttps://secure.actblue.com/donate/afg22-tw?refcode=120121\u00a0\u2026pic.twitter.com/z14wUlo8ls— Stacey Abrams (@Stacey Abrams) 1638390049
