Stacey Abrams is back. The former failed Democrat candidate for Georgia Governor announced that she will be making a second run at the same office in the upcoming election.

As The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports:

Stacey Abrams launched a campaign for Georgia governor on Wednesday with a pledge to fight for economic equality and expand healthcare access, setting up a potential rematch against Republican Gov. Brian Kemp in one of the nation’s most competitive political battlegrounds.

The Democrat announced her campaign with a video that highlighted her work in the state since her narrow 2018 defeat to Kemp, along with a message that “opportunity and success in Georgia shouldn’t be determined by your ZIP code, background or access to power.”

Her decision, long expected by local Democrats, clears the way for what could be a titanic showdown between two longtime political rivals. That is, if Kemp survives a fight for the GOP nomination first.

Abrams lost to Kemp by less than 1.4 percentage points in 2018, the closest Georgia gubernatorial election in decades, and her refusal to concede defeat because of what she called an “erosion” of voting rights made her an icon to many Democrats and a villain to conservatives.
Abrams will likely face current Governor Brian Kemp, a Republican and critic of former President Donald Trump, in the upcoming race.

If this idiot wins, Georgia will be totally destroyed. It has already been seriously damaged by its Presidential and Senator votes. I can hardly image a worse Governor.

Bruce – have you noticed how, suddenly, Whitmer isn’t doing lockdowns, mandates, or anything else associated with COVID despite the high infection rates as of late? There must be an election for her seat coming soon and she wants to continue her reign.

I just hope the people of Michigan have learned their lesson re: DEMOCRATS. The only good Democrat I can see in Michigan is Mark Hackel, County Executive for Macomb County. He was NOT happy with the Grench’s actions re: COVID.

They have proven they want to make a communist country out of us. do not believe anything they say. Several Judges have already said Idon cannot make laws like he is trying to do with the covid 19 emergency. Going thru these agencies is making laws without having to go thru congress. Executive branch cannot make laws. Agencies cannot make laws either that is what is trying to be done with these mandates. Huray for sane judges.
