Stacey Abrams Announces Second Run For Governor Of Georgia

Stacey Abrams announced on Twitter Wednesday that she is once again running to be governor of Georgia.

“I’m running for Governor because opportunity in our state shouldn’t be determined by zip code, background or access to power,” she said in her tweet.

“What I know to be true is that our values are still strong. No matter where we come from in Georgia, or how long we’ve been here, we believe in this place, and our folks who deserve to be seen and heard and have a voice. Because in the end, we are one Georgia, regardless of the pandemic or the storms, the obstacles in our way, or the forces determined to divide us,” Abrams said in her campaign video.

Abrams has been the presumptive Democratic candidate after narrowly losing the governor’s race to Brian Kemp in 2018. Since then, she has been working with her voter rights organization Fair Fight, which raised more than $100 million and built a statewide political operation that registered hundreds of thousands of new voters in Georgia.

“If our Georgia is going to move to its next and greatest chapter, we are going to need leadership. Leadership that knows how to do the job. Leadership that doesn’t take credit without also taking responsibility. Leadership that works hard. Leadership that measures progress not by stats but by our ability for everyone to move up and thrive. Leadership that understands the true pain folks are feeling and has real plans. That’s the job of Governor,” Abrams said in the video.

Gov. Kemp issued a statement in response to her announcement that reads:

“With Stacey Abrams in control, Georgia would have shut down, students would have been barred from their classrooms, and woke politics would be the law of the land and the lesson plan in our schools. Her far-left agenda of open borders, gun confiscation, high taxes, and anti-law enforcement policies don’t reflect who we are as Georgians. Stacey’s never-ending campaign for power has already hurt Georgia businesses and cost our state millions – all in service to her ultimate ambition of becoming President of the United States. Next November’s election for Governor is a battle for the soul of our state. 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.”
