No Matter the Outcome Today, Stacey Abrams is a Rising Star & Maybe the Governor of Georgia in 2022
More than anyone, Stacey Abrams is responsible for Joe Biden's victory in Georgia and if Democratic senate candidates Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff win today, they too will owe her a debt of gratitude. Since narrowly losing her race with Brian Kemp for Governor in 2018, she has dedicated herself to grass-roots organizing in Georgia, registering hundreds of thousands of new voters. And she has raised a lot of money through her organization "Fair Fight" to support smaller local groups in their organizing efforts.
It's not a secret that she wants a rematch with Kemp in two years, but right now she is focused on the Senate races and she has been a tireless advocate for the Democratic candidates.
Abrams, Washington Post: “My mission and the mission of Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock is to turn out every Georgian who wants relief from covid-19, who understands that $600 is not going to get a family through the winter.” Emphasizing jobs, “justice” and “real health care,” she argued, “We need leaders who actually show up to do their jobs. We have two feckless hypocrites in David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler. They have waffled back and forth on whether they care about the future of Georgia, and they’ve done very little to show any real concern for Georgia lives.”
In years past, the Georgia runoff elections wouldn't even be close. If Ossoff and Warnock win today, it will be a political miracle, one that Stacy Abrams can rightfully claim credit for.
Just prior to Joe Biden's victory in Georgia in November, former national security adviser Susan Rice tweeted, "Either way this goes in Georgia, we owe @staceyabrams our greatest gratitude and respect. Rarely does one person deserve such disproportionate credit for major progress and change."
