Democrat Stacey Abrams on Wednesday launched a 2022 bid for governor in Georgia, setting up a potential rematch with GOP Gov. Brian Kemp. “I’m running for Governor because opportunity in our state shouldn’t be determined by zip code, background or access to power,” Abrams tweeted as she announced her candidacy. Abrams, the former Georgia House Democratic leader who in 2018 made history as the first Black woman gubernatorial nominee of a major political party, narrowly lost to Kemp by less than 55,000 votes out of nearly 4 million cast in the Peach State’s gubernatorial election.
‘Like Hillary desperately wanting to be President, becoming Gov. of Georgia is clearly Abrams sole mission in life. Problem is not only has she been lying about how she lost the 2018 governorship for 4 years, but there’s that matter of costing Atlanta the All-Star game and her support for Critical Race Theory. Of course, Brian Kemp has his own issue with MAGA zealots still angry at him for costing Trump the state last year. But either way, this race will be interesting and could be a huge omen for both parties in 2024.
