Leftist Stacey Abrams Who Still Refuses to Conceded She Lost her 2018 Election Announces Another Run for Georgia Governorship
Democrat Stacey Abrams announced her run for governor of Georgia last week just months after the state was embroiled in a controversy in Fulton County that may have been the difference regarding whether Joe Biden or Donald Trump won the state’s electoral votes.
Abrams made the announcement in a Twitter video, saying, “I’m running for Governor because opportunity in our state shouldn’t be determined by zip code, background or access to power.”
The announcement makes Abrams the first Democrat to launch a campaign to lead Georgia in the 2022 election.
Republican Gov. Brian Kemp plans to run for reelection, facing fellow Republican Vernon Jones in the primary.
Abrams ran a hard-fought battle against Kemp for governor in 2018. She later started an organization to increase voter registration in the state.
Abrams believes her efforts were an important part of Georgia’s electoral votes going to Joe Biden in 2020 in a somewhat surprise victory in the traditionally conservative state.
However, Biden’s win by just 12,000 or so votes may have had something to do with boxes of ballots in Fulton County that appeared from under tables after most ballot counters had left. The alleged SuitcaseGate case still remains unresolved as Georgia’s left celebrated turning the state from red to blue in 2020.
Gov. Kemp had the opportunity to investigate and do more about it, but ultimately certified the state’s results in a move that may now come back to haunt him. Although he did later sign an election reform law that is supposed to keep such controversies from happening again.
It was so controversial among Abrams and friends that it led to the 2021 Major League Baseball All-Star Game being moved out of Georgia. Ironically, the Atlanta Braves later went on to win the World Series, with Trump even showing up for one of the team’s home games.
One interesting twist is that Abrams did not concede the race she lost in 2018, claiming election fraud. And Democrats say its only Republicans who don’t accept the results of elections.
In 2020, Trump did not concede, including his loss in Georgia. Speculation continues that he will return in 2024 for a White House comeback.
The major difference, however, is in how mainstream media covers the candidates. When Abrams made her announcement, you would think she had already won. Every mainstream media outlet made it a major segment.
When Trump talks about a comeback bid, mainstream media mocks the possibility, replaying footage of Jan. 6 and talking about white supremacy and racism.
There’s a major mainstream bias on this one, but it’s still up to the voters to decide. Georgia will soon have its chance, but Kemp will also have to face a strong primary opponent who could rock the boat. In either case, Abrams is back, ready to take on Republicans as the Peach State decides on its leader in 2022.
