Stacey Abrams has announced that she’s running for governor of Georgia.
You may recall that Abrams has spent the last few years since the last time she ran for governor of Georgia refusing to admit that she lost.
That raises some questions about this run.
Stacey Abrams Announces Georgia Gubernatorial Bid
On Wednesday, Democrat Stacey Abrams announced her candidacy for Georgia governor in the 2022 midterm elections. She announced her bid via Twitter.
In Abram’s campaign announcement, the former state legislator claimed that she did her part to help families make it through the pandemic throughout the state of Georgia, stating that she helped residents “be seen and have a voice.”
“My job has been to put my head down and keep working toward one Georgia,” she said in the video announcement.
“If our Georgia is going to move to its next and greatest chapter, we’re going to need leadership,” Abrams said in the video. “Leadership that knows how to do the job. Leadership that doesn’t take credit without also taking responsibility. Leadership that understands the true pain folks are feeling and has real plans. That’s the job of Governor.”

Abrams represented Georgia’s 89th district for the state House of Representatives from 2007 to 2017 and served as minority leader from 2011 to 2019.
People are asking the obvious question.

All kidding aside, Republicans should take Abrams seriously and work hard to defeat her.
