Stacey Abrams Trashes Georgia In Speech, While Running For Governor Of The State

Stacey Abrams is running for governor of Georgia, but she doesn’t seem to like the state very much.

During a recent appearance, she said Georgia was the “worst state to live in.”

It’s a curious strategy. It’s also ironic, considering she owns multiple homes in the state.

“I’m running for governor because I know that we have to have a conversation about who we are in this state and what we want for each other and from each other,” Abrams said during a speech at the Gwinnett Democrats’ Bluetopia Gala in Norcross, according to audio posted by the Gwinnett Daily Post.

“I am tired of hearing about how we’re the best state in the country to do business when we are the worst state in the country to live,” she said.

Abrams acknowledged such a statement would be “politicized” and further explained that her state has lots of room for improvement on issues like mental health and incarceration.

“Let me contextualize,” she said. “When you’re No. 48 for mental health, when we’re No. 1 for maternal mortality, when you have an incarceration rate that’s on the rise and wages that are on the decline, then you are not the No. 1 place to live.”

Republican Brian Kemp responded:

What is she thinking?

It makes no sense.
