Abrams: “I’m simply trying again to do what’s right for Georgia”

Four years ago, Stacey Abrams arrived at the Georgia State Capitol as the House Minority Leader and hoped to make a substantive run for the Governor’s Mansion. Since March 6, 2018, Abrams ran for governor, saw her star shine brighter after suspending her campaign (she never conceded defeat to Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp), launched Fair Fight (an organization dedicated to fighting voter suppression), and was given her flowers after helping register 800,000 voters before the 2020 Presidential Election.

Abrams announced her intentions to run for Governor on December 1st. Tuesday, March 8, 2022, Abrams put pen to paper and successfully submitted her paperwork to run for Governor later this year. She says her platform has remained largely unchanged in the past four years. 

“When I ran for governor in 2018, I ran on a platform of opportunity for wanting to ensure that we expand Medicaid, that we fully and permanently fund education, that we build economic development plans that work for every Georgian,” Abrams explained. “Sadly, those are still the issues we need to focus on. The last four years of inaction and ineptitude by the current governor means that I’m simply trying again, to do what’s right for Georgia. And I believe this time that we’ll get it done.”
