Stacey Abrams, the failed gubernatorial candidate in Georgia, is considering another run for office, and several Democratic operatives are reportedly concerned.
While speaking with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Abrams said that political office is just one tool for her to tackle critical issues and achieve long-term change.
However, she did not mention whether she would challenge Republican Gov. Brian Kemp in the next election. Despite her aspirations, several Democrats are not thrilled with the prospect of her running again.
According to the AJC, more than three dozen Democratic officials, party leaders, and activists suggest that Abrams may not have the same unified support she enjoyed after her first defeat to Kemp in 2018.
Chair of Monroe County’s Democratic Party Yvonne Stuart believes that another charismatic Democrat could take them all the way in 2026. In addition, some Democrats worry that Abrams could lose again in a third election, and the party needs to move forward.
