Stacey Abrams, a former candidate for the Georgia governorship, is considering running for office again, but her potential candidacy is causing uncertainty among Georgia Democrats.
While speaking with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Abrams stated that political office is just one tool she intends to use to address critical issues and achieve long-term change.
However, she did not clarify whether she will challenge Republican Governor Brian Kemp in the next election.
Several Democrats are not enthusiastic about Abrams’ potential candidacy, and more than three dozen Democratic officials, party leaders, and activists suggest that she may not have the same unified support she enjoyed after her first defeat to Kemp in 2018.
Some Democrats believe that another charismatic Democrat could take them all the way in 2026 and that it’s time for new, fresh candidates to emerge and take the party forward.
