Stacey Abrams Announces Campaign for GA Governor and Trump Has Some Thoughts

( )- Georgia’s most famous 2018 loser announced that she plans to lose another bid for governor of Georgia in 2022.

Democrat “star” Stacey Abrams, who lost to Brian Kemp in 2018, announced her second bite at the apple on Wednesday, posting a video on Twitter claiming she was running again to show that “opportunity” shouldn’t be decided by “zip code, background, or access to power.”

Her 2018 defeat showed that opportunity for Democrats isn’t decided by political success.

Stacey Abrams is Exhibit A that, for Democrats, failure is a resume enhancer.

Abrams never conceded the 2018 race and has repeatedly peddled the Big Lie that she actually would have won if it wasn’t for Brian Kemp purging the Georgia voter rolls of dead people and people who moved out of the state.

But Stacey’s loss in Georgia was a big win for her politically. Just months after her defeat, Abrams was tapped to give the Democrat response to President Trump’s 2019 State of the Union Address. During the 2020 primaries, every Democrat presidential candidate took a pilgrimage to Georgia to kiss Stacey’s ring. The candidates also felt duty-bound to declare that she was the true winner in Georgia, deprived of her victory by those racist Republicans and their “voter suppression.”

The Democrats’ promotion of this sore loser was so intense, she was floated as a possible running mate for Joe Biden.

In response to the news that Stacey was tossing her hat back into the ring, former President Trump released a statement labeling her “Stacey ‘The Hoax’ Abrams.”

Trump, who was not on the ballot in 2018, said he “single-handedly” beat Abrams in 2018 and he will beat her again in 2022.

Then Trump tossed a wrench in things by shifting his focus away from Stacey and onto Republican Governor Brian Kemp, arguing that the MAGA base won’t vote for Kemp because of “what he did with respect to Election Integrity.” Not the smartest move.

The last time MAGA supporters were urged not to vote for the Republican candidates in Georgia, the entire country paid a hefty price and got saddled with a Democrat majority in the Senate.

But Abrams choosing to run in 2022 rather than waiting until 2026 may be a bad idea. During the 2018 midterm elections, the Democrats had the wind at their backs, and still, Abrams lost. In 2022, Democrats are facing nothing but headwinds.
