Stacey Abrams Strongly Considering Challenging Trump in 2020

Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams may bypass a Senate run in 2020 and gun straight for the White House, announcing to supporters that she is seriously considering running for President.

Abrams contradicted her own assessment at the South by Southwest (SXSW) conference in Austin, Texas, on Monday, when she indicated the earliest she would run is 2028.

“In the spreadsheet with all the jobs I wanted to do, 2028 would be the earliest I would be ready to stand for president because I would have done the work I thought necessary to be effective at that job,” Abrams said.

Later in the day, Abrams tweeted that “2020 is definitely on the table.”

On the heels of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 defeat, and a party currently cheering for Beto O’Rourke to pull them out of the Trump blues, Abrams, who lost her gubernatorial race in Georgia during the midterms, would make an excellent addition to a tradition of offering up electoral losers as the face of the Democrats.


What Her Campaign Might Look Like

Abrams was chosen as the person to deliver the rebuttal to President Trump’s State of the Union speech in January, a largely incoherent mess that focused on her own loss in the election.

Townhall columnist Beth Baumann said Abrams speech “came off as selfish and rather narcissistic” adding that her stories and statements were “bizarre” and “based on lies.”

Shortly after that, she was featured in a celebratory photo of her speech with another 2020 candidate, Kamala Harris. The photo included a possible opioid addict passed out on a bench in the background.


Additionally, Abrams, like many in her party, fully supports allowing illegal immigrants to vote in elections. We can bank on her appealing to that demographic, no doubt.


What Her Defeat Might Look Like

Abrams already has the Hillary shtick down – refusing to accept defeat, refusing to accept election results, and then blaming everybody but herself for the loss in the months to follow.

Following her loss in 2018, Abrams refused to call Georgia governor Brian Kemp’s tenure “legitimate” and continually claimed he won due to widespread “voter suppression.”


Fox News reports that Abrams “would face withering attacks from Republicans accusing her of being, in essence, a sore loser.”

Isn’t that the Democrat party in a nutshell since 2016?
