Abrams goes to DC to discuss potential 2020 Senate bid

Source: Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Stacey Abrams met with leading Senate Democrats in Washington this week to discuss a potential 2020 challenge to U.S. Sen. David Perdue as she weighs her next step.

The Democrat met separately on Thursday with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Sen. Cortez Masto, who heads the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, according to an aide.

Abrams cemented her status as the state’s most prominent Democrat during her campaign for governor against Republican Brian Kemp. After her narrow defeat, she refused to formally concede defeat and made clear she would seek another political office.

She’s given herself until the end of March to decide whether to run against Perdue, one of Donald Trump’s staunchest allies, or prepare for what could be a rematch in 2022 against Kemp. In a Monday interview on WABE, she outlined three criteria to help make that decision.

2. She has to go for it.

She's one of the most brilliant minds I've seen. Would be a powerful voice from the start in the Senate.

6. My humble opinion

She should wait and run for Governor again, she will win.

7. I'm torn (I don't live in Georgia, so just an outsider's opinion).

Flipping a Senate seat with the Senate as close as it is would be huge - but getting another governorship and a chance to rectify some of the voting abuse that's going on, might actually be a bigger deal - especially in Georgia, where it's been so awful. If it hadn't been for disenfranchisement, it's very likely Wisconsin would have gone to Hillary (and maybe Michigan too).

15. Absolutely!


With some legal help and a national spotlight on the Sec of State to minimize the shenanigans she can win. She was very impressive!

11. I'd rather see her as Governor, but this is exciting. I hope she runs.

I hope she has a good chance, too. I'm not familiar with how popular Perdue is there.

She's exceptional. She'd be a real asset to the Senate.

12. My first thought was Jack Abrams and I thought just how low can the trump party go?

something must have caused a cranial short circuit whereall I can think of is how bad TRUMPUBLICANS are.

Good luck Stacey Abrams.
