ABRAMS 2020? Stacey Abrams Says Georgia ‘SUCCESS’ Shows She’s ‘Capable’ of Running for President

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.27.19

Failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams touted her electoral “success” Wednesday morning; saying her botched bit for governor makes her “just as capable of becoming President of the United States as anyone running.”

“I am deeply appreciative of those that are encouraging me to run for a variety of offices. I will say the presidency wasn’t top-of-mind to begin with, but I think the success I had in our election, transforming the electorate… positions me to become just as capable of becoming President of the United States as anyone running,” said Abrams.

“My responsibility is to make sure I’m running for the right reasons at the right time, and this is not a conversation I was having with myself last year,” she added.

ABRAMS CLAIM: Stacey Abrams Says She Was Nearly Blocked from Voting in Georgia Election

Democratic candidate in Georgia’s gubernatorial race Stacey Abrams claimed she was nearly blocked from voting this week; doubling-down on her previous comments that “voter suppression” led to an “unfair” midterm election.

Abrams was speaking with NPR when she stated an Election Day staffer attempted to stop her from casting her ballot; saying “The day I voted, I had to correct the poll worker who said I had filed for an absentee ballot.”

“I did it quietly. I didn’t turn it into a major conversation because, for me, it was about getting through the process,” she added. “But it was also emblematic to me of the privilege that I have.”

“I know the law … There are thousands, millions in Georgia who do not know what their rights are and therefore do not know that they shouldn’t have to wait in four-hour lines in the rain with their children. They shouldn’t have to worry about whether they will lose their jobs in order to exercise their democratic right to vote for their leader,” said Abrams

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.26.19

Potential 2020 Democratic candidate Cory Booker offered another excuse for Stacey Abrams’ failed bid for Governor of Georgia Monday; claiming “rampant voter suppression” was behind her midterm defeat.

“Let me just say something about Stacey Abrams because she’s an old friend. She’s one of the most impressive people I’ve met in the last decade of politics. She’s an amazing person,” said Booker.

“It almost bothers me that—Beto, it’s great that he’s in the race, but I wish he wasn’t the only person that ran a great race in 2018 that’s talked about,” Booker continued. “Here’s an African American woman that but for I think rampant voter suppression going on in Georgia, she would be the candidate, somebody who had a national appeal. She should be talked about as a presidential candidate.”
