Failed Georgia Governor candidate Stacey Abrams unveiled her “plans” to become the President of the United States within 2020 years Friday; telling a reporter she’s “very pragmatic.”
“Do you think the country will elect a woman president in the next 20 years?” asked reporter Clare Malone.
“Yes, absolutely,” Abrams said.
“Do you think it will elect a black woman?” Malone pressed.
“Yes, absolutely,” Abrams fired-back.
“Do you think they’ll elect you?” asked Malone.
“Yes, I do. That’s my plan. And I’m very pragmatic,” Abrams replied.
“Abrams has never held an office higher than a seat in the Georgia House of Representatives, although she did spend several years as a member of the Democratic leadership of that body. Abrams gained national fame for her contentious election against Kemp in 2018 — a race that was seen as a potential bellwether for Republicans in right-leaning states nationwide during what was a wave election year for Democrats,” reports Fox News.

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

DELUSIONAL: Failed Candidate Stacey Abrams Says Using ‘Identity Politics’ Is ‘Exactly How We Won’
Failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams continued her full-fledged ‘delusion’ tour this week; telling supporters that she actually “won” her 2018 race by using “identity politics.”
Abrams was speaking at the Center for American Progress’s Ideas Conference when she urged Democrats to embrace “Identity politics” as a blueprint for future victories across the country.

“The notion of identity politics has been peddled for the past 10 years and it’s been used as a dog whistle to say we shouldn’t pay too much attention to the voices coming into progress,” Abrams said. “I would argue that identity politics is exactly who we are and exactly how we won.”
Abrams is not alone. A handful of top Democrats -including Hillary Clinton, Beto O’Rourke, Kamala Harris, and others- have maintained the Georgia race was “rigged” against the Democratic candidate using “voter suppression.”
Rapidly fading Democratic presidential hopeful Beto O’Rourke praised failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams on The View weeks ago; touting her “grace” after the Republican Party “rigged” her 2018 election.
“The grace with which she met that defeat on an unfair, unlevel playing field with the Secretary of State, perhaps rigging in part that election…is inspiring stuff at a time that our democracy is so badly broken,” said Beto.

“Let’s say this loud and clear — without voter suppression, @StaceyAbrams would be the governor of Georgia, @AndrewGillum is the governor of Florida. So the truth is we need a new Voting Rights Act,” said Sen. Harris weeks ago.
“Massive voter suppression prevented Stacey Abrams from becoming the rightful Governor of Georgia. They’ll fight anyone who tries to stand up and push back. They’ll do whatever it takes to stop a full and fair count because they know that there’s more that unites us than divides us,” added Sen. Warren.
