Stacey Abrams has been the Governor of Georgia for the past four years and just started her second term.
At least that’s the fantasyland story she tells anyone who will listen.
But Stacey Abrams just gave Democrats a big headache with this one major announcement.
Meet election-denier Stacey Abrams
Democrat Stacey Abrams spent the past four years telling anyone who was willing to listen that she was the rightful Governor of Georgia.
Never one to let the facts get in the way of a left-wing narrative, in reality Abrams lost her 2018 gubernatorial race by 55,000 votes – or about 1.5 points.
Her 2022 rematch against Republican Governor Brian Kemp was not nearly as close, as Abrams lost by 300,000 votes or 7.5 points.
Her fellow woke Democrat candidate, Senator Raphael Warnock, won his run-off race against Herschel Walker by a razor-thin margin.
When a Republican denies an election result, they’re a “threat to democracy.”
When a Democrat denies MULTIPLE election results, they’re political superstar Stacy Abrams.

But as always, Abrams is blaming her loss on so-called “racism” and supposed “voter suppression.”
And once again, the facts don’t back up her claims.
Back in 2021, the Peach State passed a package of election integrity laws that included voter ID provisions.
Major League Baseball virtue signaled and moved its All-Star Game out of Atlanta in response to left-wing outrage over the bill.
President Joe Biden jumped the shark and labeled the law “Jim Crow 2.0.”
Abrams – who had already announced a second gubernatorial run at the time – turned to the oldest trick in the Democrat playbook and called the law racist.
“These are laws that respond to an increase in voting by people of color,” Abrams told the Associated Press at the time. “Republicans are gaming the system because they’re afraid of losing an election. It seems to imply that if we do absolutely nothing and the votes of black people and people of color are suppressed, that is not a problem.”
Yet again, the myth of voter suppression in Georgia fails to be supported by a shred of evidence.
It is past time for President Biden & his allies to apologize to the people of Georgia & request the DOJ withdraw its ridiculous lawsuit against the state. https://t.co/wVwMWQMpGD

In reality, the black vote in Georgia actually increased following the passage of the GOP’s election integrity bill.
In fact, Georgia had record turnout in last year’s Midterms – pouring cold water all over the left-wing lies.
Abrams gearing up for another loss
But, as The Hill is reporting, none of that is stopping Abrams from contemplating a third straight run for the Governor’s Mansion in the Peach State.
“I will likely run again,” Abrams said in January. “If at first you don’t succeed, try try again. If it doesn’t work, you try again.”
However, the former head of the Democrat Party of Georgia, Bobby Kahn, would rather avoid the Party going 0-3 in 12 years of gubernatorial contests.
Democrats have two words for Abrams
“The Party needs to move forward,” Kahn said. “She can’t chalk it up to running against an incumbent. She raised a record amount of money. And Democrats in 94 other states thought she would win. She will still be hard to beat in a primary. You have to hope she comes to this conclusion herself. There are a lot of rising leaders in the Party ready to step in.”
Kahn isn’t alone in hoping Abrams wakes up to reality.
The current Chair for the Monroe County Democrat Party, Yvonne Stuart, previously supported Abrams but is now ready to move on.
“I do believe there might be another charismatic Democrat that can take us all the way in 2026,” Stuart told the Journal-Constitution. “There was major talent on our ticket all the way down the ticket in 2022.”
And the current Chair of the Bartow County Democrats, David Ellis-Mendoza, echoed the sentiments of Kahn and Stuart.
“I believe that there are opportunities for others to step up to the plate and run for Governor,” Ellis-Mendoza said.
