Democrats Worry That Failure Abrams May Run for Office Again

March 21, 2023

Breitbart News reports that Democrats have expressed concern behind closed doors about the prospect of two-time failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams throwing her hat in the ring for another run at office.

This past January, without specifying exactly what position she would run for, Abrams told Drew Barrymore on her daytime talk show that she will be back again.

“I will likely run again,” Abrams said. “If at first you don’t succeed, try try again. If it doesn’t work, you try again.”

Abrams seemed to reiterate this position when she told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC) last week that she views political office as “one tool for the issues I am committed to tackling.”

Greg Bluestein of the AJC quoted several Democrats who feared another Abrams run would further tarnish the party’s brand in the purple state of Georgia.

“Interviews with more than three dozen Democratic officials, party leaders and activists suggest she may not have the same unified support she enjoyed after her first defeat to Kemp in 2018,” Bluestein wrote.

“I believe that there are opportunities for others to step up to the plate and run for governor,” said David Ellis-Mendoza, the chair of the Bartow County Democrats.

“The party needs to move forward. And going 0-3 isn’t a way to go forward,” former head of the Democratic Party of Georgia Bobby Kahn said.
