Sure, Why Not: Abrams Will ‘Likely’ Run for Office Again

Sure, Why Not: Abrams Will ‘Likely’ Run for Office Again

January 10, 2023

Perennial election loser Stacey Abrams told actress Drew Barrymore on her daytime talk show that she will “likely” run for political office again after two failed Georgia gubernatorial campaigns against Republican Brian Kemp.

“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.”

Tell that to your backers. Abrams raised over $100 million for her failed campaign but still finds herself over $1 million in debt, prompting her to fire staff immediately after the November election. Several former staffers report that she regularly wasted funds on ridiculous expenses like renting a home as a backdrop for her TikTok videos.

“Some aides commandeered the vacant five-bedroom craftsman-style house, now available to rent at $12,500 a month, as a makeshift office,” noted the report. “A pop-up shop and ‘swag truck’ were assigned to dispense merchandise, such as T-shirts and hoodies, to win over young voters. But staffers grumbled that there was no apparent strategy behind the giveaways, which they said seemed careless and costly.”

Abrams also reportedly spent a great deal of money on “polls that were disregarded” along with “consultants with confusing or conflicting roles within the sprawling operation.” This was also reportedly a problem during her failed 2018 campaign for governor.
