Stacey Abrams shuts down presidential rumors

However, she did add that in the 2020 presidential election, “Particularly for Georgia, we will be a battleground state, I believe, for the first time in more than 20 years.”

Abrams is still fighting back against the Jim Crow stunts that allowed Kemp to win the gubernatorial race. After the unjust loss, she told Chris Hayes on MSNBC, “It was not a free and fair election. Brian Kemp oversaw — for eight years — the systemic dismantling of our democracy and that meant there could not be free and fair elections in Georgia this year.” She has now started the organization Fair Fight Georgia.

If Abrams manages to make voting fair in Georgia, the state just might be a battleground state in 2020.
