I opened up the Atlanta Urinal and Constipation yesterday and saw this.
Stacey Abrams said Tuesday that she won’t run for the U.S. Senate in 2020 but left open the possibility she could launch a presidential campaign.
Abrams Tank for president! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Another Klown in the Kar.
The decision not to challenge Republican U.S. Sen. David Perdue follows months of speculation about the Democrat’s next political step after her narrow loss in last year’s race for governor.
Which she still has not gotten over and she refuses to concede.
“I’ve been deeply honored by so many fellow Georgians asking me to serve,” she said in an interview. “But my responsibility is not simply to run because the job is available. I need to run because I want to do the job.
And I don’t know if I can quit whining about losing the governor’s race long enough to campaign.
”It leaves Democrats without their top recruit for the Senate race, which has essentially been frozen while Abrams has deliberated. Republicans, gleeful at her decision, rushed to describe the other potential hopefuls as “second-tier” candidates.
Which they are, but so is Abrams Tank after acting like a sore loser.
And it opens a new round of scrutiny over whether she will join the growing presidential field or emerge as a White House hopeful’s running mate, a possibility that heightened after she delivered her party’s rebuttal to the State of the Union.
C’mon in Stacy, the water’s fine. Noooooo! Don’t do a cannonball!
If she doesn’t make a White House run, Abrams is likely to prepare a 2022 rematch against Gov. Brian Kemp, who bested her by about 55,000 votes in a contest marred by allegations of voter suppression. After 10 days of legal wrangling and vote-counting, Abrams ended her campaign but refused to call it a concession.
Her profile has only grown after that election as she’s traveled across the nation on a book tour. She’s hit the late-night talk show circuit, attracted sold-out crowds from Nashville, Tenn., to Seattle and drawn huge audiences to podcast tapings.
Which doesn’t help her in Georgia.
Closer to home, she’s trekked across Georgia on a “thank-you tour” to reconnect with supporters; appeared on local Super Bowl ads to boost her Fair Fight voting rights group, which is challenging state electoral policies in court; and sharply criticized the anti-abortion “heartbeat” measure backed by Kemp.
While her national image has soared, an Atlanta Journal-Constitution poll showed Abrams’ favorability ratings in Georgia have dipped. The poll, released in April, showed about 45% of Georgia voters view her favorably, compared with 52% in January. Her unfavorable rating jumped 5 percentage points to 45%.
The voters in Georgia don’t like her whining and refusing to accept the results of the election. The polls are the real reason she’s not running for the Senate. She’s now a friend of Schmuck Schumer. Georgia voters are seeing what a real leftist she is.
Maybe she can join Cynthia McCommie in California.
