It’s doubtful that a defeated Democratic candidate for Georgia governor would be a serious contender for the presidency, says a longtime conservative activist.
Stacey Abrams, considered a rising star in the Democratic Party, gained national attention last year during a closely-fought Georgia gubernatorial bid that would have seen her become the first black woman ever elected governor.
She was then picked by the Democrats to give the party's response to the president's State of the Union address.
Now the former state legislator says a 2020 presidential run "is definitely on the table” in what is already a crowded field of White House hopefuls.
Cathie Adams of Eagle Forum says Abrams is “out of step” not only with Southern voters but voters throughout the country.
“She doesn't understand what it means to build a business and make a living,” Adams says. “I think politicians sometimes are so much a part of the swamp culture that they are out of touch with the real people."
Adams tells OneNewsNow she was not impressed with Abrams rebuttal of the president's State of the Union Address, calling it an “ugly speech” that doesn’t qualify her to seek the White House.
Abrams lost to GOP candidate Brian Kemp, the state's secretary of state, and sued the state after claiming "voter supression" got Kemp elected.
Abrams, meanwhile, has been floated as a possible challenger to Republican Senator David Perdue next year.
