The Democratic field for President is about to get larger.
And it’s all because of one failed 2018 candidate.
This rising Democrat could blow the 2020 field apart with one decision.
Losing an election doesn’t’ have to be the end of a political career.
And for failed Gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams (D-GA), it may not be.
Known in Democratic circles for almost winning Georgia’s gubernatorial election last year, Abrams is now contemplating running for President.
The Daily Caller reports, “Georgia Democratic politician Stacey Abrams thinks she can wait until “the fall” and “still have a real chance to win” the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.”
“I do believe I could enter the conversation as late as the fall and still have a real chance to win,” Abrams told MSNBC.
Of course, Stacey Abrams is completely unqualified to be President.
Abrams couldn’t even be elected Governor of Georgia, and it seems like a good thing she lost that race, as her comments in the weeks and months after the election proved what a disaster she would have been for Georgia.
But Abrams can’t even concede that she lost the gubernatorial race last year in Georgia. She wants to run for President but in her own world, she should be busy governing the State of Georgia.
Breitbart covered the story best by saying, “Abrams’ failed bid for the governor of Georgia against Republican Brian Kemp garnered her national attention. Despite losing to Kemp 50.2 percent to 48.8 percent, Abrams still refuses to concede the race, accusing her opponent of suppressing black voters to win what was one of the 2018 midterm elections’ most-watched races.”
With no experience at all with handling any issues at the Federal level, or in holding any title or position that would make her qualified to be President, Abrams would be making a bold if not foolish move jumping into the already overloaded Democratic primary field.
Abrams continued to tell MSNBC in her recent interview she is not “prepared to shut the door” on her planned Presidential campaign, saying:
“No I’m not. As I’ve said before, I’m watching to see what happens. I think we have a robust crop of candidates. I think they’re having important conversations but my mission is to make certain that we are keeping that attention focused all the way through the campaign and so I’m going to keep watching and decide whether I want to jump in.”
Abrams does have one advantage other major candidates like Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders do not have.
Democrats are so fixated on race, gender, and identity that they may be willing to give Abrams the benefit of the doubt and nominate her in such a crowded field.
That’s her entire campaign strategy if she does run.
But the average American voter who will be deciding the next Presidential election outcome in 2020 probably couldn’t care less about Abrams or her record of non-achievement in Georgia.
