Stacey Abrams wants revenge over governor loss

Stacey Abrams, who still hasn’t conceded in the Georgia governor’s race, is plotting some sort of revenge for her election loss. She told an audience at Vanderbilt University campus in Nashville that it felt like purgatory in the 10 days between the election and her non-concession speech.

“I upend the tradition of politics where you’re supposed to be genteel, say everything is fine. I didn’t do that,” she said, adding: “I could fight just to fight, but the minute it becomes about me, it becomes a vanity project. … That can’t be the reason you do things. And I spent that 10-day period plotting. Revenge can be very cathartic.”

No clues as to what kind of revenge that is or what she means.

Since her defeat, there has been talk of Abrams running for Senate, President or even becoming a potential VP pick. Abrams is meeting with former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper and said at the Vanderbilt event there are two main points someone has to acknowledge before she’d consider being their running mate.

“One, you have to tell me what you’re going to do about voter suppression. And two, you have to believe Georgia is a swing state.”
