Former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams is not running for president. Abrams announced her decision on the presidential race after months of speculation that she might, may be, could get into the 2020 race.
Instead, Abrams will focus on preserving voting rights and ensuring that everyone’s vote counts. However, that doesn’t mean we won’t see her on the national political stage in 2020.
After first being offended at the idea of being anyone’s vice presidential candidate, Abrams seems to have come around to the idea of being No. 2 on the ticket.
Abrams appeared on CNN where she was asked whether, if asked, she would say yes to the VP position. She replied that she’d be honored and that it’s something that she would definitely consider if asked by any of the candidates.
