Candidate for Georgia Governor: Stacey Abrams
Stacey Abrams is a Democrat running for Governor of Georgia.
For a decade, Abrams represented District 89 in Georgia’s House of Representatives. She served as House minority leader from 2011 until she resigned in 2017 to run for Governor.
She earned a legal degree from Yale University Law School and worked as a deputy city attorney for Atlanta.
Abrams narrowly lost to incumbent Republican Governor Brian Kemp in the 2018 midterm election by approximately one percent of the vote. She has called Kemp a “far-right extremist.”
She supports expanding Medicaid, offering free technical college and tackling the affordable housing crisis. She said she will work to repeal Kemp’s six-week abortion ban and legislation restricting voting rights.
