Two-time Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams has never won the Governor’s Mansion. It looks like she hasn’t learned her lesson.
And total failure Stacey Abrams just revealed her next move.
Democrats have expressed concern behind closed doors about the idea of Stacey Abrams, a two-time unsuccessful gubernatorial candidate, running for office again.
Abrams informed Drew Barrymore on her daytime talk show in January, without indicating which post she would run for, that she would be returning.
“I will likely run again,” Abrams said. “If at first you don’t succeed, try try again. If it doesn’t work, you try again.”
Abrams appeared to restate this stance last week when she told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC) that political office is “one tool for the issues I am committed to tackling.”
The AJC’s Greg Bluestein mentioned numerous Democrats who were concerned that another Abrams run would further taint the party’s image in Georgia’s purple state.

“Interviews with more than three dozen Democratic officials, party leaders and activists suggest she may not have the same unified support she enjoyed after her first defeat to Kemp in 2018,” Bluestein wrote.
Yvonne Stuart, chair of the Monroe County Democratic Party, for example, stated that while she admired Abrams’ fundraising and voter registration efforts, she believed another Democrat should run for office.
“I do believe there might be another charismatic Democrat that can take us all the way in 2026,” said Stuart.
“I believe that there are opportunities for others to step up to the plate and run for governor,” said David Ellis-Mendoza, the chair of the Bartow County Democrats
“The party needs to move forward. And going 0-3 isn’t a way to go forward. Does she really want to be the next Guy Millner?” former head of the Democratic Party of Georgia Bobby Kahn said.
Abrams’ star power suffered in December of last year as a result of her poor financial management following her loss to beat Republican Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp.

Stacey Abrams raised over $100 million for her failed campaign but still found herself over $1 million in debt, requiring her to fire workers shortly after the November election, as Breitbart News previously revealed.
Democrats did not hold back in criticizing her financial actions.
“It’s incredibly bad planning, and it shows where their values are at,” a senior Democratic official told Greg Bluestein of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
“You can’t look up one day and realize you can’t pay the bills.”
