It is official – former House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams is the Democratic candidate for Governor. After defeating former state Rep. Stacey Evans on Tuesday Abrams will be the party standard-bearer for the next five and a half months, which means it is now time for all of us who identify as Democrats to lend her our support.
She was not every primary voter’s first choice, however, we must unify behind Abrams as soon as possible. In a state that has been dominated by Republicans for nearly two decades, Democrats enter the next phase of this race with momentum – the GOP primary for governor has gone to a runoff. Lieutenant Governor Casey Cagle and Secretary of State Brian Kemp are now forced to spend the next two months fighting over which one of them is the most extreme conservative candidate in the Georgia Republican Party.
