Stacey Abrams Considering 2020 Presidential Run
A failed 2018 gubernatorial candidate from Georgia has not ruled out a 2020 bid for president, according to her Twitter account.
#LeadFromTheOutside, I explore how to be intentional about plans, but flexible enough to adapt. 20 years ago, I never thought I’d be ready to run for POTUS before 2028. But life comes at you fast – as I shared in Q&A w @Yamiche at @sxsw. Now 2020 is definitely on the table…” Stacey Abrams said on Twitter.

“Lead From The Outside” is Abrams’ upcoming book.
Abrams was clearing the air on Twitter after comments she made at the SXSW conference, during which she said that based on a spreadsheet of her goals, the earliest she would be able to run for president would be 2028.
“In the spreadsheet with all the jobs I wanted to do, 2028 would be the earliest I would be ready to stand for president because I would have done the work I thought necessary to be effective in that job,” she said during the conference.
Abrams was notoriously bitter after her gubernatorial loss, and even refused to recognize her opponent, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, as legitimate. Her contention was that the GOP suppressed votes, an increasingly popular excuse for Democratic Party candidates who lose elections.
In reality, Abrams is a radical socialist who, during her college years, founded a black separatist group to fight integration and capitalism. She also, ran on a platform of gun confiscation and campaigned with known Jew hater Linda Sarsour.
