Stacey Abrams Says She's 'Likely' to Run Again

Stacey Abrams says she's likely to run for office again after two failed attempts to become governor in Georgia.

Abrams has been defeated twice by Republican Gov. Brian Kemp, yet expects to launch another campaign in the future.

"I will likely run again," Abrams said on "The Drew Barrymore Show."

"Well, if at first you don't succeed, try, try again," Abrams added. "And if it doesn't work you try again."

Abrams raised $113 million for her rematch against Kemp, a massive advantage over Kemp's $78 million.

The amount did not result in a win, however, as Kemp defeated Abrams by more than 7.5 percentage points. The totals were a massive jump over 2018 when Abrams raised $27 million and Kemp $21 million, according to Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

"The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported before the election that despite her record fundraising, Abrams' campaign was having money troubles. The AJC reported in December that she owed vendors big money," it reported.

"Abrams campaign manager Lauren Groh-Wargo told Axios that a 'cavalcade of negative press,' along with a steady drumbeat of polls showing her trailing Kemp, complicated fundraising efforts in the race's final weeks," it added.

Abrams is clearly able to raise money, though much of it was from out-of-state Democrats seeking to flip the state's leadership.

The voters ultimately decided against Abrams, though Georgia would go on to elect Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock over Herschel Walker in the Senate runoff, showing that the left was able to pick up at least one major win in Georgia's midterms.
