“Stacey Abrams is not running for Senate to replace Johnny Isakson, despite some high-level pressure from Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and many on Twitter urging her to step into the race.
On the pure politics, there is good reason behind the disappointment. She is probably the best chance for Democrats to win the Senate seat in Georgia. And winning back the Senate means Democrats would wrestle back control of nominations, judicial appointments — including to the Supreme Court — and position Congress to fix the disaster of the Trump years with a Democrat in the White House.
But Abrams isn’t passing up the opportunity to take a lucrative job in the tobacco industry or even a high-powered law firm. Instead, she’s leading an effort to make every vote count in the next election with her initiative Fair Fight 2020.”
