Stacey Abrams acknowledged in an interview Tuesday that she’s long been more enthused about taking on an executive position like governor or president than being “one of 100” U.S. Senators.
Abrams, who fell short in her bid for Georgia governor in 2018 but became a national progressive darling along the way, is being recruited by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) to challenge Sen. David Perdue (R., Ga.), who is up for reelection in 2020. Abrams has expressed strong disappointment at losing to Republican governor Brian Kemp, who she has accused of systematically suppressing thousands of voters and essentially rigging his own victory, and she has considered challenging him again in 2022. She’s also mulling joining the crowded field of 2020 Democratic presidential candidates.
The article goes on to state the following:
Fox 5 Atlanta anchor Russ Spencer said he’d observed Abrams during her busy interview tour promoting her 2018 book Minority Leader, and he said it seemed she was “more excited” about holding an executive position than joining the U.S. Senate.
“It seems to me that you’re much more excited about being an executive, a governor or president, than about being one of 100 senators,” Spencer said. “Is that a fair observation?”
