Oh, Boy: Stacey Abrams Is Considering Being Any 2020 Dem's Running Mate

Failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams made it very clear she thinks she deserves to be governor. In fact, she still has yet to concede to the actual governor, Gov. Brian Kemp (R), because she believes "voter suppression" took place during the 2018 election. She even went so far as to say she won the election. What really happened? Kemp purged the voter registration lists of ineligible voters in Georgia as part of his duty as Secretary of State. And she lost by 50,000 votes. In Abrams mind, the purge must have been the reason she lost.

Fast forward nine months later and now Abrams is open to being any of the 2020 Democrats' running mate. She made that very clear during a recent interview with the New York TimesApparently she decided not to run for president but she's leaving the possibilities of being vice president open.

"I would be honored to be considered by any nominee," Abrams told the Times. "But my responsibility is to focus on the primary. And that means using the primary as an opportunity to build the apparatus to fight voter suppression. Because in the end, no matter where I fit, no matter which ones of our nominees win, if we haven’t fought this scourge, if we haven’t pushed back against Moscow Mitch and his determination to block any legislation that would cure our voting machines, then we are all in a world of trouble."

She did, however, have a litmus test for the nominees.

"I asked two things with all the presidential nominees I’ve met with," she explained. "One is that they make voter suppression their number one issue. And two, that they make Georgia a top priority because it is a battleground state."

It would be interesting to see her as the Democratic nominee's running mate. If nothing else, it'd be funny to watch her say voter suppression took place when President Trump wins re-election. Because, you know, in her mind, how could someone not want her to be second in command?
