Democrat Stacey Abrams is running a second time for governor in Georgia, taking on moderate Republican Governor Brian Kemp while former President Trump mocks her campaign, stating that he easily beat her in 2018 and he’ll “beat her again.”

“Stacey ‘The Hoax’ Abrams has just announced that she’s running for Governor of Georgia. I beat her single-handedly, without much of a candidate, in 2018. I’ll beat her again, but it will be hard to do with Brian Kemp, because the MAGA [Make America Great Again] base will just not vote for him after what he did with respect to Election Integrity and two horribly run elections, for President and then two Senate seats,” Trump said in a statement Wednesday evening.

“But some good Republican will run, and some good Republican will get my endorsement, and some good Republican will WIN!” the former president exclaimed.

Kemp ran afoul of Trump in 2020 when he certified Georgia’s presidential election results in November following a state recount. Many conservatives including Trump contend that the voting process in the Peach State was rife with fraud and that Kemp rolled over handing the state to Biden.

Abrams lost to Kemp in 2018 by approximately 55,000 votes. She has incessantly claimed that she did not lose the election and that Republicans cheated. She was previously the Georgia House Democratic leader but now has her heart set on becoming the first black woman to serve as governor in the United States as well as being the first black governor in Georgia.

“I’m running for Governor because opportunity in our state shouldn’t be determined by zip code, background or access to power,” Abrams tweeted on Wednesday, posting her campaign announcement video with the slogan “We are One Georgia.”

“If our Georgia is going to move to its next and greatest chapter, we are going to need leadership,” Abrams stated in her video. “Leadership that knows how to do the job. Leadership that doesn’t take credit without also taking responsibility. Leadership that understands the true pain folks are feeling and has real plans.”

Abrams, a so-called voting rights advocate, raged against Senate Bill 202 that was passed along party lines in the Georgia General Assembly. The bill implements strict new voter ID requirements, limits absentee ballots and early voting, and puts restrictions on ballot drop boxes. The bill also allowed the state to take control of county election boards.

She disingenuously claimed on Twitter at the time that the bill “suppresses voters, criminalizes compassion and seizes election authority from local and state officials.”

Democrats are strongly pushing Abrams in Georgia and the leftist media is penning love letters to her campaign.

MSNBC also just published a piece entitled, “Stacey Abrams is running for Georgia governor. She’s a blueprint for Democrats.”

“Abrams is the candidate Democrats need to rally around in Georgia, and she’s the type of candidate Democrats across the country need to embrace, if they’re to have any hope of thwarting the GOP power grab — illiberal and otherwise — across the country. She has prioritized a major policy concern for Democrats in her years of voting rights activism, and she can do what many politicians can’t, be they Republican or Democrat: That is, provide a real reason for her to be in power,” the media outlet laughingly stated.

“She is the perfect candidate to run against any of Georgia’s GOP nominees. But as Republicans decry the role of government in everything from health care to environmental protections, Abrams is the blueprint for the type of candidate — clear, justifiably self-confident and not easily shaken from her stances — that Democrats need to instill faith in government’s power to do good,” MSNBC proclaimed.

Kemp responded to Abram’s announcement via Twitter.
