Mom always said if you lose a match or competition, learn from the experience and try again. Stacey Abrams’ mother obviously didn’t get the memo because every time Stacey Abrams loses an election, we have to put up with several years of her talking about how she really won them and that ‘racism’ got in the way. his destiny.
Well now it seems even the members of his own Democratic party are fed up with the nonsense, and they really hope they find a candidate to run in Georgia’s next gubernatorial election who loses like a person normal, and just go write a book afterwards, or become a CNN contributor or even get meth addict as the “new obama“Andrew Gillum.
Abrams’ 2022 campaign has significantly outscored his GOP opponent, Gov. Brian Kemp, by a staggering $8 million in that run. The big problem is that she ran short of money, still lost, and failed to repay its existing campaign debts. Despite two consecutive statewide losses and a debt load that would make an average person blush, she still thinks she’s a viable candidate.

She won’t leave
“I will probably show up again” said Abrams in January. “If at first you don’t succeed, try again. If that doesn’t work, you try again.
I think that old saying applies to trying pilates or taking part in a food challenge at a local restaurant. There must be a follow-up phrase somewhere that says if you blamed your last two elections on unfounded conspiraciesracism and you have millions in debt, you should probably give up.
Bobby Kahn, the former leader of the Democratic Party of Georgia, the big guy in charge at the time, said the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that like Andrew Gillum’s meth addiction, Abrams should just go cold turkey and let someone else lose for once.

Well he didn’t put it exactly like that but he made it clear that she shouldn’t show up again.
“The party must move forward,” Kahn said. “And going 0-3 isn’t just a way forward. Does she really want to be the next Guy Millner? For reference, Millner was a Republican from Georgia who lost three statewide races in the 1990s is not a record anyone in their right mind would want to hold.
“She cannot attribute running against an incumbent. She raised a record amount. And Democrats in 94 other states thought she would win,” he continued. “She will always be difficult to beat in a primary. Hopefully she comes to that conclusion herself. There are plenty of up-and-coming leaders in the party ready to step in.
When a Republican denies an election result, it constitutes a “threat to democracy”.
When a Democrat denies SEVERAL election results, it’s political superstar Stacy Abrams.

Kahn isn’t the only Democrat saying Abrams needs to admit the political romance is over, and like a lover left in denial, they both need to see other people.
Yvonne Stuart, the current chairwoman of the Monroe County Democratic Party, praised Abrams but still admitted that the recent loss in 2022 may have been due to her newfound celebrity status inflating her ego. and his expectations.
“I believe there could be another charismatic Democrat who can take us through 2026,” Stuart told the Journal-Constitution. “There were major talents on our ticket throughout the ticket in 2022.”
David Ellis-Mendoza, the current chairman of the Bartow County Democrats, was more timidly critical of Abrams but said she needed to move on nonetheless.
“I believe there are opportunities for others to step in and run for governor,” he said.
