Despite no longer being President, Barack Obama still has a lot of power within the Democrat Party.
With the upcoming 2020 elections, he has been making many moves behind the scenes.
And one of his top allies just came out with a massive announcement about the 2020 election.
Since the 2018 midterms, there’s been one person Barack Obama has propped up more than anybody.
That is Stacey Abrams of Georgia, who lost the governor race to Republican Brian Kemp.
Despite her loss, she continues to believe the election was rigged and refuses to concede from the election.
During the same time, she has been meeting with Barack Obama and top Democrat officials.
Abrams also led the Democrat response to Trump’s latest State of the Union Address and some have even dubbed her as “the next Obama.”
And there’s been speculation she will run for David Perdue’s U.S. Senate seat in 2020.
However, Abrams recently announced that she will not be running, saying, “I do not see the U.S. Senate as the best role for me in this battle for our nation’s future.”
This could mean a number of things.
It is possible that she will jump into the crowded Democrat field for President.
She may also continue in her fight against so-called “voter suppression.”
Abrams is the current leader of Fair Fight Action, which was founded immediately after her loss in November.
The group opposes voter ID laws and other security measures that “suppresses the vote.”
Abrams only left one hint about her future and it’s that she will announce her plans in the coming weeks for a “groundbreaking initiatives to protect the right to vote.”
As for her presidential run, Abrams clearly believes she has a good chance, stating that she thinks the Democrat nominee will be a woman or a minority—or both.
But even if she doesn’t jump in for President, she may hop onto whoever gets the nomination’s ticket for Vice President.
Earlier this year, Abrams met with former Vice President Joe Biden and there are rumors that she may be his running mate.
In response, Abrams stated that discussing a possible Biden-Abrams ticket was not a “core issue” during their meeting, but acknowledged that it came up.
No matter what happens, Stacey Abrams has a bright future at the highest levels in the Democrat Party.
Being an ally of former President Obama has its privileges, especially when gender and race are involved.
Do you think Stacey Abrams could beat President Trump?
