In 2022, the Democratic Party in Georgia will be running a long-time voting rights advocate and activist for governor and a pastor from the church where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once preached from the pulpit for senator. The Republicans will be represented by Marjorie Taylor Greene, the woman who harassed a school shooting survivor and stalked Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and yelled insults at her through the mail slot on her office door.

Abrams’ chances of winning in Georgia are higher than in 2018, which is a safe assumption considering that both Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff, both Democrats, won Senate seats in 2020 while Donald Trump, who won Georgia by a little over four points in 2016, lost in 2020 to Joe Biden.
‘Georgia is changing demographically, which is why we make Stacey Abrams 8-11 favorite to overturn her defeat to Brian Kemp from 2018. State elections are now dominated by the left-leaning Atlanta metro area, with Kemp requiring a massive groundswell of support from the rural Republican heartlands to stand a chance.’
It’s more than understandable that Abrams would be excited to run alongside Rev. Warnock. The two represent some of the best of the Democratic Party.
Twitter offered a flood of support in the comments on Abrams’ tweet. Read some of their thoughts below:
