Stacey Abrams is doing everything a would-be presidential candidate would do: a nationwide book tour, candidate cattle calls and stops on late-night television and morning news shows. But the Georgia Democrat is also still actively considering a run for a seat in the Senate, and top Democrats continue to court her aggressively for the race. Abrams met with Chuck Schumer Thursday in Washington, at least her third meeting with the Democratic leader this year.
Abrams told POLITICO in an interview on Thursday evening that Schumer has been “diligent” and “thoughtful” in wooing her to run for Senate, including enlisting allies to help her understand the contours of the job. Abrams said she spent years preparing to run for governor in 2018, a race she narrowly lost, and wanted to give the same forethought to a Senate bid.
