Stacey Abrams To Battle Voter Suppression, No WH Bid

The New York Times reports:

Stacey Abrams, the Georgia politician who captured national attention during her unsuccessful run for governor in 2018, has decided not to run for president after publicly contemplating a bid for months, according to people familiar with her thinking.

Ms. Abrams, a Democrat, will instead focus her efforts on preventing voter suppression with a new initiative called Fair Fight 2020, which takes its name from a group Ms. Abrams began last year after her election loss. It will work with state parties in battleground states to more closely monitor voter protection ahead of next year’s general election.

The move comes after civil rights groups raised questions about voter suppression and election rigging in Ms. Abrams’ narrow loss to Brian Kemp, a Republican who was Georgia’s secretary of state.
