On Sunday, Greg Bluestein of the AJC tweeted that Stacey Abrams (D) is resigning as House Minority Leader, effective July 1, 2017. In a letter to House Democrats, Abrams said that she wants to focus on her gubernatorial campaign and that the caucus would be better served by a leader with undivided attention.
Abrams has served in the position since 2010. In 2018, she will run against one of her caucus members, state Rep. Stacey Evans, in the Democratic primary for governor.
An excerpt from the letter (imbedded in a Tweet) is below the fold.
