Among the flood of Stacey-Abrams-Veepstakes articles, two this week caught my attention. First was Marc Thiessen’s column in The Washington Post comparing Abrams to Sarah Palin. No one doubts that Georgia House Minority Leader to VP is a big jump. But it’s hard to compare a ticketmate who’s greatest was the sheerest of veneers hiding
Stacey Abrams’ group Fair Fight Action released a new ad on Wednesday urging Georgians to vote by mail. The ad, “Be a Peach”, is below. This election, you should vote by mail.You should vote by mail because some voters can only vote in person.There are voters with disabilities, others who are homeless or displaced… and
This is your last chance to get on the Stacey Abrams for VP bandwagon before you become a bandwagoner (“I was with her before she sold out”). In a wide-ranging feature in Elle magazine, Abrams explicitly makes her case: I would be an excellent running mate. I have the capacity to attract voters by motivating
Fresh off his king-making endorsement in the Democratic Presidential Primary, Jim Clyburn is setting his sights on Georgia. In last weekend’s “Lunch with the FT”, Clyburn made clear what he’s looking for from Joe Biden’s VP nod: an African-American woman. (The Financial Times is so exceedingly good you should all subscribe to it–and you’ve got
Democrats seemed poised to be to rally behind Raphael Warnock for Senate on Thursday. Buried in Politico’s reporting on Warnock’s announcement is news that Ed Tarver is finalizing his campaign for the same Senate seat.

Here we are in the first week of April and we’re still waiting. In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Abrams said her next campaign is
Former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign advisors are reportedly debating adding Stacey Abrams to the ticket…..as part of his official campaign announcement. A very speculative post from Axios’ Mike Allen says Biden’s position on Abrams couldn’t be discerned (that’s probably important to the process). But the report lays out several puzzle pieces that show why
I’m an Augustan by birth, and no matter where in the state, country, or world I may live, Augusta politics has always held a special place in my heart. That’s saying something, because at times, Augusta politicians can be horribly frustrating and demoralizing. We’re responsible for both Linda Schrenko and Charles Walker, for example. We’ll
Stacey Abrams’ campaign has not conceded. Kemp’s camp says it’s over. Cody Hall from Brian Kemp’s campaign said, “Kemp’s margin is so large that the number of provisional ballots and overseas ballots will not change his Election Day victory.” He goes on to say, “it is mathematically impossible for Stacey Abrams to win or force
Oh, the joys of tight elections! They bring out the best in some of us, but then there’s the mayhem caused by bad actors… Between August 2014 and May 2016, I voted in North Carolina. That was two years of sheer craziness because North Carolina is well known for being the purplest of purple states.
