Help This Incredible Candidate Become the First Black Woman Governor in the U.S.
Stacey Abrams is the founder of the New Georgia Project, which has already registered hundreds of thousands of new voters in Georgia. NGP is one of the groups in Airlift's Voter Motor fund.
Stacey has been the Minority Leader in the Georgia House of Representatives for the past 6 years where she has managed to add and hold 6 new Democratic seats, keeping a supermajority out of the reach of Republicans. She has also stood her ground on 3 weeks of early voting, more than any other southern state.
So...guess who's running against her in the Democratic primary? A white member of the Georgia house named Stacey Evans, who insists that the 14 white swing voters in the suburbs are going to decide this election.
From Reuters: "Abrams, who rouses audiences to near religious fervor describing her struggles growing up poor and black in the South, argues that Democrats have wasted resources on swing voters."
“We have left too many voters untouched,” she said in an interview, noting that she refuses to tone down her support for abortion, gay rights and labor unions to appeal to Republican-leaning voters.
We are asking everyone to support Georgia Project Action, the electoral arm of the New Georgia Project via a contribution to the Voter Motor fund. Let's help Stacey Abrams finish what she started!
