Twice-failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams has resurfaced with a new book and an apparent appetite to turn a couple of southern states blue.
Abrams, last seen throwing her weight around with a group advocating that Americans ditch their gas stoves, released a new fiction book on Tuesday titled, “Rogue Justice.” Here’s an interview she did with CNN’s Jake Tapper on Tuesday about that novel. As described by Media Research Center’s Curtis Houck, the media appearance is “what one could call the interview equivalent of a back or foot massage at a five-star hotel and spa.”

Giving Abrams a back or a foot massage sounds like hell in a handbasket. But, if you happen to own a five-star hotel in Kentucky or Mississippi, you might have to give Abrams one anyway. It looks like she might soon spend some time in the Magnolia and the Blue Grass States.
On MSNBC, anchor Eugene Robinson asked her, “Which southern state do you think is ripest for the transformation you helped accomplish in Georgia?”
“I think that we have an exciting set of elections coming up in Mississippi with Brandon Presley running against a very weakened Tate Reaves,” Abrams said. “I think that Andy Beshear is going to put on a very credible race against Daniel Cameron. He has been a strong governor, and that is a real opportunity.”

For context, after the 2018 election, the Georgia Democrat refused to concede on election night only to spend the next four years bemoaning that Governor Brian Kemp (R) had effectively stolen the election from her. Then, after he signed election reform laws that included items such as voter ID, she alleged he was suppressing the black vote even further.
After primary and general election turnout saw record early numbers with little wait times and near zero reports of voting difficulty, she alleged that the overall smooth process was not necessarily evidence that suppression did not exist. Other Democrats concurred with that assessment.
In the waning days of her campaign, she spent her time appearing at concerts pushing abortion and claimed that Republicans wanted to outlaw certain friends from playing with each other and would force parents to lie.
In 2022, Abrams was trounced by Kemp, who won with 53.4% of the vote.
Abrams also has experience abroad acting as a part of a 40-member crew observing polls in Nigeria’s elections.
