Moments after Stacey Abrams announced she was running for governor of Georgia, we endorsed her.
It's not hard to see why: Stacey is a tour-de-force who puts working families first. She's a proven dealmaker, progressive champion, and tireless civil rights advocate.
That's why she was the first ever recipient of our Gabrielle Giffords Rising Star Award in 2014, and we're so proud to stand with her as she takes on this next fight.

Stacey has a strong history of fighting for women and families in Georgia, starting with her election to the Georgia House in 2006. In 2010, she made history as the first woman to lead either party in the Georgia General Assembly.
In that time, Stacey's worked to increase access to affordable quality health care, championed legislation to keep kids out of foster care, and held town halls across the state to listen to the people she serves.
And she's on track to make quite a bit of history too: Georgia has never had a woman or a person of color serve as governor. And no state in the entire COUNTRY has ever elected an African American woman governor.
It's time to change that.
Governors have a crucial ability to protect the people they serve. At a time when President Trump's election has emboldened extremist Republicans in state legislatures to attack the rights of women and communities of color, we need Stacey to protect vulnerable Georgians from whatever they try next.
