NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams says she’s willing to meet with any candidate running for president in 2020, but warned she has two ground rules.

Abrams says she will meet with candidates who have a plan to address voter suppression, as well as believe Georgia will be a swing state in the 2020 election.

Southwest Atlanta, thank you for your support during the campaign and for welcoming me back on Tuesday. When we launched our campaign for progress in 2017, we had a mission of lifting up voices that had not been heard, talking about issues that often are not discussed, and turning out voters who some believed would never show up to the ballot box. We achieved these goals and many more, but our work is not done. We know we can change our leadership. Sometimes it is changed after one election. More often, leadership is changed through sustained efforts – holding our elected officials accountable every day, challenging the status quo, and continuing to champion the values we share. Thank you for demanding that we have fair fights in our elections going forward. Maybe you knocked on doors, made phone calls, donated to our campaign, or voted for progress last November – thank you! And whether you did all or none of those things, I am here to challenge you to join me in our fair fight. To join our demand for free and fair elections in Georgia that are the best democracy has to offer. To join our fair fight for access to health care, Medicaid expansion, and reproductive justice. To join our fight for public transit and more opportunities for our neighbors across this great state. Because when we stand together, there’s no fight that’s too big, no challenge that’s insurmountable. We fill fight, and together, we will win.

The 45-year-old Abrams made the remarks while speaking in Nashville on Tuesday. Abrams has become a rising national star in the months after being defeated in the Georgia governor’s race last year. She is being heavily recruited to run for Senate, weighing another campaign for governor and even considering making a presidential bid herself

On Tuesday, Abrams didn’t reveal much about her next political move but said she’s open to being flexible to all options.

  1. I’d say the biggest unfit clown is that shit show currently in the wh. He’s not doing nothing but twitting all damn day. He’s a sad miserable fake prez. I wish he would just resign.

    • Don’t worry sweety 2025 there will be a new sheriff in town, well maybe not if the liberal dingbats like Occasional cortex, Spartacus, and Stormy Harris keep talking the Democratic party may need its own green new deal to survive

      Repubs are so scared of Abrams and Ocasio, it’s not funny. These women have them sh!tting in their pants every time they speak. Meanwhile, at the WH, the orange demented blob is literally having a meltdown. It’s only a matter of time before they invoke the 25th on his crazy @ss. George Conway was right. His mental condition is getting worse and the day is long.

  2. Stacy A. ran for Governor of GA and in spite of Hollywood liberal elitist backing LOST
    Now she wants to run around the Country claiming voter suppression as the reason,
    Sounds like a page from Hilary Clinton now you have this circus of democratic candidates going around promising anything and everything to garner support GMAFB

    Stacey Abrams is formidable. I hope she runs for Senate in 2020, or even better for Georgia, run for Governor again. However, I don’t think she needs to get in the race for President. Kamala Harris, fellow Howard University graduate, has my support 100%. Senator Harris is an outstanding candidate with a great platform. She has very specific plans to boost families and individuals who are struggling financially. It’s time for Ms. Abrams to stop teasing about running for President and start with one of the other races so we can support her and Senator Harris.
