When Stacey Abrams joined View Thursday morning Whoopi Goldberg began his interview by saying, “I know all those Republican politicians in Georgia now wish they had just appointed you governor, because I’m sure they would leave, if we just did that, nothing it would be in progress.
What is happening is a historic political transformation in Abrams’ home state, which has become the center of the political universe now that Joe Biden has become the first Democrat to win there since 1992, and that two of the races in the Georgia Senate are heading for a second round in January. who will probably decide who controls this body.
Abrams couldn’t be more thrilled.
When hearing the news that Biden had won Georgia, Abrams said she thought, “I can wake up in November and be happy.” She added, “We’ve had a few close calls, and we’ve tried hard for the last decade and it’s been a moment of grace. We were so excited and so proud.
Of course, Georgia’s secretary of state has now ordered a full recount of the presidential race, but Abrams said she was not worried Trump would overtake Biden’s lead by around 14,000 votes.
“We don’t know how long it’s going to take, but we are absolutely certain that this lead is insurmountable,” she said. “It’s absolute and Joe Biden will win Georgia. The reality is that they have a right to follow the law and the law allows this type of behavior, and when I was elected in 2018 we fought in the courts to make sure every vote was counted. Unfortunately, they just want to tell about what we have already accomplished.
“And I wish them well,” Abrams continued, “but we know that Joe Biden will not only be the President of the United States, but the first Democratic Party chairman in 30 years to wear Georgia.”
Instead of worrying about the Trump administration’s shenanigans, Abrams remains focused on electing the two Democratic Senate candidates in their two run-off races. “We have to remember that Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock are the only ways to ensure that Mitch McConnell finally passes legislation to renew stimulus investments,” she said. “This is the only way we can make sure the future we need comes to fruition with Joe Biden as president.”
Abrams is so focused, in fact, that unlike the presidential campaign where she was not shy about her aspirations to join Biden’s ticket as vice president, this time she was unusually evasive when asked. asked if she had spoken to the transition team about being part of the new president’s cabinet.
“I spoke to Biden’s team about how to win this election,” she told Joy Behar. “I’m honest, but I’m also focused,” she added. “My focus is on getting the last bit across the finish line and it’s the race for the US Senate on Jan. 5 in Georgia.”
