Bizarre Cosmo Interview Reveals Stacey Abrams Is More Concerned With Political Ambitions Than Helping Georgians

Abrams for President in 2028?

In the midst of an ugly primary fight for the Democrat gubernatorial nomination in Georgia, Stacey Abrams has voters scratching their heads after revealing in an interview with Cosmopolitan that she wants to run for President in 2028. In the bizarre interview, Abrams claimed that she has her political ambitions “mapped out in an Excel spreadsheet,” apparently ranking Georgia’s highest office as a stepping stone to eventually reach the presidency. Instead of mapping out ways to help the people of Georgia and solve problems, Abrams is too busy plotting out ways to further her political ambitions for the highest elected office available to her. Georgia deserves a governor focused solely on expanding opportunity and improving the lives of all its people, but Stacey Abrams appears more committed to furthering her own political career.

Here's more from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution: 

Plenty of ambitious politicians dream of running for the White House when they’re pursuing other public office. Few speak candidly about them in the middle of a heated election.

That’s exactly what Democrat Stacey Abrams did in a lengthy interview with a reporter for Cosmopolitan. That piece opens with this blunt assessment:

‘If all goes as planned, the earliest Stacey Abrams would run for president is in 2028. Not 2020 — that’s too soon. Not 2024 — the Democrat who vanquishes President Trump in 2020 will be up for re-election. No, the first opportunity is 2028. That’s her year.’

The feature story goes on to explain she charted out her life’s plan in an Excel sheet with goals including eradicating poverty, winning the gubernatorial election and, yes, getting elected president. First, of course, she must win her party’s nomination and wage an uphill battle against a Republican in November.
