Failed Georgia Dem Gov Candidate Stacey Abrams: 2020 "On The Table"

Abrams flipped right after saying 2028 is the earliest she would run for president.

Politico reports:

Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams said today that she had long seen 2028 as the "earliest" she could see herself running for president but later tweeted "2020 is definitely on the table" as she weighs her next political move.

Abrams, in an interview at SXSW in Austin, Texas, referred to a quote from her book where she said she keeps a spreadsheet to document her goals.

"In the spreadsheet with all the jobs I wanted to do, 2028 would be the earliest I would be ready to stand for president because I would have done the work I thought necessary to be effective in that job," Abrams said.

After the interview, Abrams insisted in a tweet that the comment did not mean she has ruled out running for president next year.

"In #LeadFromTheOutside, I explore how to be intentional about plans, but flexible enough to adapt. 20 years ago, I never thought I’d be ready to run for POTUS before 2028. But life comes at you fast," Abrams tweeted. "2020 is definitely on the table..."

Abrams' former campaign manager, Lauren Groh-Wargo, also tweeted after the interview that the quote referring to the old spreadsheet did not mean Abrams was ruling out running for president next year.
