Stacey Abrams Has A BIG Hillary Clinton Problem

Stacey Abrams has a Hillary Clinton Problem, and It Isn't Going Away

Per the RGA:

A week after becoming the Democrat gubernatorial nominee in Georgia, Stacey Abrams has a Hillary Clinton problem that isn’t going away. Just months after she referred to states that voted against her in the 2016 election as “backwards,” including Georgia, Clinton is now heavily touting her support for Abrams’ candidacy, claiming in a speech last week “I supported her in the primary and I look forward to supporting her campaign in the months to come.”

Clinton appears to have been referring to the secret robo-call she made on the last day of the Georgia Democrat gubernatorial primary for Abrams that was first reported by The New York Times. Fearing Clinton’s toxic image, the Abrams campaign made the call only to Democrat voters so it would “imperceptible to everyone else.”

Now that Abrams is the nominee, Clinton has done a poor job hiding her support for Abrams, pledging to continue backing her in the general election, making it clear that she may even be willing to come to Georgia this fall to campaign on her behalf. With Clinton’s record of bashing Georgia as a “backwards” state after voters rejected her in 2016, this raises a new question for Abrams: after trying to hide Clinton’s support in the primary, will she accept her support in the general election and welcome her to Georgia?
