Stacey Abrams Says Her Ambition is To Be President

'You cannot have those things you refuse to dream of....'

Failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams reiterated this week that she wants to be president someday.

“Do I hold it as an ambition? Absolutely,” she told CBS News

“And even more importantly, when someone asks me if that’s my ambition, I have a responsibility to say yes, for every young woman, every person of color, every young person of color, who sees me and decides what they’re capable of based on what I think I am capable of,” she added. “Again, it’s about, you cannot have those things you refuse to dream of.”

Abrams, who has never held an office higher than the state level, has insisted that she will run for the White House eventually.

She told FiveThirtyEight last year that she “absolutely” believes a woman of color will be elected as president in the next 20 years, and when asked if she believes “they’ll elect you,” Abrams replied: “Yes. I do. That’s my plan. And I’m very pragmatic.”

After failing to win Georgia’s governor’s race in 2018, Abrams tried to clinch the vice presidential nomination during the 2020 election cycle.

However, she was unsuccessful at that too.

Abrams still claims the 2018 gubernatorial race was stolen from her, even though there is no evidence at all to support her allegations.

Several critics have pointed out that Abrams’s unfounded claims are no better than Trump’s were about the 2020 presidential election, but Abrams insisted she is not at fault.

“Words matter,” Abrams said. “What I have fought for, and what I have said consistently, what even they will admit – those who are unhappy with me – is that I never once filed a challenge to make myself governor of Georgia. I have always ever fought to make certain that every vote got counted and every person got included.”
