It can be easy to feel discouraged in today’s American political climate. But tonight, we witnessed a major reason to feel hopeful.
Tonight, former House minority leader Stacey Abrams won the Democratic nomination to become Georgia’s Governor. Not just any Governor.
Georgia’s first female Governor.
Georgia’s first African-American Governor.
America’s first black woman to Govern any state in the history of our United States.
Tonight is a landmark because Senator Abrams represents all “unapologetic progressives” across this nation. She represents everyday hardworking people who fight tooth and nail for what is right because they lead with their heart and are guided by their values.
Senator Abrams step toward victory shows us that voters aren’t asleep at the wheel — that they overwhelmingly demand real representation over a truly dysfunctional status quo.
Thank you for being with me on this journey to a better future.
Together in victory,
