Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Stacey Abrams knows that everyone in Georgia didn’t have the same opportunity she did growing up.
S. Rae Peoples is ready to do everything she can to help Stacey Abrams, the Democratic leader of the Georgia Statehouse, become the nation’s first black female elected governor.
The Democrats not only lost the White House in 2016; in the wake of the election, they are in possession of 11 fewer Senate seats, more than 60 fewer House seats, at least 14 fewer governorships and more than 900 fewer seats in state legislatures. The GOP controls the governorships of more than a third of the states, the most since 1922.
She united the Democratic Party’s competing wings to launch her historic campaign. Now she has to turn out a different kind of electorate.
