Stacey Abrams is proving that resilience is her middle name, revealing on Monday that she is considering a run for a Georgia Senate seat in 2020, or maybe even governor again in 2022, and of course, there’s always the presidential election to consider.

According to Politico, when asked about a presidential run, Abrams acknowledged that she had not really thought about it, but she did not completely rule out the possibility.

“I am open to all options, and it’s too soon after the election to know exactly what I’m going to do,” she said.

What she has truly considered, however, is going up against Republican Sen. David Perdue in 2020, or once again challenging Gov.-elect Brian Kemp in 2022.

“I am thinking about both,” she told the news site.

“Georgia is my state,” she added. “And the changes I talked about in this campaign remain changes I believe are necessary for our state to continue to progress, to serve the entirety of our state, and that the issues that I raised remain urgent and important.”

Abrams spoke to Politico after a conference that was organized by the professor donor network Way to Win, which put some $22 million to political efforts in the past election season.

Although Abrams “lost” in the 2018 gubernatorial race, she remains unfazed and determined, slamming voter suppression and  what she called a “systemic attempt to narrow the electorate” in Georgia

“The Deep South is rising again,” Abrams said. “And we will not stop.”
