Democrat Stacey Abrams is running to be the Governor of Georgia yet again. In 2018, Abrams launched a gubernatorial campaign. However, she was bested by current Georgia Republican Governor Brian Kemp.
Kemp is running for re-election, although he’s currently facing a primary challenge from former Sen. David Perdue. Perdue’s campaign pitch, in a nutshell, is that Kemp has been scared of Abrams and allowed her to pull Georgia’s strings behind the scenes.
Abrams, for her part, is currently in some trouble of her own. The leftist gubernatorial candidate was recently photographed with many children wearing face coverings. However, Abrams was maskless in this photo.
It caused a major stir because Abrams, like other Democrats, has been all on board with mask mandates. Yet, she can’t abide by these mandates.
Kemp, Perdue, and others call her out in light of such evident hypocrisy. According to the National Review, Abrams has responded to criticism of highly questionable fashion.
No one can argue that it’s a bad look for a pro-mask mandate politician to be photographed maskless amid a sea of masked children. It’s mainly a bad look when this politician wants to be the governor of a state.
Nevertheless, Abrams didn’t address her hypocrisy when responding to critics. Instead, Abrams tried to gaslight everyone by declaring Republicans are racist for pointing out her hypocrisy during Black History Month.
Abrams’ decision to ignore the very same mask mandates she’s advocated so firmly has nothing to do with Black History Month, as many Republicans have pointed out. Instead, it has to do with Democrats thinking they can issue autocratic mandates for everyone else and then continue with their lives as if nothing happened.
Just as Abrams’ 2018 Georgia gubernatorial campaign failed, history appears bound to repeat itself.
Although Perdue and Kemp are currently sparring to win the Georgia Republican Party’s nomination, polls show that both Republicans would defeat Abrams in a general election match-up.
Having Abrams as governor of Georgia would be an absolute nightmare. It also seems like most Georgians are aware of this.
She would raise taxes, erode school choices, implement draconian mandates, and otherwise follow in the footsteps of other failed leftist leaders.
Currently, Perdue and Kemp say she won’t get anywhere near the governor’s mansion. Time will tell which Republican ends up facing her later this year.
