Stacey Abrams vows to ‘never stop running’ despite conceding to Gov. Brian Kemp

Failed Democratic candidate Stacey Abrams conceded to Georgia Governor Brian Kemp on Tuesday evening, but her back-to-back losses won’t stop her from staying in the spotlight.

In her concession speech, Abrams remarked that she was “doing the responsible thing” by suspending her campaign, but that doesn’t mean her work is over. This may have been a reference to her infamous refusal to concede to Kemp in 2018, alleging voter suppression had rigged the election. But with so much talk over the last two years regarding election deniers, Abrams opted to look toward the future instead.

Unfortunately, it looks like her future will include continuing to stay in politics.

“Tonight, I am doing clearly what is the responsible thing, I am suspending my campaign for governor,” she announced. “I may no longer be seeking the office of governor, but I will never stop doing everything in my power to make sure the people in Georgia have a voice.”

“While I may have not crossed the finish line, that doesn’t mean that I won’t stop running for a better Georgia. Even though my fight — our fight — for the governor’s mansion came up short, I’m pretty tall,” Abrams quipped.

But while Democrats may be happy to hear that this isn’t the end of the Stacey Abrams Show, not everyone is as enthusiastic:
