    (Reuters) – Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams, a rising Democratic Party star who narrowly fell short of becoming the first female black U.S. governor, said on Tuesday she would not run for the U.S. Senate in 2020 because it was not “the best role” for her.

    “The fights to be waged require a deep commitment to the job and I do not see the U.S. Senate as the best role for me in this battle for our nation’s future,” Abrams said in a video posted on Twitter, adding she would work to ensure the state elected a Democrat to the seat.

    Abrams stands at the forefront of a diverse and younger generation of Democratic Party leaders catapulted onto the national stage in last year’s midterm elections, and has been discussed as a possible 2020 White House candidate.

    Her profile continued to climb when party officials picked her in February to deliver their response to Republican President Donald Trump’s State of the Union speech.
