Stacey Abrams, last year’s Democratic nominee for Georgia governor, will announce Monday or Tuesday whether she plans to run for the U.S. Senate in 2020, two sources familiar with her plans told ABC News Friday.
Abrams has been in the national spotlight since running a competitive 2018 campaign against Republican Brian Kemp, losing the governor’s race by a narrow margin. In February, she gave the Democratic Party’s response to President Donald Trump‘s State of the Union address.
Abrams reportedly has been mulling whether to challenge incumbent GOP U.S. Sen. David Perdue‘s re-election bid next year or mount a bid for the presidency.
Former Vice President Joe Biden was considering Abrams as a potential running mate in the 2020 presidential contest. However, she publicly shot down that idea, declaring she wasn’t interested in running “for second place.”
