In last week’s election, former Georgia House of Representatives minority leader, Stacey Abrams, made history and made it one step closer to becoming the first Black female governor of Georgia and in the country.
Abrams focused on minority voters in the rural areas. In the November election Abrams will run against Republican Candidate Casey Cagle.
In a recent interview with Cosmo Abrams stated,
“My being a Black woman is not a deficit. It is a strength. Because I could not be where I am had I not overcome so many other barriers. Which means you know I’m relentless, you know I’m persistent, and you know I’m smart.”
