Stacey Abrams Endorses Joe Biden for President

Stacey Abrams has endorsed Joe Biden in his 2020 bid for the White House.

Abrams made the announcement early Tuesday, lauding the former vice president as the leader America needs.

“[He’s] a leader who will restore dignity, competence and compassion to the Oval Office while restoring America’s moral leadership around the world,” she said in a statement. “His commitment to fighting climate change, leading an economic recovery for all, and protecting every eligible American’s right to vote are among the many reasons why he must be the next President of the United States.

“While marginalized communities struggle under Donald Trump’s failed leadership and people of color face disproportionate consequences of COVID-19, Joe Biden will take no one for granted,” Abrams said. “I look forward to continuing my strong support for his candidacy and doing all I can to make sure he is elected this November.”

In 2018, Abrams, the former Democratic leader of the Georgia House of Representatives, was the state’s Democratic nominee for governor, the first time an African American woman had ever been the gubernatorial nominee for a major party in the United States.

After witnessing the threat to voting rights in her home state, Abrams founded Fair Fight, an organization dedicated to fair elections in Georgia and nationwide.

She is also one of the names floated as possible running mates for Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee.

The Biden campaign has previously announced more than 2,500 endorsements from national, state and local leaders, including current and former U.S. senators and representatives, governors, state elected officials, community leaders, and national security professionals.

Abrams joins several other Georgia leaders in endorsing Biden, including Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, Reps. John Lewis, Sanford Bishop, Hank Johnson and Lucy McBath, state Reps. Calvin Smyre, Billy Mitchell and Pedro Marin.
