Stacey Abrams' next move: Senator, governor ... president?

By The Associated Press

ATLANTA (AP) — Stacey Abrams didn't win the Georgia governor's race last November, but she's a hot commodity in Democratic politics anyway.

Abrams is the top recruit for a Senate race in 2020 as Democrats try to win back a majority. She's considering another run for governor in 2022. And there are plenty of party activists who want her to consider joining the already crowded Democratic presidential field.

The 45-year-old wouldn't be the first November loser in the mix. Texan Beto O'Rourke is considering the race, as well, after losing a tight Senate race in 2018 to Republican Ted Cruz.

Abrams has become a national voting rights activist since her close race.

She's expected to announce her Senate intentions in early April.
