Speaking to CBS Sunday morning, author and voting rights advocate Stacey Abrams said she "absolutely" hopes to run for president.
"Do I hold it as an ambition? Absolutely," Abrams said to CBS Sunday Morning's Erin Moriarty.
"And even more importantly," she said, "when someone asks me if that's my ambition, I have a responsibility to say yes, for every young woman, every person of color, every young person of color, who sees me and decides what they're capable of based on what I think I am capable of. Again, it's about you cannot have those things you refuse to dream of."
"How do you have any time for a personal life?" Moriarty asked a bit later. Abrams said that her work takes up most of her time.
"Here's my point: I would love to give priority to my personal life," Abrams said. "The last year has made that a little less possible. I was dating someone before the pandemic hit. It ended before the pandemic did."
Abrams was asked about the 2018 gubernatorial election, which she maintains that she won, though it brought Brian Kemp into the statehouse.
"Some people say," she was asked, "then what is the difference between Stacey Abrams not conceding the election in 2018 and Trump not conceding the election in 2020."
"Words matter," she said, noting that the difference is that she didn't pose a legal challenge to the results. Abrams' voting advocacy group Fair Fight is credited with turning Georgia blue in 2020 with a victory for Biden, and in 2021 with two senatorial run-off elections going to Democrat candidates Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock.
Abrams was on the show to discuss the romance novels she has authored under a pseudonym, as well as her latest book, under her own name.
