*Stacey Abrams, who ran and lost as the Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate, is not interested in running for the US Senate next year.

On Tuesday, in a video released to social media, she said her plans and are centered around doing everything I can do hep elect a Democrat to that seat next year.”

She went on also say …

“I am so grateful for all of the support and encouragement I have received from fellow Georgians to leaders of congress and beyond. However, the fights to be waged require a deep commitment to the job, and I do not see the U.S Senate as the best role for me in this battle our nations future.”

Because of the strong showing and minuscule loss in the governor’s race back in November, Abrams has been heavily courted to make a run for Senate or another bid for governor.

DSCC Spokesman Stewart Boss said in a statement that “Stacey Abrams would have been a great Senator, and so will the candidate who takes on Senator Perdue next fall.”

“Stacey and Georgia Democrats laid a strong foundation for 2020, and Senator Perdue will be held accountable for driving up health care costs, giving big corporations and millionaires like himself a tax break, and putting the president ahead of what’s right. His weaknesses are why Georgia is a great pickup opportunity.” added Boss.

While Abrams said in the video that she doesn’t know exactly what’s in store for her political future, she says that America is “under attack” and will continue to work to defeat acts of voter suppression in her home state and across the country.

Even though she’s saying not to running for the Senate/governorship, she is however, not ruling out joining the line up of 2020 presidential contenders. Last month, she told  “CBS This Morning” that her successes in “transforming the electorate” in her home state shows she’d be “just as capable of becoming the president of the United States as anyone running” right now.
