Georgia’s WIN List is proud to endorse former House Democratic Leader Stacey Abrams, the Democratic gubernatorial nominee. Abrams leads a slate of the most diverse candidates the Georgia Democratic party has ever fielded.
Leader Abrams, a businesswoman, attorney, and best selling author, grew up with five siblings in Gulfport, Mississippi. Despite their own financial struggles, her parents made serving others a way of life and instilled in her the values of faith, family, service, and responsibility.
With an undergraduate degree from Spelman and a law degree from Yale, Stacey Abrams was first elected to the Georgia House in 2006. By 2010, she rose to become the first woman to lead either party in the Georgia General Assembly and the first African American to lead in the House of Representatives.
