Democrat Could Become First Black Female Governor

posted by Bill Strange -

Georgia Democrats are making history by choosing the first black woman to be a major party candidate for governor there.  Stacey Abrams easily won the Democratic nomination for governor in the state. She's the former minority leader in the Georgia state House.  Abrams defeated former state Representative Stacey Evans.  Abrams scored big endorsements from Hillary Clinton and Senator Bernie Sanders, as well as other big-name lawmakers.  Abrams' opponent in November is yet unknown since none of the Republican candidates won enough votes to avoid the July 24th runoff.  Lieutenant Governor Casey Cagle and Secretary of State Brian Kemp will face off again in the runoff to decide which Republican will become Abrams rival.
