Stacey Abrams: First Black Woman Ever Nominated for Governor by Major Party
Abrams made history on Tuesday.
Georgia's Stacey Abrams has now become the first black American woman to win her party's nomination for governor. Abrams beat Stacey Evans, a successful attorney and legislator, for the nomination. Next she will face the winner of the Republican nomination, either Casey Cagle or Brian Kemp. Abrams, the former minority leader in Georgia's House of Representatives, said: "We are writing the future of the next chapter of Georgia where no one is unseen, no one is unheard, and no one is uninspired."
