Skip to comments.Stacey Abrams: I'm running for governor and am $200,000 in debt

Stacey Abrams is running for governor in Georgia. She would be the first black woman to be elected governor of a state in American history if she were to win the election. But she faces some major roadblocks.
The office of governor was staunchly Democratic in Georgia until Sonny Perdue was elected in 2002. He was reelected in 2006 and was succeeded by another Republican, Gov. Nathan Deal, in 2010.
Abrams wrote an op-ed for Fortune in April, in which she argued her personal debt shouldnt disqualify her from running for governor. She owes more than $227,000 in credit card debt, student loan debt and back taxes. She also owes $178,500 in real estate debt and $4,434 on a car loan (but since those are assets as well as a debt, we havent included it in our breakdown of what she owes).

Sounds like a solid Dhim credit profile
Hoping to win so taxpayers can pay off her debt?
That’s OK - she’ll more than make that up once she’s elected...
Good. Grief. If she has so mismanaged her own affairs, how can she manage those of the state? This is proves the Democrat Party’s deterioration.
They should just apply to their #1 democrats financial donor Soros and the Millions appear overnight.
Weren’t the Democrats just whining about the fact that Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh had built up (and then paid off) large debts buying sports tickets?
Yeah, but how much money does she have stashed in the freezer?
Identity politics is far more important than ANY other issue for the Left.
All democrat resume builders. If Bernie Sanders can go from broke to 3 homes through political office, why can’t she?
And Osassio-Cortez too?
$227,00 in CREDIT CARD DEBT????? She owes BACK TAXES??? THAT should eliminate her from even RUNNING!
Somehow this must be because of racism.
AND, How bout Ol Harry and his sons..blood and inlaw..
Did they make all that money B4 he was a congresscritter, or after ??
Just who you want governing a state.
Someone financially responsible.
“Somehow this must be because of racism.”
Yeh.... I’m missing that DEBT GENE too....
If we’re OK with Judge having debt, shouldn’t we be OK with Stacey Abrams having debt? Just being a Democrat is typically enough to disqualify her, as far as I’m concerned.
