Stacey Abrams: I'm running for governor and am $200,000 in debt
Yahoo Finance ^ | July 26, 2018 | Turner Cowles

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 shouldn’t 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 haven’t included it in our breakdown of what she owes).

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.

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?

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?

Whatchatalkingabout?

There is no such thing as management of affairs of state. When the only solution needed to fix all problems is to raise taxes, then, ain't no problem. Socialism 101.

Just who you want governing a state.

Someone financially responsible.

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.
