Stacey Abrams Is One Step Closer to Becoming the Nation’s First Black Woman Governor

May 23, 2018, 11:39 AM

(ATLANTA) — Stacey Abrams won Georgia's Democratic primary in the gubernatorial race Tuesday, becoming the state's first woman nominee for governor from either major party.

If the former state House minority leader wins the general election in November, she'll become the first black woman governor in the U.S.

Abrams got a last-minute boost with an endorsement — in the form of a 60-second robo-call — from Hillary Clinton.
