Today on #thedownload  Stacey Abrams has made history!

She’s the first Black woman to win the Georgia democratic gubernatorial primary, beating out Stacey Evans to earn her spot to run for governor.

Abrams is a rising star in the Democratic party. She grew up one of five children in Mississippi, graduated from Spelman College and Yale Law School and even wrote romance novels.

Ambram’s mission is to give every Georgia citizen the opportunity to thrive. But she faces a big challenge ahead as Georgia has traditionally been a red state.
