Stacey Abrams announced plans to play a key role in the 2020 elections—but not as a candidate. Abrams is launching Fair Fight 2020, a multi-state initiative to protect the vote.
Fair Fight 2020 is run by Lauren Groh-Wargo, Abrams’ 2018 campaign manager, and the two women will be taking their hard lessons of how bad voter suppression can be to 20 states. “I think we could see a new level of intimidation and intentional confusion,” Groh-Wargo told The Washington Post, pointing out that a three-decade consent decree governing the Republican National Committee’s “ballot security” efforts has now lapsed. “The Democratic Party and those who care about free and fair elections need to be prepared. It’s really important that officials at all levels and that candidates and lawyers and volunteers are ready to help insure voters have good information so they can cast their votes and not be harassed or intimidated away from their constitutional right to vote.”
