Demo­cracy for Amer­ica en­dorsed state House Minor­ity Lead­er Sta­cey Ab­rams (D) on Monday, pledging to sup­port her if she makes good on sig­nals to run on 2018. “DFA has 32,379 mem­bers in Geor­gia.”

Demo­cracy for Amer­ica Ex­ec­ut­ive Dir­ect­or Charles Cham­ber­lain: “Sta­cey Ab­rams is un­doubtedly the best can­did­ate to lead Geor­gia. She has a bold pro­gress­ive vis­ion of the state which in­cludes end­ing gen­er­a­tion­al poverty across Geor­gia.” (re­lease)

EMILY’s List Pres­id­ent Stephanie Schriock on Monday praised Ab­rams and said the group was closely watch­ing the race, not­ing that EMILY’s List awar­ded Ab­rams its first of Gab­ri­elle Gif­fords Rising Star Award in 2014. State Rep. Sta­cey Evans (D) may also run.

Schriock: “We have been really close with her [Ab­rams] for a long time. … She’s go­ing to an­nounce re­l­at­ively soon, and we are really ex­cited for her, and we’ll be mak­ing quick de­cisions about sup­port for Sta­cey. … We haven’t made any fi­nal de­cisions. We’re try­ing to fig­ure out the dy­nam­ics of that race.” (Hot­line re­port­ing)
