While Kemp and Perdue battle, Stacey Abrams wishes you, 'Merry Christmas'

Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams puts coal in the stockings of Republicans who want to paint Dems as waging the "War on Christmas" in the Peach State. As the article notes, Abrams, the daughter of two Methodist ministers, doesn't hesitate to wish her fellow Georgians a "Merry Christmas."

While Gov. Brian Kemp and former U.S. Sen. David Perdue batter each other with scathing attacks, Democrat Stacey Abrams keeps trying to stay above the fray.

The latest example of that comes this morning, with a new radio ad that wishes Georgians a “Merry Christmas.” It continues:

"The past year has been too hard for too many. But I have faith… faith that with the right leadership we can build a Georgia where all have the opportunity to thrive. Next year and beyond, regardless of your zip code, your background or access to power, I’ll be fighting for you."

The ad will air statewide for 10 days, and will play mostly on Black, gospel and rural radio stations. Some of the stations have conservative-leaning audiences, a reminder that Abrams can afford to branch out beyond her base without a Democratic primary to worry about.


It’s so positive, in fact, it may remind you of the days when a pair of puppy ads from now-Sen. Raphael Warnock proved that keeping it positive can get you elected in Georgia, especially if your opponents spend most of election season slinging mud at each other.

It’s going to take a ton of work and lots of contributions. 2022 will be busy in the Peach State!
