Abrams says White House is running & # 39; third & # 39; in the list of future plans, can wait until autumn
Abrams told the Wall Street Journal that she is "thrilled with the fact that so many have come to me for the presidency" and that what runs for president is "an important predominant because I believe We need the right kind of campaign for 2020. "
She further explained her plans on Thursday at MSNBC's" Morning Joe "and said she would make a decision on a short-term senate and that "I don't think you should actually take a stand on the White House before the fall."
"I think about it, I am real. I think the timing for me will not settle on the Senate. You can't run for an office unless you know it's the job you want to do, "Abrams said. "My first responsibility is to decide if a Senate runner is right for me, and then the next talks for myself will be if not the Senate, so what more?"
She continued: "I think the Senate's decision is pretty short-sighted. I was going to do it in March, but because of my travel, I had to push it back. But I want to make a decision this month. And then I don't think you should actually decide on the White House before the fall. "
Abrams, the former minority leader in Georgia's state house, attracted national attention last year during her bid to become the first black woman to be governor of the United States. She narrowly lost Georgia's governor election to Republican Brian Kemp in a disputed race and publicly expressed concerns over the results. On Wednesday, at the National Action Network Conference in New York, Abrams called Kemp, former Georgia's Secretary of State, an "electoral repression architect."
 In addition to weighing another gubernatorial bid, Abrams may decide to run in the senate battle in 2020 for the seat currently held by Republican late David Perdue. She may also decide to jump into the overcrowded field of Democrats who are refusing to take President Donald Trump by 2020.
The first voices of the Democratic President's primary will not be thrown before the Iowa caucus began in February 2020, But a number of factors could push Abrams into a decision on a white house run faster than the fall. The debates of the first democratic national committees are set for June and July this year. Although Abrams entered the race in the summer, other graduates will have more time to build their campaigns and recruit staff.
On MSNBC Thursday, Abrams also discussed his talks with former Vice President Joe Biden in connection with reports that Biden's team had discussed an "early choice of a companion" when he sees a 2020 bid.
Asked for reports that Biden discussed a common ticket with her are correct, Abrams replied: "Not at all."
Asked again, Abrams said she "had conversations with Joe Biden that he was running for president, that I was driving to the president, that I was driving for the Senate that I was driving to dogfighters."
Abrams said that "we did not talk about his primary strategy and most of the speculations I believe come because of beginners who were excited to see us together and I appreciate their enthusiasm. "
Echoing past comments, Abrams said she did not" believe you are running for second place "19659003] She continues nued," If I enter the race for president, I will enter the race for president but when we have a nominee, am i open to having conversations, i must not be someone running, i am open to conversation with someone.

Abrams was also asked for allegations that Biden made women feel uncomfortable in their Meetings – which led to a video response from Biden yesterday – and specifically mentioned Lucy Flores, the former Nevada congregation who was the first to come forward.
"I'm friends with Lucy Flores and I appreciate her bringing her story forward. I also have deep respect for Vice President Joe Biden," she said. "We can't get perfection as a litmus test. is not to be perfect, but to be responsible for saying, "I made a mistake, I understand it and here is what to do to reform as I move forward." And I think we sees Joe Biden doing it, I think the Vice President has acknowledged the discomfort he has caused, he has created a context for why it is his behavior, and he has confirmed that he will do something else. think that's what we should look for.
