Stacey Abrams could become the first black woman governor in the United States


In addition to her political work, Abrams is also an award-winning writer of romantic novels. She writes under the name "Selena Montgomery," and her eight books have sold more than 100,000 copies.

Since releasing her personal financial data earlier this year, Abrams has faced control of financial mistakes and debts. In a column for Fortune, it is reflected in the fact that the IRS exceeds $ 50,000 in deferred taxes and owes more than $ 170,000 in debit cards and student loans.

"I'm in debt, but I'm not alone," wrote Abrams. "Debt is a bronze piece that weighs over three-quarters of Americans. It can determine whether we can run for the office, start a business, give up work that we hate, but should not – and can not – be an embarrassment for ambition. "

As her family's family, Abrams says she is responsible for the care of her parents, grandmother and niece. She told Baldwin that her experiences have shown how important it is for Georgian residents to "have a leader who can make choices to make sure everything is taken care of."

He also believes that poverty is unethical. "I think it is financially inefficient and I think it's a solution and I think it does not matter what room you are standing to meet these challenges, the opportunity to do things better is always there."

As a candidate governor, Abrams says he is committed to making housing more accessible by creating high quality educational opportunities for all children, enforcing anti-discrimination laws, implementing gun security laws, providing affordable health care and promoting reform of criminal justice.

At a recent rally in Macon, Georgia, she spoke about the role her identity plays, making her unique ability to serve as the next governor of the state. In Georgia, 21 per cent of black and Latino women live in poverty, compared with 11 per cent of white women.

"I do not want someone to vote for me because I'm black and no one has to choose my name because I'm a woman," says The Washington Post. "But you must know that because I am a black woman, I understand the obstacles to the opportunity in the state of Georgia, because I am a black woman, I understand how hard you have to work sometimes to get as much as you can, and because I am a black woman, I know when I make history, I make history you."
