Stacey Abrams is expected to announce on Tuesday that she will not throw her hat into the ring for the Democratic presidential primaries. Abrams ran unsuccessfully in Georgia's 2018 gubernatorial election, but she captured the nation's attention despite the loss, and had been tossing around the idea of challenging for a seat in the Oval Office publicly for months. But people familiar with Abrams said she ultimately decided against it. Instead, she'll reportedly work in battleground states to more closely monitor voter protection ahead of the 2020 general election. Abrams is reportedly expected to be a popular name considered for the vice presidency.
