"On Wednesday, Sen. Johnny Isakson, a three-term incumbent from Georgia, announced that he would retire from office at the end of 2019. For a brief moment, the Republican’s announcement reignited a question that has been lingering for months: Will this push Stacey Abrams, one of the highest-profile figures to emerge from the 2018 midterm elections, to run for national office?

It didn’t take long for Abrams, a former minority leader in the Georgia House and the first black woman to be a gubernatorial nominee for a major political party, to offer her answer — the same one she’s given at various points in recent months: Thanks, but I’m good.

“Leader Abrams’ focus will not change: she will lead voter protection efforts in key states across the country, and make sure Democrats are successful in Georgia in 2020,” an Abrams spokesperson said in a statement on Wednesday.

”While she will not be a candidate herself, she is committed to helping Democratic candidates win both Senate races next year.”
