While still awaiting whether former gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams (D) will announce for the Senate, ex-Columbus Mayor Teresa Tomlinson (D) formed a US Senate exploratory committee at the end of last week. While maintaining that she will yield to Ms. Abrams if the latter woman decides to run – Abrams indicated she will make a decision at some point this month – Ms. Tomlinson appears to be readying an effort to challenge Sen. David Perdue (D) if the former statewide nominee decides to go in another political direction.
For her part, Ms. Abrams says she is looking at the presidential race, the Senate campaign, and possibly waiting until 2022 to make another run for the Georgia Governorship. There is also a political rumor that former Vice President Joe Biden may tab her as an early running mate for his impending presidential venture.
