Georgia Republican Sen. Johnny Isakson announced this morning he will step down at the end of 2019 due to his battle with Parkinson’s disease.

People on social media brought up Stacey Abrams, but she immediately shot down the idea.

Isakson said on Wednesday that his “health challenges are taking their toll on me, my family and my staff.” Unfortunately, Parkinson’s disease continues to progress. He is still in physical therapy from a fall in July. He also had surgery this week “to remove a growth” on a kidney.

Abrams has refused to admit she lost the Georgia gubernatorial race in 2018. I guess since she still holds the belief she is the governor of Georgia she cannot run for Senate. It’s against Georgia law to hold both offices.

The left has continued to keep her in the spotlight as some have tried to convince her to run for president, accept a vice president pick, or run for the Georgia Senate seat in 2020 against incumbent Republican Sen. David Perdue.

But even with two seats up for grab Abrams stressed she will stick to her next project.

The New York Times interviewed Abrams earlier this month about her decision not to run for president. She said she would remain open to run as vice president, but wants to concentrate on her group Fair Fight 2020.

Abrams believes her group will help clear up voter irregularities.
