Voting rights activist and former Democratic state lawmaker Stacey Abrams will face Republican incumbent Gov. Brian Kemp in Georgia’s gubernatorial general election in November.
Kemp and Abrams also went head-to-head in 2018 with the former winning the closest governor’s race in the state since 1966.
Will the second time be a charm for Abrams?
She’s recently released a political commercial that’s arguably one of the best of 2022 so far.
“Wow. I don’t wanna get all fanboy but EVERY frame was great,” legendary political consultant Paul Belaga told Crooked Media after watching the recently-released Stacey Abrams for Governor campaign ad.
“Every syllable was great.”
“… It’s a bio ad that defines her in terms of values… And not by her impressive (personal) resume; Spellman Collge, University of Texas, Yale Law, best-selling author, a phenomenally successful lawyer.”
“None of that is in there. It’s not about Stacey – it’s about YOU!,” Begala added.
The Abrams commercial even struck a chord with a Republican commenter who wrote the following on YouTube:
“You know, although I am a Republican and If I voted I would vote for a Republican, but like Stacy said ‘You don’t always have to agree with the person but still respect the person who is in Office’ … We are Americans and we work together regardless if we agree with the person or not. It doesn’t matter if you are a Republican or a Democrat or an Independent. What matters is you get out and Vote! God Bless fellow Georgians and also Stacey Abrams!”(via YouTube)

Unlike the divisiveness and fear-mongering we saw in JD Vance’s TV campaign commercial, Abrams’ ad conveys a sense of unity, optimism, and Southern values all while including people of various races in, both, urban and rural settings.
“Every frame is family, faith, and flag,” Begala uttered.
The TV ad also highlights her checklist of accomplishments as a Georgia public servant, legitimizing her track record and ability to get things done.
Again, it’s all about what she can do for Georgia.
“This is how you do it!” Begala uttered.
