Stacey Abrams' rally marked the launch of Fair Fight 2020, an initiative that plans staff, fund, and train voter protection operations in 20 states in 2019 to fight voter suppression and prepare for the 2020 general election.

Former Democratic Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams said championing voters’ rights leading up to 2020 elections wouldn’t prohibit her from accepting an invitation for a higher office, if the situation presented itself to her.

That, though, was not why she was at Annistown Elementary School in Snellville on Saturday afternoon. Abrams gave a speech in front of supporters at the school that also served as a symbolic site for the rally. Annistown did not open on time as a voting precinct on Election Day in 2018 because of malfunctioning voting machines and cards.
