Stacey Abrams and Lauren Groh-Wargo (Live!)
â€œThe phrase â€˜identity politicsâ€™ is a weaponization of the Democratsâ€™ structural advantage in elections from now until eternity,â€ says Stacey Abrams.In this live interview from 2019â€™s Code conference, Kara Swisher and I sat down with Abrams and her campaign manager, Lauren Groh-Wargo. Abrams lost the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial election, but became a Democratic superstar in the process. She was tapped to give the partyâ€™s response to Trumpâ€™s State of the Union, and sheâ€™s mentioned often as a top-tier vice president pick for 2020, and perhaps a candidate for the presidency herself.This conversation makes it clear why. Abrams says more interesting things in an hour than most politicians do in a year. Her take on identity politics is worth the conversation alone, but she also offers one of the clearest discussions of the role of regulation in an advanced economy Iâ€™ve heard. We also talk about her 2020 plans, why sheâ€™s not running for Georgiaâ€™s Senate seat, why she thinks Democrats arenâ€™t in as much Senate recruiting trouble as the conventional wisdom holds, whether America is still a democracy, and much more.Itâ€™s particularly interesting to hear Abrams alongside her longtime friend and campaign manager, Groh-Wargo, whoâ€™s now the CEO of Fair Fight Action, the organization they founded to push for free and fair elections. Where Abrams is effortless with narrative, Groh-Wargo is tactical and specific. Listening to them play off each other, you get a much clearer sense of the strategic partnership and electoral theories at the core of Abramsâ€™s 2018 run, and that might power whatever she does next.
