Remember That Time When Stacey Abrams Was Charged With Voter Fraud?

Democrats are attempting to replicate the aggressive voter registration and mobilization program that drove their recent wins in Georgia, seeing such an application as their best hope for competing in a handful of Republican-leaning states next year.

Their struggles are modeled off of the work of Stacey Abrams, the former Georgia state House minority leader and gubernatorial candidate who spent years developing a broad Democratic political infrastructure in her state. Abrams is broadly credited with hastening Georgia’s shift toward battleground status after decades as a GOP stronghold.

In Iowa, state and local Democratic leaders are rolling out the New Iowa Project — named after Abrams’s New Georgia Project — a group that will concentrate on voter registration, turnout and education efforts. In Missouri, where Democrats are gunning for retiring Sen. Roy Blunt’s (R-Mo.) vacated seat, activists have established a similar initiative inspired by Abrams’s work in Georgia.
