Macon Telegraph Makes Interesting Comparisons between Democrats Stacey Abrams and Stacey Evans Gubernatorial Campaigns

The Macon Telegraph had an interesting take on the gubernatorial campaigns of Democrats Stacey Abrams and Stacey Evans.

Here are there key reporting:

  • Stacey Abrams has comprehensive policies and plans and detailed positions on issues, while Evans seems to be offering Democratic talking points that barely scratch the surface.
  • Abrams has released: a highly technical Advanced Energy Jobs Plan; a 10-page Bold Action for a Brighter Future Plan that addresses education and child care; an eight-point criminal justice reform plan; a six-point veterans and military families plan; and a lengthy higher education plan that elaborates upon both cost and the specific legislative and executive pathways that Abrams would use to achieve her goals.
  • The irony is that Stacey Evans has run a campaign focused almost exclusively on revitalizing the HOPE scholarship, but has yet to produce any semblance of a plan outlining concrete steps to do so.
  • Governing a state as dynamic as Georgia requires two things — a real vision and a concrete plan for how to get it done. Evans doesn’t seem to have shown much of either.
 My take-away-from this is that it adds evidence to support Stacey Abrams.
