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.
