Stacey Abrams, center, speaks with the media during a 2018 gubernatorial campaign stop at the Ironworkers Local 709 apprenticeship shop in Pooler, Georgia.

Stacey Abrams says she’s not campaigning to be Joe Biden’s vice president — but, if you ask her if she’d take the job, she won’t shy away from sharing her qualifications. 

The former Georgia House Minority Leader and and 2018 gubernatorial candidate joins Wedge Issues host and Cap Times opinion editor Jessie Opoien this week, along with Cap Times politics reporter Briana Reilly, to discuss her voting rights group, Fair Fight, and what she thinks the rest of the country can learn from Wisconsin’s spring election. Abrams also discussed her Madison roots and, of course, the presidential election.
