Stacey Abrams began her official public campaign for Georgia governor this week with rallies around the state, a push for Medicaid expansion and some bashing of incumbent Republican Brian Kemp.

Abrams’s campaign also is putting at least $1 million into her first television and digital ad, which debuted Tuesday. The 60-second spot focuses on her accomplishments since losing the governor’s race to Kemp in 2018. It calls for “One Georgia” and highlights the medical debt Abrams’s Fair Fight Action political group paid for 68,000 Georgians since her defeat.
