She might not have won her state's governor's race, but America knows who Stacey Abrams is by now.
Google unveiled its annual list of the most searched figures in 2018, and the former Georgia gubernatorial candidate topped the list as the most Googled American politician for the year. According to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC), the bulk of the former Democratic candidate's clout came just before and after this year's midterm election. As for the locations where she was most searched, the AJC notes Atlanta and Washington, D.C., were the top two cities.
Abrams made headlines earlier this year when she emerged as the Democratic candidate for Georgia's highest office. Had she been able to defeat Republican opponent Brian Kemp, she would have made history as the first Black woman governor.
Although Abrams wasn't able to achieve that feat, her political career is far from over. Speaking at a Fortune event on December 11, Abrams teased a possible return to the political scene.
Her desired title remains a mystery; however, the former House minority leader is not ruling out the White House.
"I am open to all options, and it's too soon after the election to know exactly what I’m going to do," Abrams explained at the event.
