  • ♪ >> Stephen: HEY!

  • WELCOME BACK, EVERYBODY!

  • SHE IS A STAR OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY WHOSE GET-OUT-THE-VOTE

  • EFFORTS HAVE TRANSFORMED THE STATE OF GEORGIA.

  • PLEASE WELCOME BACK TO "A LATE SHOW," STACEY ABRAMS!

  • THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING HERE!

  • >> IT'S MY PLEASURE.

  • THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME BACK.

  • >> Stephen: WELL, YOU HAVE BEEN WORKING TIRELESSLY FOR THE

  • DEMOCRATIC PARTY TO SUCCEED TO HAVE VICTORY IN THE STATE OF

  • GEORGIA.

  • ARE YOU ALLOWING YOURSELF TIME TO CELEBRATE RIGHT NOW, OR IS

  • THERE TOO MUCH WORK TO BE DONE?

  • >> I HAD ABOUT 17 MINUTES ON SATURDAY AFTERNOON, I'M GOOD.

  • >> Stephen: THAT'S ALL YOU NEED?

  • >> NOW GET BACK TO WORK.

  • WE HAVE TO WIN TWO SENATE RACES, I CAN'T GOGGLE TOO LONG.

  • >> Stephen: I'M GOING GET TO THAT IN A HOME BUT I'LL DWELL ON

  • THIS A MOMENT MORE.

  • >> OKAY.

  • >> Stephen: BIDEN IS SAID TO BE THE FIRST PRESIDENTIAL

  • CANDIDATE TO WIN GEORGIA SINCE 1992.

  • YOU'RE BEING CREDITED FOR YOUR GET OUT OF VOTE EFFORT, YOUR

  • ORGANIZING OF GEORGIA.

  • HOW DID YOU DO IT?

  • >> I WANT TO MAKE SURE WE GIVE CREDIT TO THE GROUPS THAT HAVE

  • BEEN WORKING ON THIS A LONG TIME.

  • MY PART IS WHEN I BEGAN, I WANTED TO FOCUS ON MAKING SURE

  • WE WERE IN EVERY SINGLE COUNTY, AND I ADVANCED THAT INTO

  • MULTIPLE CYCLES.

  • IN 2018 I RAISED $4 MILLION FOR MY GUBERNATORIAL RACE AND WE

  • KEPT RAISING MONEY AFTER I LOST TO KEEP FOCUSING ON TEAMING THIS

  • INFRASTRUCTURE IN PLACE.

  • WE WORKED WITH OTHER ORGANIZATIONS, WE HELPED SEED

  • SOME OF THOSE GROUPS INCLUDING THE NEW GEORGIA PROJECT, WHICH I

  • FOUNDED, FIRE FIGHT, FIRE COUNT, AND WE HAD 2 MILLION VOTERS WHO

  • UNDERSTOOD THEIR VOICES WERE NEEDED AND THEY SHOWED UP.

  • >> Stephen: I KNOW YOU'RE DOING ALL THESE ORGANIZERS AND

  • EFFORTS WITH THESE OTHER FRAPS LONG BEFORE YOU RAN FOR GOVERNOR

  • BUT ONE OF THE HALL M OFO THAT CAMPAIGN WAS THE OBVIOUS VOTER

  • PURCHASE AND VOTER SUPPRESSION THAT WERE GOING ON UNDER THEN

  • SECRETARY OF STATE KEMP, AND I IMAGINE THAT MUST HAVE GIVEN YOU

  • EVEN MORE ENERGY FOR THIS EFFORT THAN BEFORE.

  • >> HE WAS A GALVANIZING FORCE FOR THE INTENSITY OF MY EFFORTS

  • THIS TIME, YES.

  • >> Stephen: DO YOU THINK THERE ARE ANY REPUBLICANS ON THE

  • NATIONAL LEVEL NOW GOING, OH, WOULD BE BETTER IF SHE WAS JUST

  • GOVERNOR.

  • NOW WE'VE LOST THE WHOLE DAMN STATE!

  • >> I HAD SOME TIME ON MY HANDS.

  • IF THEY WOULD HAVE LET ME HAVE THIS OTHER JOB, I PROBABLY WOULD

  • HAVE BEEN DISTRACTED.

  • >> Stephen: IDLE HANDS ARE DEMOCRACY'S WORKSHOP.

  • >> THERE YOU GO.

  • >> Stephen: HAVE YOU SEEN SOME OF THE MEMES ABOUT YOU ON THE

  • INTERNET?

  • >> I HAVE -- >> Stephen: PLEASE.

  • NO, NO.

  • >> Stephen: THIS IS MY FAVORITE.

  • THIS IS MY FAVORITE SO FAR BECAUSE I'M A "LORD OF THE

  • RINGS" FAN.

  • THIS IS YOU DEFEATING THE RICH KING OF ANGMAR IN LORD OF THE

  • RINGS.

  • YOU FOOL, NO MAN CAN FLIP ME!

  • I AM NO MAN!

  • >> NO MAN!

  • ( LAUGHTER ) >> Stephen: SO $92 IS THE LAST

  • TIME CLINTON WON.

  • >> YES.

  • >> Stephen: WHAT'S DIFFERENT NOW?

  • WHAT DO YOU THINK IS MOST DIFFERENT ABOUT GEORGIA NOW THAT

  • THEY WERE READY TO GIVE THEIR ELECTORAL VOTES TO A DEMOCRAT?

  • >> SO I WORKED ON THE '92 CAMPAIGN AS A COLLEGE STATE

  • AND AT THE TIME EVERY STATE OFFICE WAS HELD BY A DEMOCRAT

  • EXCEPT ONE AND WE LOST THE SENATE SEAT.

  • DEMOCRATS CONTROLLED THE LEGISLATURE FOR 130 YEARS.

  • BIOCIRCUMSTANCES WE HAD SEEN A DEMOGRAPHIC SHIFT BEGINNING BUT

  • AN I LOGICAL SHIFT RELEASE THE MINTING AND THAT'S WHEN

  • DEMOCRATS REALLY CONTROLLED THE STATE OF GEORGIA.

  • IN 2010 I PUT TOGETHER A 21 PAGE DECK I TRAVELED THE COUNTRY

  • SEEING DONORS WITH AND MY ARGUMENT WAS WE WERE HAVING A

  • DEMOCRATIC SHIFT HAPPENING THAT WE HAD TO HARNESS AND, TWO, HAD

  • AN INCOHERENT MESSAGE FOR 20th C HAD TO BE REFINED AND, THREE, WE

  • HAD TO BUILD A INFRASTRUCTURE THAT SOUGHT TO WIN WHO WAS WAS

  • ON THE TICKET.

  • WE INVESTED IN CITY COUNCIL RACES AND DEMOCRAT A. RACES ALL

  • THE WAY UP TO THE PRESIDENTIAL RACE.

  • I THINK THE BIG DIFFERENCE WAS OUR ABILITY TO REALLY MAINTAIN A

  • CONSISTENT EFFORT.

  • SO MANY GROUPS HAD BEEN DOING THIS WORK FOR A LONG TIME BUT

  • IT'S FEAST OR FAMINE.

  • WHEN A CANDIDATE WANTS TO INVEST, YOU GET THE RESOURCES

  • AND YOU STRUGGLE TO GET BY, AND WE WERE ABLE TO TO CREATE

  • SUSTAINABLE IN THE INFRASTRUCTURE WHICH MEANT WE

  • COULD WIN AGAIN AND AGAIN AND BUILD UP TO THE BIG VICTORY IN

  • NOVEMBER.

  • >> Stephen: WHEN IT BECAME CLEAR GEORGIA LOOKED LIKE IT

  • WOULD SWING OVER TO BIDEN'S SIDE, CAN YOU TALK ME THROUGH

  • THAT MOMENT MAYBE?

  • WAS IT FRIDAY MORNING?

  • >> IT WAS ACTUALLY WEDNESDAY.

  • WE HAD A PRETTY GOOD SENSE BECAUSE WE HAVE AN AMAZING DATA

  • TEAM.

  • BUT MY PARTNER IN THIS WORK AND I WERE TEXTING BACK AND FORTH

  • BECAUSE WE HAD THE NUMBERS WE THOUGHT WERE COMING FROM THE

  • EREMAINING COUNTIES, AN IT WAS THAT MORNING I CALLED HER AND I

  • SAID THIS IS THE FIRST TIME I'VE WOKEN UP IF A NOVEMBER WITHOUT

  • CURLING INTO THE FETAL POSITION FIRST.

  • AND SHE WAS, LIKE, I KNOW, I'M AFRAID, FEELS LIKE WE'RE

  • WINNING.

  • I'M, LIKE, I KNOW, BUT DON'T SAY IT OUT LOUD.

  • AND THE NUMBERS GOT BIGGER AND BIGGER AND WE GOT HAPPIER AND

  • HAPPIER.

  • >> Stephen: DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING TO SAY OUT THERE TO

  • DEMOCRATS?

  • I SAW SEVERAL THINK PIECES THIS WEEKEND WHERE DEMOCRATS OR JUST

  • POLITICAL WRITERS ARE SAYING THE DEMOCRATS WON BUT DID THEY

  • REALLY?

  • >> YEAH, WE REALLY WON.

  • ( LAUGHTER ) THERE IS AN ORANGE MENACE OF PEW

  • TRESSENS THAT WILL NO LONGER BE ABLE TO OCCUPY THE WHITE HOUSE.

  • >> Stephen: PUTRESSENCE, I WANT TO GET THAT DOWN.

  • >> THERE IS AN INCOMING PRESIDENT WHO HAD MORAL

  • LEADERSHIP AND CHARACTER AND WHO ACTUALLY BELIEVES IN SCIENCE AND

  • FACTS.

  • WE HAVE SEEN THE CHASE IN THE FACE OF LEADERSHIP BY ADDING

  • KAMALA HARRIS, A WOMAN OF COLOR SO THAT WOMEN AT LARGE AND OF

  • COLOR CAN SEE THEMSELVES IN THE HIGHEST POSITIONS OF THE LAND.

  • DID I MENTION TRUMP IS LEAVING?

  • THAT'S A BIG WIN.

  • WE HAVE TO GET THE REST OF IT DONE.

  • >> Stephen: WE HAVE TO TAKE A QUICK BREAK.

  • STICK AROUND, EVERYBODY.

  • WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK WITH MORE STACEY ABRAMS.
