It was skipping a get together in Atlanta this week…..
But it has people wondering about how close the iconic Goregia politican will align herself with her parties national leader President Biden…
With Biden’s numbers in the 40″s and a failed effort to get something national; black organisation want dearly, a Voting Rights Law upgrade….

Seth Bringman, a spokesperson for Abrams’s campaign, slammed “false” narratives about her absence from Biden’s speech, including the notion that she skipped the event because she was denied a speaking slot.
“It’s a disservice to voters across the country and a waste of time and energy amid the fight of our lives for the freedom to vote that unnamed aides would spread false rumors rather than help build momentum for this once-in-a generation opportunity to lead,” Bringman said in a statement to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Still, her absence from Tuesday’s speech came at a particularly trying moment for Biden. His approval rating has continued a months-long slide and now stands near its lowest-ever point, according to the data website FiveThirtyEight….
