In the wake of Democratic victories in Georgia that will give the party control of the U.S. Senate, Vice President-elect Kamala Harris may be forced to relinquish her title as Queen (or Kween) of the Libs.
For months, professional journalists and other libs honored Harris as the coolest celebrity politician in America. They tweeted giddily and wrote entire articles about her fashionable shoe choices and epic clapbacks during the VP debate against Mike Pence.
Enter Stacey Abrams, the failed gubernatorial candidate who many believe is responsible for the success of Georgia Democratic Senate candidates Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff, who defeated their GOP opponents on Tuesday.
The deranged reactions from lib journos and celebs to the Democratic victories in Georgia suggest that Abrams is their new Queen, one who will remain a formidable obstacle to Harris's ruthlessly ambitious desire to be the first black female president.

Good argument to be made that Stacey Abrams is one of the most consequential women in US history.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: @staceyabrams is a hero. ❤️

Barack Obama: "It's clear that last night's showing, alongside President-Elect Biden's November victory in Georgia, is a testament to the power of the tireless and often unheralded work of grassroots organizing and the resilient, visionary leadership of Stacey Abrams."
