Stacey Abrams, the former Democratic gubernatorial nominee in Georgia, said Wednesday that she is "just as capable of becoming the president of the United States" as anyone seeking the presidency.




Abrams, who has not said whether she plans to run for president in 2020, added during an interview on "CBS This Morning" that she is "deeply appreciative of those who have encouraged me to run for a variety of offices."




"I will say the presidency wasn’t top of mind to begin with, but I think the success I had in our election, transforming the electorate, the work I’ve done as a business leader, as a civic leader, as a political leader, positions me to be just as capable of becoming the president of the United States as anyone running," she said.




"My responsibility, though, is to make sure I’m running for the right reasons and at the right time," Abrams added.
