Reverend Raphael Warnock has just been announced as the winner in the first of Georgia’s senate run-off elections. The woman given credit for the state’s swing from Republican red to Democrat blue is former House of Representatives member and voting rights supporter Stacey Abrams. We take a closer look at her education, campaigning, and answer the question – does Stacey Abrams have a husband? Is she married? Let’s find out.
