Stacey Abrams on Monday did not directly respond to a question about a potential presidential bid, instead saying that she is focused on getting voting rights legislation passed.

During an appearance on CNN, host Erin Burnett asked the former Georgia gubernatorial candidate if she would consider running for the White House if President Biden decides against running for reelection.

"Is that something you would consider?" Burnett asked, referencing a Politico article that noted Democratic operatives expect her to consider a run for the White House if she is successful with another possible Democratic campaign for Georgia governor.

"My focus, my consideration, my efforts, my energy is being poured into making certain that we pass the Freedom to Vote Act, that we pass the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act and that we can have a conversation about elections after we do the work of protecting the democracy that undergirds those contests," Abrams responded.
