Democrat Stacey Abrams launched a bid for Georgia governor on Wednesday, kicking off one of the most anticipated campaigns of the 2022 midterms.

Abrams is seeking a rematch with Republican Gov. Brian Kemp, who narrowly defeated her in 2018 in an open-seat race. Her launch video does not mention Kemp by name.

Democrats in and out of Georgia have long anticipated Abrams’ second run for the governor’s mansion, and no other notable Democrat is expected to get into the race.

Kemp, however, faces a primary challenge after facing the wrath of former President Donald Trump, who became the first Republican presidential candidate to lose Georgia since then-President George H.W. Bush in 1992. Former Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.) is considering primarying Kemp next spring.
