Stacey Abrams, an unsuccessful candidate for Georgia governor in 2018, plans to be president by 2040.

Abrams, a Democrat, made her comments during an interview with FiveThirtyEight posted on Friday.

Asked if she believed voters could elect her as president within the next two decades, she replied: “Yes, I do.

“That’s my plan and I’m very pragmatic.”

Abrams also was asked how it feels to be discussed as a potential 2020 vice presidential pick as a way to “balance out” a white nominee.

“I accept that I exist in the political zeitgeist in a very specific way,” she said. “And that we as a nation have very binary notions of politics. You're a Democrat or Republican, you're a man or a woman, you're black or you're white  . . . we don't do a lot of nuance."

And she added: “While I may chafe a bit at what spawns the question, I’m very proud of why I’m even in the conversation because I’m not in the conversation just because I’m a black woman.”

FiveThirtyEight noted she lost her bid to become Georgia governor by just 1.4 percentage points.
