Abrams notches another House Democrat endorsement

U.S. Rep. David Scott endorsed Stacey Abrams for governor on Wednesday, making him the third of four House Democrats from Georgia to back the Atlanta legislator's campaign against Stacey Evans.

What makes Scott different is that he's probably the most conservative of the quartet -- which means Abrams has swept the political spectrum.  Scott called Abrams "undoubtedly the most qualified person in the race."

He joins Reps. John Lewis and Hank Johnson in backing her bid. That leaves U.S. Rep. Sanford Bishop as the lone House Democrat not to pick a side yet.
