Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams met with top Democratic leaders in Washington this week as she considers a Senate campaign next year, two sources familiar with the meetings confirmed to POLITICO.

Abrams sat down separately with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto (Nev.), chair of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, on Thursday in Washington, according to the two sources. The meetings were first reported by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Abrams, who lost Georgia's gubernatorial race last year, is considered the top recruit to challenge first-term Republican Sen. David Perdue. Abrams said in a radio interview earlier this week that she would make a decision on her next steps by the end of March, mentioning both a potential Senate campaign or a rematch against GOP Gov.-elect Brian Kemp in 2022.
