Abrams has gone from losing the Georgia governor’s race to being a heavily recruited Democratic star. It’s a dramatic rise often fueled by the promotional spending of Fair Fight Action, a nonprofit she founded to promote voting rights. They can accept unlimited sums of money, which could be a problem if she runs for office again. There is no proof of illegal activity. But donation limits could be applied retroactively to the group’s spending if she runs for federal office. (AP Photo/John Amis)
