Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), a presumptive presidential candidate in 2020, charged that if Stacey Abrams doesn’t win in Georgia, Republicans “stole it.”
His comments came during a speech at the National Action Network conference on the Democratic congressional agenda.
Here’s a rush excerpt:
BROWN: "We'll also never give in on voting rights. We have seen what -- Stacey Abrams doesn't live in Georgia, they stole it. It's clear. I say that publicly. It's clear. What they are trying to do in Florida to the gubernatorial candidate and the Senate candidate running for re-election. What they tried to do in Ohio with some success by voter purging. What they did in Georgia when they shut down rural precincts that were predominantly African-Americans, where many people simply don't have transportation to get to the polls. That's what they do. They can't win elections because there is way more of us than them. They can't win elections fairly. They win elections by redistricting. Voter suppression, and all the ways they try to scare people, particularly people of color.”
