RNC Chair McDaniel: Dems' All-Star Game antics – MLB fell for Georgia election spin but rest of US catching on
MLB relocating All-Star game will play ‘big role’ in 2022 Senate elections: Clay Travis
Outkick founder Clay Travis tells ‘America’s Newsroom’ Major League Baseball relocating its All-Star game will impact the 2022 Senate elections with Sen. Raphael Warnock potentially running against former NFL player Herschel Walker.
In March, President Joe Biden, voting rights activist and former Georgia State Rep. Stacey Abrams and their Democrats wielded cancel culture as a weapon and robbed the state of Georgia out of $100 million.
Democrats, enabled by their allies in the mainstream media, built a cynical narrative of lies about Georgia’s election laws to bully Major League Baseball into moving its All-Star Game out of Atlanta.
Their talking points were as hyperbolic as they were false: Democrats referred to Georgia’s common-sense election reforms as “Jim Crow 2.0” and derided popular voting safeguards like voter ID and a ban on ballot trafficking as inherently restrictive.
With the All-Star Game and its accompanying economic windfall taking place this week in Denver – a largely white city, in sharp contrast to Atlanta’s incredible diversity – it’s worth reflecting on the real-world damage that Democrat lies about election integrity can cause.
The Georgia election reforms in question actually make it easier to vote and harder to cheat, and most of its initiatives are widely popular. The reforms expand early voting to 17 days, giving the Peach State more early voting than blue-state strongholds like New York and Delaware.
This legislation also includes a ban on ballot trafficking – the controversial practice of paid political operatives directly harvesting ballots from voters – which is a bipartisan win for Georgia’s voters. Republicans and Democrats alike have a shared interest in preventing partisan operatives from interfering with the ballot’s chain of custody.
The provision was set to expire in early 2021. So when Georgia Republicans passed their legislation codifying the requirement to have at least one drop-box in each of Georgia’s 159 counties, they actually secured the use of drop-boxes in the Peach State. Republicans are expanding access to voting, not restricting it.
This is why the RNC is fully invested in correcting the record on Georgia’s election law reforms by exposing Democrats’ lies.
We recently made a 7-figure ad buy highlighting the Democrats All-Star Game scam and held a successful event in Atlanta this weekend rallying Republicans in our efforts to hold Democrats accountable.
Our election integrity website, protectthevote.com, is full of key information pointing out the inconsistencies in the Democrats narrative about Georgia and other states trying to improve their elections.
We have also intervened in the Biden Department of Justice’s power-grab lawsuit against the state of Georgia, fighting back against Democrat efforts to legally strong-arm the state into making its elections less secure.
Democrats have established their power grab playbook: dishonesty, hyperbole, and grandstanding. Their arguments universally lack substance and wither under any level of scrutiny.
Unfortunately, in their cynical pursuit of power, Democrats were successful in robbing the state of Georgia of a much-needed economic windfall.
Americans won’t fall for their tricks again because the conversation around election integrity is clear: in Georgia and nationwide, voters support Republican efforts to make it easier to vote and harder to cheat.
