Stacey Abrams says Republicans do not know how one can win with out voter suppression
Control of the United States Senate will be due to a special election in Georgia in early January. Republicans have traditionally done well in the Georgia special elections, and David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler are incumbents.
That is not to say that there are no positive signs for the Democrats either. Of course, Joe Biden only carried the state a few weeks ago. And in their corner, the Democrats have Stacey Abrams, who worked tirelessly to cast the vote.
Abrams wouldn’t work so tirelessly if it wasn’t for their governor’s race in 2018. She lost a close race to Brian Kemp after Kemp used his powers as Secretary of State to remove black voters from the list.
Abrams spoke to CNN on Monday morning about the upcoming special elections. She noted, “If we give eligible citizens access to the right to vote, more people will participate and Republicans will not know how to win without suppressing voters as one of their tools.”

The Georgia activist was also asked about the recently passed bill that would give many Americans a $ 600 stimulus payment. She continued, “This is not only a belated investment, but also a very bad investment. $ 600 is not going to help most families survive, and we need two U.S. Senators willing to go to Washington and work with the new president to bring real aid to the state of Georgia. “
