Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) said if Stacey Abrams does not win the Georgia gubernatorial race then Republicans "stole" the race in a speech Wednesday to Al Sharpton's National Action Network.
"If Stacey Abrams doesn't win in Georgia, they stole it, it's clear. It's clear. I say that publicly," Brown said.
SEN. SHERROD BROWN (D-OH): Populists don't appeal to some by pushing others down. That's why I say in America we will never give up the hallowed ground of patriotism to the extremists... and the extremists in this White House. We also will never give in on voting rights... if Stacey Abrams doesn't win in Georgia, they stole it, it's clear. It's clear. I say that publicly.
They can't win elections but there are way more of us than of them. They can't win elections fairly; they win elections by redistricting and reapportionment and voter suppression. In all the ways that they try to scare people, particularly people of color how they make it hard for people on college campuses, especially community college where there are more low-income people and more people of color. We know those despicable laws are often aimed that way. We much make sure obviously that every vote is counted in Georgia and Florida and everywhere else.
