Georgia Gov. Kemp: Election Law "Expands Access," MLB "Caved" To Pressure From Stacey Abrams


Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp blasted Major League Baseball on Saturday over its decision to move this year's All-Star Game from Atlanta, Georgia over a new bill he signed last month that state Democrats say restricts voting rights.

"The Election Integrity Act expands access to the polls and ensures the integrity of the ballot box. Then, why did MLB move the All-Star game yesterday? Because Joe Biden and Stacey Abrams have spent days lying to Georgians and the American people," Kemp said. "Yesterday, MLB caved to fear and lies from liberal activists. They support the facts of our new election integrity law and they ignored the consequences of their decision on the community."

"[This] means partisan action and cancel culture are coming for your business... for your game or event in your home town. They're coming to cancel everything from sports to how you make a living."
