A candidate for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination blames "mass voter suppression" for Stacey Abrams not being the governor of Georgia. But not everyone is buying that argument.
Senator Cory Booker (D-New Jersey) made his claim about Abrams via Twitter:
"Protecting the right to vote is one of the most important challenges of our time," Booker added. "We need a modern-day Voting Rights Act."
"Isn't it amazing how Democrats absolutely despise Donald Trump's conspiracy theories, but they're perfectly happy to embrace their own? And this is another one," said Larry Elder on "Fox & Friends." "This has been fact-checked by PolitiFact, and they said there is no evidence whatsoever that voter suppression caused Stacey Abrams to lose this race."
Governor Brian Kemp (R-Georgia) defeated Abrams in 2018 by just under 55,000 votes.
"The percentage of eligible voters was actually higher than it normally is in mid-year elections, and the percentage of black voters who voted was higher than the percentage who voted in the 2016," Elder continued.
Senator and former presidential candidate Kamala Harris (D-California) has also claimed voter suppression kept Stacey Abams from being elected governor.
