RNC Chair McDaniel: Dems' All-Star Game antics – MLB fell for Georgia election spin but rest of US catching on

5 mins read


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. 

RNC TO AIR AD DURING MLB ALL-STAR GAME SAYING DEMS ‘STOLE’ IT FROM ATLANTA

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. 

‘WOKE’ MLB MOVING ALL-STAR GAME FROM 51% BLACK ATLANTA TO 76% WHITE DENVER, CRITICS NOTE

Recent polling commissioned by the Republican National Committee (RNC) shows that a remarkable 87% of voters support banning ballot trafficking, a position upheld by the recent United States Supreme Court landmark decision Brnovich vs. Democratic National Committee. 

The same poll found that 78% of American voters support voter ID requirements as a common-sense, uncontroversial method of promoting voting security. Democrats must have seen the numbers: prominent Georgia figures like Stacey Abrams and Raphael Warnock are now dishonestly claiming never to have opposed voter ID requirements. Georgians see right through their opportunistic backtracking. 

Democrats have also seized on ballot drop-boxes as an example of Republicans restricting access to voting. An objective examination of Georgia’s history of drop-box usage renders Democrat arguments – once again – completely false. Drop-boxes appeared in Georgia as part of an emergency provision adopted by the state board of elections to contend with voting challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

GEORGIA SECRETARY OF STATE DEFENDS ELECTION REFORM LAWS

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.

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.
