Skip to comments.Cory Booker says Stacey Abrams lost in Georgia because GOP stopped people voting

Democratic presidential candidate Cory Booker said Monday former candidate for Georgia governor, Stacey Abrams, lost her 2018 bid for the state's executive mansion due to voter suppression by Republicans.
"If it wasn't for mass voter suppression, @StaceyAbrams would be the governor of Georgia right now," the New Jersey senator said. "Protecting the right to vote is one of the most important challenges of our time. We need a modern-day Voting Rights Act."
Abrams lost the election to then-Secretary of State Brian Kemp, a Republican who earned 50% of the vote.
It was a record turnout for a nonpresidential election in Georgia, up 70% from the last.
Just days before the election, the Abrams campaign alleged the Georgia Secretary of State office, led by Kemp, had delayed the registration of more than 50,000 voters. Abrams argued this disproportionately affected black voters and tipped the contest in Kemp's favor.
Since losing her bid for Georgia governor, Abrams has started a nonprofit political firm seeking to reduce voter suppression around the country.
Booker is the only remaining black candidate in a shrinking 2020 Democratic field.
Abrams has said she would be open to the possibility of being the eventual nominee's vice president.
Stacey Abrams was a nincompoop. If I were to wager a guess, I would say she did as well as she did through voter fraud and depending on the low information voter.
Booker, you are a damn liar.
I think it was because of the vote gap
If you don’t vote in 2 consecutive elections, Georgia Law requires the Sec of State office to make multiple attempts to contact you. If you do not respond, they take you out of the voter roles.
NO ONE who was legally eligible to vote in GA is denied the right to vote. It a shameless lie by political scum who should never be allowed to hold any political power at any level.
Has Cory fessed up to being queer yet?
Whenever they lose it’s always someone elses fault or something else not their own ineptness.
Why do they always call black folks stupid?
liberal fools don’t know when to stop flogging a dead horse.
He may be, but there are millions that believe him................
Say what you want about her, but her pancakes is hard to beat.
No repub stopped anyone from voting. They even let illegals and dead people vote without a whimper. The leftist losers are too much. Can’t they accept that they are despised by most American Citizens? What absolute losers. I suggest this poltroon booker take a long walk on a short pier.
Notice that no one is saying anything similar about the Florida 2018 Governor’s race and Andrew Gillum’s loss...................
Cracker say....care for some whine wit dat cheese?
Fat, ugly and stupid is no way to go through life.
“because GOP stopped people voting”
If we’re just going to make up things out of whole cloth, let’s make it interesting, at least. Aliens did it. Trump-loving little orange men.
“”GOP stopped people voting””
GOP stopped SOME people voting, Cory. SOME people
What Booker is doing there is called LYING. Thanks Red Badger.
