Democratic presidential candidate Rep. Seth Moulton (MA) said during a CNN town hall event on Sunday night that Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams lost her gubernatorial race in 2018 because America was racist.
“If this country wasn’t racist, Stacey Abrams would be governor,” Moulton said in Atlanta. “People of color are being systemically denied the most basic right in a democracy, which is the right to vote.”
Abrams has largely been in denial about her loss to Republican Brian Kemp, who beat her by over 54,000 votes back in November.
Abrams has refused to concede the election because she claims without evidence that the election was stolen from her through voter suppression, despite the fact that Georgia had record voter turnout for the election.
According to Fox News Abrams still claims that she won the state’s 2018 gubernatorial race on Friday, despite losing to now-Gov. Brian Kemp.
“I’m here to tell you a secret that makes Breitbart and [Fox News host] Tucker Carlson go crazy: We won,” Abrams said, according to The Houston Chronicle. “I am not delusional. I know I am not the governor of Georgia — possibly yet.”
She made the remarks an a Houston fundraiser hosted by Annie’s List, a group that seeks to elect progressive women into office. Abrams justified her refusal to accept the result of the election by calling Kemp “an architect of voter suppression that spent the last eight years knitting together a system of voter suppression that is unparalleled in America.”
According to Texas Tribune reporter Patrick Svitek, she said in her remarks that “we don’t have to concede elections anymore, because when we concede, we are condoning systems that are used to oppress us.”
Why is it when a Democrat loses it’s everyone’s fault but theirs? How very Clinton of Abrams and her party to think that race has anything to do with politics and values.
