During his U.S. Senate victory speech Tuesday night, Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA) insisted that voter suppression exists in Georgia despite the state seeing a record-breaking midterm turnout.
“There are those who would look at the outcome of this race and say that there’s no voter suppression in Georgia,” Warnock began. “Let me be clear. Just because people endured long lines that wrapped around buildings, some blocks long, just because they endured the rain and the cold and all kinds of tricks in order to vote doesn’t mean that voter suppression does not exist. It simply means that you the people have decided that your voices will not be silenced.”
No, it actually means there is no voter suppression as Democrats always claim. All told, 3.5 million people voted in the runoff election, including 1.9 million early voters.
The election had the highest turnout of any midterm election in state history. More voters showed up to the polls on the runoff Election Day than they had on Election Day in 2020, runoff Election Day in 2021, and Election Day in 2022.
But sure, keep demonizing your political opponents.
