Democratic Party of Georgia Statement on MLB All-Star Game

July 13, 2021

Today, the Major League Baseball (MLB) All-Star Game will be played in Colorado instead of Georgia because of Republicans’ voter suppression law, SB 202. Since the MLB decided to move the All-Star Game at the urging of its own players, the GOP has waged a misinformation campaign – including spreading bald-faced lies – in a desperate attempt to deflect blame for their bad, divisive policy.

“The MLB All-Star Game would be played in Georgia today were it not for Brian Kemp and Georgia Republicans’ divisive, racist attack on voting rights – plain and simple. The GOP chose voter suppression and partisan politics over Georgia’s economy when it passed SB 202, driving investments like the All-Star Game out of our state in the process,” said Scott Hogan, Executive Director of the Democratic Party of Georgia. “Though we’ve come to expect the Georgia GOP to put their bad, unpopular policies ahead of the best interests of our state, it is no less pathetic that Kemp and Republicans are unwilling to accept responsibility for the consequences of their actions. Georgians deserve better.”
