After today’s Atlanta Press Club debate for Secretary of State, The Democratic Party of Georgia released the following statement:
“In today’s debate, Bee Nguyen showed Georgians that we deserve more than the bare minimum from our elected officials. In exposing Brad Raffensperger’s support for an abortion ban with no exceptions and his extreme record of voter purges, enabling baseless voter challenges, and steadfast advocacy for Brian Kemp’s flagship voter suppression law SB 202, the debate made clear that only one candidate has our rights and best interests at heart – Bee Nguyen,” said Rebecca Galanti, spokesperson for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “As our next Secretary of State, Bee Nguyen will fight to protect our rights, push back on bogus claims of voter fraud, and expand access to the ballot for Georgians – not suppress it like Brad Raffensperger.”
Background on Raffensperger’s extreme record:
While Bee Nguyen has led the charge to protect voting rights, Brad Raffensperger has thrown his full weight behind Georgia Republicans’ flagship voter suppression law, SB 202.
While Bee Nguyen supports the right to choose and will fight to defend reproductive rights, Raffensperger was one of the most right-wing members of the state legislature, and supports a total ban on abortion with no exceptions.
In the debate, Brad Raffensperger continued his lack of transparency surrounding investigations into potential election interference in Coffee County. As Secretary of State, Bee Nguyen will work steadfastly to safeguard our free and fair elections by swiftly investigating any vulnerabilities in our system, holding bad actors accountable, and upholding free and fair elections.
