Sherrod Brown: If Stacey Abrams doesn't win in Georgia, Republicans stole it

Source: The Hill



BY OWEN DAUGHERTY - 11/14/18 01:01 PM EST



Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) blasted the GOP over the handling of Georgia's midterm elections, saying if Democrat Stacey Abrams does not win the race for governor, Republicans “stole it.”

“If Stacey Abrams doesn’t win in Georgia, they stole it,” Brown said. “It’s clear.”

Speaking at a National Action Network event in Washington, D.C., Wednesday morning, Brown, who has said he is considering a presidential run in 2020, said Republicans “can’t win elections because there is way more of us than there are of them.”

“They can’t win elections fairly,” Brown said. “They win elections by redistricting and reapportionment and voter suppression and all the ways they try to scare people, particularly people of color.”

2. He is putting the truth right out there. He pulls no punches.

I'm so glad he's thinking about running for president.

4. Chuck Schumer, are you listening?

Party leaders need to be out there, this is too important to let slide. We've slid too many times already.

17. No kidding.

Makes me wonder sometimes how many Democratic politicians are happy being the minority party.

We've known republicons steal elections since 2000 and before. Republicons have worked to continue, expand and calibrate their stealing. Democrats haven't often spoken of this problem until now, much less take action. If they don't follow through with Pelosi's statement, and actually put an end to republicon stealing and voter suppression, Democrats will soon be a minority party again.

I like what I've been hearing the last few days from Pelosi & Brown. Now it will be time for action.

6. This is the kind of open, straight-forward and

honest “messaging” that will inspire Democrats to vote. It may inspire more Rs to vote as well, but as Sen. Brown said, there are way more of us.

Kudos to Sherrod Brown for speaking the truth in the face of oppression. Finally, a Democrat calling it like it is rather than dancing around and making innuendos or being pedantic about the topic.

7. Looks like Sherrod

really may be aiming for a Presidential run. NAN is Sharpton's group, so this is definitely a touching base, literally with THE base.

9. I would have no problem with Brown in 2020.

He's a great mix of strong, straight talking, and appeals to liberals and progressives alike.

10. "liberals and progressives alike"

How would you define the difference?

14. Ask progressives

They don't self identify as liberal. So I use "progressive" to mean people to the left who call themselves such. Which are usually pretty far left. Especially since the national center was dragged to the right in the 90s and 00s.

If this was the 70s, Bill and Hillary Clinton would be Republicans.

15. I think Ohio could elect a Dem senator.

Depends on who it is and how well they run their campaign.

16. Yes, but his replacement would be appointed by the Republican Gov

Until the next election, I believe. Someone from Ohio can confirm/correct me.

12. It's fantastic that he's speaking out, clearly!

I wish he would have also said what he’s planning on doing about Republican cheating and voter suppression. Boycotts, marches, investigations, etc. Hell, I’d support it all simultaneously.

13. Sherrod Brown is taking no prisoners.

This is sorely needed and a breath of fresh air. Tell it like it is Senator Brown! Call the repugs out on their lying, cheating and fuckery.
