Washington, D.C. – Earlier this month, the MLB announced that it would move its All-Star Game and draft out of Atlanta, costing the region, including many minority-owned businesses that call the Atlanta area home, over $100 million. The MLB was pressured into doing so by liberal organizations who threatened to boycott the state for enacting common-sense voting security measures. While Georgia liberals like Senator Jon Ossoff and Stacey Abrams opposed the effort, Senator Warnock supported the boycott.
Last Friday, the NRSC launched a digital ad that will run in Georgia, highlighting the Senator’s All-Star blunder that hurt Georgians in need during a pandemic. You can watch the ad here.
Statement from NRSC Chairman Rick Scott: “Senator Warnock fell into line with liberal special interests with the ease of a seasoned D.C. insider who cares less about his constituents and more about the loudest and most liberal voices in his party. In the process, he sent over $100 million out of his state as it recovers from a pandemic, money that would have helped minority-owned businesses throughout the diverse city of Atlanta. Such an All-Star blunder won’t fade from memory any time soon.”
