How can I not be grateful for Stacey Abrams today? She has been battling voter suppression in Georgia. What makes Ms. Abrams so special is that she is winning. Enfranchised people of color came out in record numbers yesterday to elect 2 progressive senators.
Few things are more important to me than fair elections. Not only did Georgia voters overcome some of the worst voter suppression in the nation, the new Senate could pass HR1, the John Lewis Voting Rights Act and give fair representation to people in Washington DC and Puerto Rico.
