Democrat Sen. Raphael Warnock: MLB's Decision to Move the All Star Game 'Unfortunate'


The Democrat Sen. Raphael Warnock from Georgia calls Major League Baseball’s (MLB) decision to move the All-Star Game and 2021 draft “unfortunate.”

MLB issued a press release announcing the move Friday — they have yet to identify where. In their press release, they said, “Major League Baseball fundamentally supports voting rights for all Americans and opposes restrictions to the ballot box.”

Warnock — who defeated then-Senator Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) in one of two January U.S. Senate runoff races in Georgia, and is up for reelection in the 2022 midterm elections — called the move “unfortunate.”
