The Republican National Committee is playing hardball in a new ad that blames Democrats’ lies about Georgia’s new election laws for causing Major League Baseball to move its All-Star Game to Denver from Atlanta.
MLB announced in April that it was moving the Midsummer Classic to Coors Field in Denver, from Atlanta’s Truist Park after Democrats and President Biden likened Georgia’s new election law to “Jim Crow” and urged a boycott — despite Colorado having stricter voting laws than the measures passed in Georgia.
“It was supposed to be Atlanta’s night. But we were robbed,” the Rev. Melvin Everson of Georgia says in the 30-second ad that was released Monday but will air at Tuesday night’s game.
“Democrats stole our All-Star Game to push their divisive political agenda. Politicians and corporations lied, while black communities got hurt the most,” he continues.
