Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on Tuesday once again criticized corporate America for wading into hot-button political issues.
McConnell stated that corporations should still be free to make political contributions of their choosing, but large companies such as The Coca-Cola Company, Major League Baseball, and Delta Air Lines should avoid injecting themselves into matters like Georgia’s recently-enacted voter integrity law.
“It’s quite stupid to jump in the middle of a highly controversial issue,” McConnell said in his remarks in Kentucky.
“Republicans drink Coca-Cola too, and we fly and we like baseball,” the top Senate Republican added. “It’s irritating one hell of a lot of Republican fans.”
Major League Baseball has moved its 2021 All-Star Game from Truist Park in Atlanta to Coors Field in Denver due to the voter law — a move which will cost Cobb County an estimated $100 million in tourism revenue.
