MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace on Wednesday night criticized Sen. Tim Scott’s (D-SC) rebuttal of President Joe Biden’s first congressional address.
Defending Georgia’s voting law, Scott said, “I’m an African American who has voted in the South all my life. I take voting rights personally. Republicans support making it easier to vote and harder to cheat. And so do voters. Big majorities of Americans support early voting, and big majorities support voter ID, including African Americans and Hispanics. Common sense makes common ground. But today, this conversation has collapsed.”
Scott continued, “The state of Georgia passed a law that expands early voting; preserves no-excuse mail-in voting; and, despite what the president claimed, did not reduce Election Day hours. If you actually read this law, it’s mainstream. It will be easier to vote early in Georgia than in Democrat-run New York. But the Left doesn’t want you to know that.
