Sen. Ted Cruz grilled Stacey Abrams during a Senate hearing over claims that her run for Georgia governor was “stolen” from her through voter suppression.
“The percentage of black Georgians who are registered to vote in 2018 is 64.7%. That compares to 60.2% as the national average, the percentage of Georgians who voted in 2018, the election you claim was stolen from you, was 56.3%. That’s higher than the national average of 48%,” Cruz told Abrams on Tuesday.
“Let me ask you this, Miss Abrams. In 2018, do you know which demographic group in Georgia had the highest registration percentage and the highest turnout percentage?”
