“We see all of the phony obstacles to registering. We see all of the all of the suppressive efforts at the point of registration and even the point of voting. We see the longer lines. We see how all of this is designed to discourage, to depress, to prevent people from voting -particularly communities of color,” said Clinton.
“Candidates both black and white lost their races because they have been deprived of the votes they otherwise would have gotten. Stacey Abrams should be governor leading that state right now,” she added.
