Stacey Abrams: These are the places to watch for voter suppression in 2020

Stacey Abrams remains mum on whether she plans to run for president. In the meantime, she’s continuing her fight against the one thing that kept her out of the Georgia governor’s mansion in 2018: voter suppression.

Abrams is sounding an alarm about voter suppression laws in place in Republican-led states like Florida, Arizona, Georgia, and Texas that could affect the 2020 election. But she also is issuing a warning about states with newly-elected Democratic governors, like Michigan and Wisconsin, where Republican lawmakers will block any effort to strip existing unjust voter laws already on the books.

“You’ve got a raft of states, 25 states, that since 2010 have passed laws to increase voter suppression and decrease access to the ballot,” Abrams said in an address at the Council on Foreign Relations.

A former minority leader in Georgia’s House of Representatives who narrowly lost the governor’s race, Abrams is in the vanguard of a movement to expand the number of voters of color, who often support Democrats.

4. Eric Holder has been doing a lot on this as well

if I'm not mistaken, as well as gerrymandering.
