Abrams Gives Democrat Response to SOTU
By Ian Sloan 2/6/2019
Stacey Abrams focused on voter suppression and government accountability in her speech broadcast live from Georgia.
Abrams said she is disappointed by the President’s approach to the nation’s problems and that he should tell the truth and respect his duties in the office.
“America wins by fighting for our shared values against all enemies, foreign and domestic,” Abrams said. “When we do so, never wavering, the state of our union will always be strong.”
Abrams is the first African-American woman to give the Democrat response to a State of the Union address.
