DNC on Stacey Abrams Giving State of the Union Response

DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement after Democratic leaders announced that Stacey Abrams will deliver the Democratic response to President Trump’s State of the Union address:


“Day after day, President Trump has spread hate, spouted lies, and misled the American people. And there’s no doubt that he’ll do the same next Tuesday. That’s why Stacey Abrams is the perfect choice to give the Democratic response. Stacey didn’t just inspire the people of Georgia last year, she electrified voters across the country with a powerful vision and a positive message of unity, inclusion, and opportunity. She is a rising Democratic star who embodies our party’s values and our fight to build a brighter future for all. And when she responds to Trump, there will be no question in voters’ minds about what it means to be a Democrat and which party is truly fighting for the American people.”
