WATCH: DNC Chair Harrison Speaks Out Against Republican Assault On Voting Rights On MSNBC
March 29, 2021
In interviews last night on MSNBC’s American Voices with Alicia Menendez and this morning on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, DNC Chair Jaime Harrison spoke out against the Republican Party’s assault on voting rights and highlighted how the Democratic Party is going to do everything in its power to fight back.
Chair Harrison: “We’re going to do everything we possibly can within our power to fight back against these laws. … What Georgia has done in this bill is in essence said to a group of folks in Georgia that you don’t matter and you don’t count.”
Chair Harrison: “We are going to do every single thing in our power to fight back against these laws. … Republicans [are] trying to usher in Jim Crow 2.0 with these laws to restrict the right to vote, and particularly for those folks [who are] people of color. … What you’re going to see from this DNC is every breath in my body, every drop of blood that flows through my veins, I am going to do what we need to do to fight back against these efforts. From the courts to Congress, we’re going to do everything possible to make sure every person in this country gets the opportunity to have their voices heard.”
