RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel: "Republicans Are Fighting To Make It Easier To Vote But Harder To Cheat"

RNC Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel talked about voting laws and said that Democrats are responsible for economic hurt in Georgia caused by boycotts in an interview on Monday. "These are the types of measures that are in the Georgia law which also expands voting hours, which also expands voting on Saturdays and Sundays so there's so much just dishonesty around these laws. And why are Democrats fighting so hard? Republicans are fighting to make it easier to vote but harder to cheat, which every American should want because we want to make sure that our elections are safe and secure so that we can trust the results," McDaniel said. <blockquote>JEFFCOAT: Very effective ad you guys have running now. Tell me why it was important for the RNC to run this out right now. CHAIRWOMAN MCDANIEL: Well, I think it's important that it's running actually during the All-Star game so that viewers will see this ad and recognize that Atlanta was really hurt through a lot of lies from politicians and corporations who misled the American people about these laws. And when I say politicians, I mean Joe Biden and Kamala Harris and Stacey Abrams and Raphael Warnock. And the impact is that Black businesses in Atlanta who would have had their bars full and parking lots full and so much happening in their city were lost that opportunity because of the divisive untruthful rhetoric by Democrat politicians and corporate America. JEFFCOAT: You know number states have debated these voting bills including Georgia there was a poll that was conducted with 800 registered voters. 31 percent identified as Democrats 29 percent Republicans and 36 percent a vast majority identified as Independent. Tell me what these recent poll numbers revealed. CHAIRWOMAN MCDANIEL: That Americans agree with everything that was in the Georgia law. We didn't pull the Georgia law but Americans agree with voter ID up to 80 percent over 88 percent. They think we should have security on drop boxes. They think we should have a timely timeline to get results. They don't think that activists should be going and collecting thousands of ballots and disrupting the chain of custody and turning them in. These are the types of measures that are in the Georgia law which also expands voting hours, which also expands voting on Saturdays and Sundays so there's so much just dishonesty around these laws. And why are Democrats fighting so hard? Republicans are fighting to make it easier to vote but harder to cheat, which every American should want because we want to make sure that our elections are safe and secure so that we can trust the results.</blockquote>
