Despite Two Black Men Running for Senate, Georgia Runoff Elections Designed to ‘Keep Black Candidates Out of Office,’ Claims MSNBC

A segment on MSNBC’s “Velshi” discussed the alleged “deeply racist origins” of Georgia’s runoff elections, which were created to “keep Black candidates out of office.” MSNBC News correspondent Priscilla Thompson presented the report during Saturday’s episode of the show, speaking to historians claiming that enshrining runoff elections into Georgia law was a way for White candidates to consolidate their voter bases and more easily defeat Black candidates in major state elections.

Republicans better start embracing early voting if they stand a chance.
