It couldn’t be any clearer what Republicans in states like GA and TX are doing. They are purposely undermining voting rights for Black and Latino Americans. Here’s how they’re doing it:
1. #GA Republicans are holding up the voter registration of 53,000, mostly Black people. The state’s Secretary of State Brian Kemp who oversees the voting roll is in a race for governor against Democrat @StaceyAbrams: nbcnews.com/politics/elect…
2. Florida has barred ex-felons who have completed their sentences from voting in the state denying 1.5 million people the right to vote. A referendum on the ballot in November would restore voting rights to these people: nytimes.com/2018/09/26/mag…

/3 Trump won Michigan, Wisconsin & Pennsylvania by some 80,000 votes, but says today that he's denying 101,000 civilian workers in those states a raise next year - and announcing it two months before a midterm election, and two years before he'll likely face voters again himself
