Stacey Abrams, the voting rights activist, had a strong message for voters in Virginia. She urged people to vote for Democrats and said that the nation would begin to resemble Texas or Georgia after years of continuous Republican rule.
Speaking for Terry McAuliffe, the Democratic candidate, at Charlottesville, Stacey Abrams portrayed in stark terms the contest between Terry McAuliffe and Glenn Youngkin, the GOP candidate. Her presence nationalized the race, already boasting of top Democratic supporters.
She urged people to find out the situation in Georgia, Virginia, and Texas and come out in numbers to vote on November 2. She reminded them of November 2016.
Stacey Abrams Finds Strong Opposition To Texas Abortion Law In Virginia
Her arguments went down strongly with the Charlottesville audience as they backed her. Stacey Abrams is a voting rights activist and a former candidate for a gubernatorial post. She continued in the same vein of nationalizing the Virginia election.
Stacey Abrams stressed that the move that they make will have an impact on the election in 2022 and 2024. It would determine the course this nation would take in the next ten years, she reminded the audience.
Terry McAuliffe also warned the audience of the consequences of a Republican candidate. He said that it could invite similar digressive abortion laws similar to the one enacted recently in Texas. The Texas abortion law bans abortions in cases over 6 weeks of pregnancy.
The past governor warned that the Republicans would enact similar oppressive measures in Virginia. Glenn Youngkin has rejected any chance of a repeat of the measures in place in Texas. He had been pressed on his view on abortion.
He has said that it would be appropriate to have a pain threshold bill, that makes it unlawful to perform an abortion if a fetus is 20 weeks old, or more, unlike 6 weeks under the Texas abortion law.
The week was a busy one for McAuliffe. Other than Stacey Abrams’ appearance at Charlottesville, Barack Obama, former President, was also present in Richmond along with the gubernatorial candidate.
