A recent article in the New York Times discussing the upcoming Georgia Gubernatorial election mischaracterizes not only just how close the race is between far-right incumbent Gov. Brian Kemp and Stacey Abrams, but also a quote regarding the success of Abrams campaign in their outreach to Black voters in the state.
In discussing the election with reporters, People For political advisor Kevin Harris criticized national Democrats for their disorganized attempts to mobilize Black voters across the country. Unfortunately Kevin's comments were misrepresented as a reflection of the Abrams campaign, whose outreach to Black voters represents a model effort rather than one that is failing.
We're calling on the New York Times to issue a correction to the story and be more responsible when it comes to their political reporting – add your name now to join us in this effort!
