The county in Georgia, which was due to host the Major League Baseball All-Star Game this year, announced it will lose upward of $100 million in lost revenue over MLB's decision to relocate the game to a different state.

The league revealed last week that it is moving the game out of Georgia after the state passed new laws aimed at tightened the security of future elections.

MLB's decision came after Democrats, leftists, and their allies in the media pushed a number of false claims about the state’s new election law and signaled they would support the league pulling the game from Cobb County and boycotting the state.

Cobb Travel and Tourism's president and CEO, Holly Quinlan, said the “estimated lost economic impact” for the county is over $100 million.

“This event would have directly impacted our county and the state, as visitors spend their dollars on local accommodations, transportation, entertainment and recreation, food and retail throughout the county,” a report from Cobb County Travel and Tourism reveals.

“This would have been a big boost to Cobb businesses and help with recovery after the COVID-19 pandemic.”

The Atlanta Braves released a statement following the league’s announcement, saying that they did not support the decision and that they were “saddened that fans will not be able to see this event in our city.”

“Unfortunately, businesses, employees, and fans in Georgia are the victims of this decision,” the team added.

Democrat Joe Biden and far-left Democratic Party activist Stacy Abrams were widely blamed for the league’s decision to pull out of the state.

The pair promoted a number of false and misleading claims about the state’s new voting law.

An ESPN reporter said that sources inside the league indicated that the league’s decision was the result of “corporate sponsor pressure” and had nothing to do with players threatening to boycott.

Shortly before the boycott decision, Biden told ESPN host Sage Steele that he would "strongly support" the MLB if the league decided to move the July 13 game out of Georgia in response to the election reform measures.

Cobb County, where the game was due to be hosted, voted for Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential election.

“Today, @MLB caved to fear, political opportunism, and liberal lies,” Georgia Governor Brian Kemp said in a statement.

“Georgians – and all Americans – should fully understand what the MLB’s knee-jerk decision means: cancel culture and woke political activists are coming for every aspect of your life, sports included.

"If the left doesn’t agree with you, facts and the truth do not matter.”

“This attack on our state is the direct result of repeated lies from Joe Biden and Stacey Abrams about a bill that expands access to the ballot box and ensures the integrity of our elections.

“I will not back down,” Kemp continued.

"Georgians will not be bullied.

"We will continue to stand up for secure, accessible, fair elections.

"Earlier today, I spoke with the leadership of the Atlanta Braves who informed me they do not support the MLB’s decision.”

President Donald Trump repeatedly called for boycotts against MLB following their decision to pull out of the state.

"For years the Radical Left Democrats have played dirty by boycotting products when anything from that company is done or stated in any way that offends them,” Trump said in a statement.

"It is finally time for Republicans and Conservatives to fight back—we have more people than they do—by far!”

"Boycott Major League Baseball, Coca-Cola, Delta Airlines, JPMorgan Chase, ViacomCBS, Citigroup, Cisco, UPS, and Merck,” Trump added.

"Don’t go back to their products until they relent.

"We can play the game better than them.”
