Stacey Abrams Claims Biden Is a Popular Figure: 'Not by Number but by Intention’
'We know the conversations that were had around voting rights'
Democratic Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams claimed President Joe Biden was not popular by poll numbers but by “intention.”
During an interview on Friday on MSNBC’s “Deadline," Anchor Nicolle Wallace said:
“You’re close to president Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris."
"They won the state of Georgia."
"What are the piece that are most popular there, what sorts of things, where is his message most resonant, around infrastructure, or what issues are resonating the most with Georgians," Nicolle asked.
“For twenty years, Georgians have been beating our heads against the wall, demanding of our leadership, Republican leadership, to do something about broadband."
"40% of Georgians don’t have access to reliable broadband, or they can’t afford it," she said.
"Because of the infrastructure bill, because of President Biden but also because of Senators Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff and millions of dollars are pouring into the state of Georgia to make advances of broadband," she added.
"We need resources, and because we have two senators, especially Senator Raphael Warnock, who is up for reelection."

"We know we have a partner working with our president to bring resources to the state of Georgia," Abrams said.
"We know the conversations that were had around voting rights," she added.
"Even though it did not yield the legislative changes we wanted, it lifted up an issue that for too long has been silenced."
"We know that President Biden is a popular figure."
"Not by number but by intention, by what he does for Georgia, the monies being poured in are being used."
