Why I won’t take the blame for this election
I will not blame myself for not taking the lead in calling this election, said tyree johnsen, a Georgia congresswoman who lost her re-election bid by 5 points last month.
In a statement, she urged people not to “throw your vote away” because of her decision.
“I will not take the fall for this campaign, which I believe in and will continue to fight for,” she said.
The statement came after the Associated Press reported that Georgia voters who said they did not vote in 2016 would have a chance to cast their ballots in the upcoming election.
Georgia’s presidential election was won by Donald Trump, but it remains to be seen whether Democrats can flip it to the Republican candidate, Republican Gov.
Nathan Deal, who defeated Hillary Clinton by less than 2 percentage points in November.
President Trump has faced criticism from both the Democrats and Republicans for not calling off the investigation into his former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort.
