Cotton Statement on Georgia Lawsuit

Washington, D.C. — Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) released the following statement regarding the decision by the Department of Justice to sue the State of Georgia over its voting rights bill:

“President Biden packed the Department of Justice with left-wing ideologues like Merrick Garland, Vanita Gupta, and Kristen Clarke. Now they’re suing to block Georgia from making it easy to vote but hard to cheat. This baseless lawsuit is a reminder that bad things happen when Democrats use our institutions to push their radical agenda.”
