Hice, R-Ga., made the comments in an interview with Fox News at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).
“I don’t know that they did anything to keep the game in Georgia. I mean they were all screaming voter suppression, take the All-Star Game elsewhere,” Hice said. “And that’s what happened and as a result it’s going to cost about $ 100 million to the businesses in Georgia.”
“I don’t think that goes over well with Georgians,” Hice added. He continued to defend the law, which is largely supported by Republicans of all stripes but decried by Democrats as an effort to disenfranchise largely minority voters.
