Alfredo Ortiz, President and CEO of Job Creators Network, one of America’s largest small business advocacy organizations, slammed Joe Biden who he says helped wage a war on Atlanta small businesses that are “suffering from the $100 million blow of losing the MLB All-Star Game due to misinformation about state voting rights” the president spread.
“While President Biden takes a 100th day in office victory lap by attending a drive-in car rally this evening, metro Atlanta small businesses are suffering from the $100 million blow of losing the MLB All-Star Game due to misinformation about state voting rights spread by the president himself,” Ortiz said in a statement.
Major League Baseball moved its All-Star Game out of Atlanta and to Denver, Colorado, a majority-white city in a state where some voting rules make it harder for people to vote compared to Georgia.
The All-Star game was set to generate more than $100 million for metro Atlanta businesses.
If Biden truly wanted to do right by local small businesses, he’d demand that the MLB bring back the game to Atlanta,” Ortiz said.
