Voting-rights crusader Stacey Abrams urged senators on Tuesday to pass a Democratic bill that would set national standards for elections and overrule Republican-backed state voting integrity laws, even as she refused to concede she lost the 2018 Georgia governor’s race or accept responsibility for driving baseball’s All-Star game out of the state.
Democrats brought out Ms. Abrams as a star witness in their push to expand early voting and to beat back moves by several states, including Georgia, to require voter ID.
Ms. Abrams said states such as Georgia are seeing “a resurgence of Jim Crow-style voter suppression measures sweeping across state legislatures grounded in the ‘big lie’ about fraud and insecurity in the 2020 election.”

But the hearing in the Senate Judiciary Committee became a showdown between Senate Republicans and Ms. Abrams, who has carried the banner of voting rights for the Democratic Party. Republican lawmakers accused her of hypocrisy for appearing to take both sides in Major League Baseball’s boycott of the state, and for still not publicly conceding the governor’s race that she lost to Republican Brian Kemp three years ago.
