Sanders: ‘Lot of White Folks’ Who Aren’t ‘Necessarily Racist’ Weren’t Comfortable Voting for Gillum, Abrams
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) said there are “a lot of white folks” in Florida and Georgia who may have been “uncomfortable” voting for black gubernatorial candidates Andrew Gillum and Stacey Abrams.
“I think you know there are a lot of white folks out there who are not necessarily racist who felt uncomfortable for the first time in their lives about whether or not they wanted to vote for an African-American,” Sanders told The Daily Beast. “I think next time around by the way it will be a lot easier for them to do that.”
Gillum conceded defeat Tuesday night
