DPG Statement on Vernon Jones at Republican National Convention

August 25, 2020

Tonight, ahead of Vernon Jones’ appearance at the Republican National Convention, Democratic Party of Georgia Chairwoman Nikema Williams released the following statement:

“Vernon Jones has a long history of betraying his constituents and our Democratic values — he does not represent Black Georgians, and he does not represent our party. Trump’s administration has done nothing but hurt Black Georgians, from siding with white nationalists to ripping away Georgians’ health care to making our serious issues of systemic racism and police brutality worse. DeKalb voters have rejected Trump and his cronies, and they’re rejecting Vernon Jones — which is why he had to withdraw from the ballot this November rather than face defeat like Donald Trump and the rest of his cronies.”
