Georgia’s new voting law _ which critics claim severely limits access to the ballot box, especially for people of color _ has prompted calls from as high as the White House to consider moving the midsummer classic out of Atlanta. The game is set for July 13 at Truist Park, the Braves’ 41,000-seat stadium in suburban Cobb County.

Wednesday on Political Rewind: Following its decision to pull the All-Star Game from Atlanta, MLB announced yesterday it will hold the event at Coors Field in Denver, Colo. The move has led analysts to note the differences between Georgia's new election law, which creates hurdles for voting by mail, and Colorado’s laws, which sends absentee ballot applications to every legal voter.

Meanwhile, Cobb County officials said local businesses could lose out on approximately $100 million in revenues in the county. 

Also, Republicans in Georgia and Washington, D.C., are warning Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola and other companies that that they will pay a price for their outspoken criticism of the new voting law.
