Garrison Calls On President And Democratic Nominee To “Represent The Totality” Of America

By Jacqueline Isaacs

Rainey Center president and co-founder, Bishop Garrison, appeared on MSNBC to discuss the 2020 election progress. Current data indicates that race between President Trump and the eventual Democratic nominee will come down to only four states—Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Florida.

Garrison explained that it’s not surprising that the electoral college has significantly narrowed the focus of presidential election campaigning. He reminded viewers that “the electoral map has always been about 11 or 12 states, your battleground states.”

He challenged both President Trump and the Democratic nominee to remember that while they may have a very narrow and focused campaign in 2020, they aren’t just representing those few states. Garrison said,

At the end of the day, we want our current president and we want our Democratic candidate to do all they can to speak to all people and to speak to all voters. Ultimately, they’re not going to represent just those four states. They’re going to represent the totality of the country.
