Gov. Abbott declines invite to throw out first pitch at Rangers’ opening game

In a Monday statement, Texas Governor Greg Abbott said he will not be throwing out the first pitch at the opening game of the Texas Rangers’ season.

“I was looking forward to it – until Major League Baseball adopted what has turned out to be a false narrative about the election law reforms in Georgie, and, based on that false narrative, moved the MLB All-Star Game from Atlanta,” Abbott said.

“It is shameful that America’s pastime is not only being influenced by partisan political politics, but also perpetuating false political narratives,” he added.

Last week, MLB made the decision to move its All Star Game out of the state of Georgia over a newly enacted election law that Democrats argue resembles Jim Crow Laws, arguing that it restricts voting access to Black voters.

“Over the last week, we have engaged in thoughtful conversations with Clubs, former and current players, the Players Association, and The Players Alliance, among others, to listen to their views. I have decided that the best way to demonstrate our values as a sport is by relocating this year’s All-Star Game and MLB Draft,” Commissioner Rob Manfred said in a statement.

Many other companies such as Coca-cola and Delta Airlines have come out publicly against the new law, including former President Donald Trump, who is calling on Americans to boycott the companies.

On the other side of the aisle, some Democrats like Stacey Abrams have urged Americans not to boycott the companies that don’t condemn on the law.

Sara Carter joined Sean Hannity to discuss the classified documents being found in multiple places of both work and residence of Joe Biden from his time in the Obama administration. Carter states “One of the big questions from the House Judiciary Committee is how did President Joe Biden’s legal team stumble upon the classified documents that were found at Biden’s former office at the Penn Biden Center.”

“Why hasn’t the FBI been vocal and transparent about the fact that they searched that office and found the classified documents on November 2nd” Carter questions. Additionally, they have not yet “disclosed to the House Committees whether or not they had searched the house in Delaware or Rehoboth Beach to the full extent,” says Carter who noted the committees wanted the information by January 27th.

Carter spoke to sources who told her they will be serving subpoenas to “personnel from the Department of Justice because Attorney General Merrick Garland has refused to answer specific questions they sent to him on January 13th.”
