Minnesota Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison suggested that Republicans want to suppress voters in a Sunday tweet.
“Yup,” Ellison, who’s also the Democratic National Committee’s deputy chair, replied to another tweet saying “‘If voting didn’t matter, the GOP wouldn’t be working so hard to prevent people from doing it.'”
Yup. Thanks for sharing it. https://t.co/4n495YDtXB

This isn’t the first time Ellison has linked the GOP to voter suppression.
“More proof of Republicans using race to suppress POC votes. Read before you judge,” Ellison tweeted in 2016 with a link to an article that said Republicans who live in districts with “substantial” black populations are most likely to be supportive of voter ID laws.
