Georgia Democratic state Rep. Bee Nguyen is entering the race to become Georgia’s top election official.
Nguyen made the announcement Tuesday.
On Wednesday’s program, Nguyen joined “Closer Look” host Rose Scott for a conversation about why she is running.
Nguyen says she is running to protect Georgians’ voting rights in the wake of the new Republican-led voting laws for the state.
Current Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger also faces a primary challenge from Republican U.S. Rep. Jody Hice, who has been endorsed by former President Donald Trump.
