When it became clear that Democratic and liberal media darlings Stacey Abrams and Andrew Gillum were likely to lose their respective races in Georgia and Florida, senior White House correspondent Cecilia Vega and Nightline co-host Byron Pitts sought to blame racism for people not electing them.

Vega complained at 10:37 p.m. Eastern that, in Florida, “what we're not talking about is the overtones of race and racism that have played out in the Governor's race there with the comments like monkey this up by DeSantis and Gillum saying, ‘I'm not calling him a racist, the racists believe he's a racist.’”
