Georgia’s Republican governor vowed a fight after Major League Baseball’s move to take this year’s All-Star Game and the MLB Draft event from Atlanta to show its concern for recently passed legislation on election procedures.

Friday’s move also spurred a backlash from former President Donald Trump, who has issued two statements on the subject so far, calling for boycotts of companies in favor of the shift in venue.
