Republican Senators Block Team-Left Election Reform Bill


In a final tally of 51 to 49, Republican senators voted against a democrat voting rights and election reform bill on Wednesday.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said the chamber will consider the alternative to the Freedom to Vote Act – the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act – sometime next week.

“By voting no to even begin debate, republicans are giving implicit endorsement of the horrid new voter suppression and election subversion laws passed in states across the country,” Schumer said, per Just the News.
