Senate GOP Blocks Balloting Rights Invoice Once more

“The year-long Democratic push for federal balloting rights law neared a futile finish Wednesday night time, after Senate Republicans blocked an elections invoice for the 5th time in six months and Democrats seemed not able to unite their caucus at the back of a plan to rewrite the Senate’s regulations and move it anyway,” the Washington Put up reviews.

“The overall conflict, which has been brewing since Democrats received congressional majorities a 12 months in the past as Republican legislatures in 19 states launched into a marketing campaign to roll again election get admission to, started with a night vote to near debate on a sprawling balloting rights invoice.”

“That vote, on the Senate’s conventional 60-vote margin for law, failed on a 51-49 vote.”
