Cuomo doesn’t seem so repentant anymore
It’s all happening
The lines will be really long now
De Blasio’s having a grand ol’ time these days
Sure beats Manchin not backing any voting rights reform bill
Sen. Joe Manchin is breaking with Democrats and throwing his weight behind a more measured voting rights bill in lieu of the sweeping Democratic voting reform bill that Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has labeled a top priority of the caucus.
The Democrat from West Virginia told ABC News exclusively that he intends to support the John Lewis Voting Rights Act, a more narrowly tailored piece of voting rights legislation that he said he believes could muster bipartisan support even as voting legislation is becoming a flash point between the two parties.
“I believe Democrats and Republicans feel very strongly about protecting the ballot boxes allowing people to protect the right to vote making it accessible making it fair and making it secure and the John Lewis Voting Rights Act, if we apply that to all 50 states and territories, it’s something that can be done – it should be done,” Manchin told ABC News’ Rachel Scott. “It could be done bipartisan to start getting confidence back in our system.”
Is that right?
