Republicans in the Senate blocked the Freedom to Vote Act, a law proposed by Democrats to change voting rules. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said, “for multiple years running, Washington Democrats have offered a rotating merry-go-round of rationales to explain why they need to federalize voting laws.” With this law, Democrats seek to give the federal government power to frame some election rules that would apply to all the states.
