On Tuesday, GOP senators shot down an attempt by Democrats to pass their 'For the People Act' election bill

On Wednesday, Republican lawmakers blocked the Democrats' radical election reform bill from passing the Senate.

On Tuesday, GOP senators shot down an attempt by Democrats to pass their “For the People Act” election bill, which has been widely criticized as partisan.

“All 50 Democrats voted for the procedural measure, but it drew no GOP support, leaving it short of the 60 votes needed to overcome a Republican filibuster,” The Wall Street Journal reported.

“Democratic centrists, most prominently Mr. Manchin and Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, have rejected ending the filibuster, though some have suggested ways to weaken it.”
