Vice President Kamala Harris has indicated that some hope remains for Democrat success on voter rights. Harris said in an address today that laws enacted '...in Georgia, and across the nation...' could make it harder for 55 million Americans to vote.


  • In her speech Harris accused the GOP of attempting to interfere with election results and said that the Senate 'must pass this bill' in order to preserve the freedom to vote. Harris has said she will spend the day '...making calls and meeting with folks. We're not going to give up.'
  • Tomorrow Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) will present voter rights to the Senate for debate. When Schumer moves to end the debate, the GOP will filibuster the motion. Without a 60 vote supermajority required for cloture Schumer will then ask the Senate to consider changing the rules on the filibuster to pass the bill. Schumer will need all 50 members of his caucus to support bypassing the filibuster. Unless there is a dramatic conflict resolution overnight this won't happen. Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV), and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) have categorically stated that they will not bypass the filibuster. They believe it is a essential part of Senate procedure and sidestepping it 'one time' will set a dangerous precedent for partisan legislation.
  • This is the final throw of the dice for Democrats on the issue of voters rights. This bill is expected to fail and then Chuck Schumer will decide how to proceed with a redrafted, and stripped back version of Build Back Better.
