A voting rights and election reform bill failed Wednesday to advance in the evenly-split Senate after 50 Republicans senators voted against it in a procedural vote.

The final vote tally on the Freedom to Vote Act was 51-49.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said the chamber will consider the alternative John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act sometime next week.

“By voting no to even begin debate, Republicans are giving implicit endorsement of the horrid new voter suppression and election subversion laws passed in states across the country,” the New York Democrat said.

  1. Superb blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Many thanks!
