We had an election and the majority of the voters did not vote for Trump. That didn't work out so well. Now that they majority of voters still don't support Trump, we have to make our will become a reality regardless.

4 months away from an election, there should be no consideration of a Supreme Court nominee until the American people have a say. Leader McConnell set that standard when he denied Judge Garland a hearing for nearly a year, and the Senate should follow the McConnell Standard now.

We’re sick and tired of the chaos. Of the cruelty. Of the cages. Of the concrete. We’re sick and tired of the policies of this White House. Of Zero Tolerance. Of the xenophobia. Of the hate. We‘re sick and tired of Trump. We’re demanding change.

Five years ago, the Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights Act in Shelby County v. Holder. Today, the Court struck another blow by upholding racially discriminatory districts in Texas. We must protect our democracy. We must fight to expand voting rights.

From 1965 to 2013, the Voting Rights Act helped correct brazen abuses of power and attempts to disenfranchise Americans. Today, we still need it. RIGHT NOW, use to urge Congress to bring the VRA back to its full and necessary strength.

Today’s Supreme Court ruling in Texas’ intentional racial redistricting case is a huge wakeup call. The Courts aren’t enforcing Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act, which protects minorities’ right to vote.

It’s been five years since the Supreme Court devastated the Voting Rights Act by stripping out core provisions. Every day Congress fails to protect voting rights is a day that it has failed Americans. We have to take responsibility for preserving our democracy.

If Republicans thought they could win on issues, they wouldn’t steal your right to vote. On this issue alone - we must all vote for Democrats.
