Senate Minority Chief Mitch McConnell was requested about Sen. Joe Manchin’s voting rights compromise, and he mentioned no Republican would help it.
Here’s what McConnell advised reporters:
McConnell says he’s against Manchin’s compromise on elections
“All Republicans will oppose that as effectively”

Sen. Manchin’s compromise is a very good proposal. It bought the help of Stacey Abrams. Manchin retains key parts of the For The Folks Act in place however provides a voter ID requirement that’s versatile. It’s a proposal that each Democrat ought to get behind, and it ought to have drawn Republican help if Republicans weren’t intent on rigging elections by stopping folks from voting.
The bipartisanship that Manchin and others need to return to the Senate doesn’t exist. There isn’t any voting rights invoice that may get Republican help. Mitch McConnell mentioned it himself, so it’s time for Sen. Manchin and the opposite Democratic holdouts to get up and alter the filibuster to go a voting rights invoice.
