Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO) made it clear to reporters that Republicans wouldn’t take into account Manchin’s voting rights invoice substitute as a result of Stacey Abrams endorsed it.
Right here is the quote from Sen. Blunt:
This is Blunt’s quote
When “Stacey Abrams instantly endorsed Sen. Manchin’s proposal, it turned the Stacey Abrams substitute, not the Joe Manchin substitute.”
*-early tweet misspelled Stacey, apologies

Sen. Blunt was suggesting that when the Manchin substitute was proposed by a white man from West Virginia, Republicans may need thought-about supporting it, however as soon as the proposal was endorsed by a black girl from Georgia, it turned a stable no.
Mitch McConnell already stated that Republicans wouldn’t assist the proposal, however Blunt’s quote is an instance of Republicans admitting that their opposition has nothing to do with “election safety.” The GOP opposition relies on a want to maintain sure folks, who simply so occur to look quite a bit like Stacey Abrams, from with the ability to forged their ballots.
2020 confirmed Republicans that when giant numbers of People present as much as vote, they lose. Republicans are by no means going to assist any invoice that protects voting rights so long as Donald Trump continues to be working the celebration, however the GOP is saying the quiet half out loud.
Their opposition to voting rights is all about race, not election safety.
