White House forced to concede defeat on plan to federalize elections

President Joe Biden will turn to states for new voting rights legislation after Democrats failed to pass the For the People Act in the Senate, the White House admitted on Wednesday. 

White House press secretary Jen Psaki said on Wednesday, “What you should expect to hear from him is that there are many ways to work across the country with activists, with states, with legislators, using every lever at our disposal to expand access, improve access to voting for people.”

Psaki added, “Everybody who supports democracy, who supports equality, who supports justice, should be supporting improvements to our voting rights.”

The comments came one day after the Senate failed to pass H.R. 1 in a 50-50 vote. The bill required a 60-voter supermajority to pass.

“Unfortunately, a Democratic stand to protect our democracy met a solid Republican wall of opposition,” Biden wrote.

“It was the suppression of a bill to end voter suppression — another attack on voting rights that is sadly not unprecedented,” he added.

Biden noted, “This fight is far from over. I’ve been engaged in this work my whole career, and we are going to be ramping up our efforts to overcome again — for the people, for our very democracy.”

Biden plans to encourage states to pass voting rights laws similar to H.R. 1. However, many states have already introduced more conservative legislation, meaning Biden’s plans will be limited to states already leaning heavily Democrat.
