Senate Republican Leader Calls Democrats’ Sweeping Election Reform Bill a Federal ‘Takeover’

Read Time:48 Second

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said that Senate Bill 1 (S.1)—the For the People Act of 2021—is an attempt by Democrats to control the outcome of future elections by taking power away from state election officials.

  • “There’s no rational basis for a federal government takeover of all 50 states’ elections,” McConnell said in a social media statement Tuesday.
