Even the RINOs are forced to admit the truth.
Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) admitted that the “For The People Act” is likely to fail.
Murkowski is the only Republican to endorse the proposal.
Dems need 60 votes to pass it.
The lone Republican working with Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia on a bill to restore a key part of the landmark Voting Rights Act acknowledged Tuesday the steep climb to get enough support to break a GOP-led filibuster.
“I think it’s going to be a challenge,” said GOP Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska. “You have Democrats who made clear that they’re going to line up pretty much, without the exception of Sen. Joe Manchin.”
“To get to 60, it’s pretty difficult to count,” the Alaska senator added.
Murkowski’s blunt assessment underscores how any legislation to overhaul voting laws is highly unlikely to pass the 50-50 Senate over the next two years given stiff resistance voiced by Manchin and a handful of other Democrats over changing the filibuster rules so legislation can advance along straight party lines.
