DC Voting Rights Survives Senate Committee

The DC Voting Rights Act has survived its trip through the Senate Committee by a 9-1 vote, with only Senator John Warner (R-VA) dissenting. Three more Republican Senators dissented from the party line and voted with the Democratic majority on the committee, possibly signifying a more broad support for the DC Vote in the rest of the Senate than initially expected. Will it be 60 votes?

Heck if I know, but I’d at least like to see a filibuster attempted instead of just dropped like so many hot rocks.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
