Republican Pennsylvania Sen. Pat Toomey criticized Democrats for driving a “false narrative” on voting rights during a Sunday morning appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
H.R. 1, also called the “For The People Act,” was passed by the House on March 3 and is currently being considered by the Senate. It would make sweeping changes to U.S. election laws like banning state voter identification requirements, legalizing ballot harvesting, and automatically registering 16-year-olds to vote.
NBC anchor Chuck Todd played a clip of Democratic Georgia Sen. Raphael Warnock accusing Republicans of failing to stand for “voting rights” before asking Toomey for his thoughts.
