Biden to Meet With Senate Democrats in Voting-Rights Push
President Joe Biden is trying to ramp up pressure on Senate Democrats to change to the chamber’s filibuster rules and pave the way for passage of voting-rights legislation with phone calls to lawmakers and a trip to the Capitol to meet with Senators on Thursday.
A White House statement said Biden is focusing on “the urgent need” to pass the voting-rights bills in the face of persistent attacks on the integrity of U.S. elections through false claims by former President Donald Trump that the 2020 presidential result was fraudulent.
In the meeting with Senate Democrats, the president will underscore that they need to change the chamber’s rules to accomplish that goal, the statement said.
