They have never been more divided.
In a shocking turn of events, Democrat Senator Mark Kelly, who was one of the last few remaining moderate Dems with Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema to vote against nuking the filibuster, has just flipped and is now siding with the progressives.
This could result in Democrats changing America’s voting laws forever!
According to Fox, “My year in the Senate has shown me how dysfunctional this place can be, and how that prevents progress on issues that matter to Arizonans. We’re seeing that now, as voting rights legislation remains blocked while partisan politicians work to undermine Arizona’s successful vote-by-mail system and create more barriers to vote.”
Kelly then said, “If campaign finance and voting rights reforms are blocked again this week, I will support the proposed changes to pass them with a majority vote.”
Kelly surprising stood firm against changing the Senate filibuster but, after months of pressure from the progressive Democrats such as Ocasio-Cortez and Chuck Schumer, is willing to change his mind.
Kelly’s decision has now completely alienated his fellow Senators Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., and Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., who are now the only two senators stopping their party from nuking the filibuster.
