Restrictions on voting have been virtually all imposed by Republicans, reflecting rising partisanship and the weakening of the Voting Rights Act by the Supreme Court in 2013.

Damon Johnson, a sophomore at Prairie View A&M University in Texas, voted on campus on Tuesday.

that’s not rising partisanship - it’s rising fear that more Americans want to vote against them than for them

Business Lobbyists, GOP Operatives Plot to Take Down Wave of Democratics in Midterms

".....Many of those companies are from industries that have long contributed to GOP causes, including resource extraction, financial services, tobacco, retail, for-profit education firms, and private health care interests. But the list also includes a number of Silicon Valley firms that have stepped up political giving, including Uber and Google.

Several of the largest donors to the Republican State Leadership Committee are themselves dark money groups. The Judicial Crisis Network, a 501(c) nonprofit that does not disclose its donors, has given $1.5 million to the group. The ABC Free Enterprise Fund, a dark money affiliate of a lobbying group that represents non-union construction companies, gave $100,000....

Democrats want more government. We want less.

They want to open our borders. We want to secure them.

They want to raise your taxes. We want to cut them.

They want government-run health care. We want patient-run health care.

The stakes couldn't be higher. Vote!

Republicans want to tell a bunch of lies to voters. Because they can’t win with the truth.

But the truth will out.

So let me get this straight:

Republicans are demanding they stop counting the votes in Florida because Rick Scott is currently ahead.

But they want to keep counting the votes in Arizona because McSally is currently behind.

Do I have that right?

Lies, hatred and bigotry know no logic.

Sen. Chuck Schumer: "President Trump and Governor Scott seem dead set against counting every vote. Why? Because they're worried that if every vote is counted, Bill Nelson will be reelected." http://abcn.ws/2hFejwL

 Not wanting to count all the votes must be the latest step in Republican voter suppression.

Why Are Republicans Using a Bill About Wolves to Kill a Vote on Yemen?

"Republican leaders in the House of Representatives are undercutting a bipartisan effort to end U.S. involvement in Yemen by sneaking a measure that would kill an anti-war resolution into a vote about wolves.

On Tuesday night, the Republican-led House Rules Committee voted to advance the “Manage Our Wolves Act,” which would remove gray wolves from the endangered species list. The Rules Committee waived all points of order against the bill and voted to advance it to the floor.

The catch: Republicans inserted language that would block a floor vote on whether to direct President Donald Trump to end U.S. involvement in the Saudi- and UAE-led intervention in Yemen. The intervention has been highly destructive, flattening homes, roads, markets, hospitals, and schools, and leading to the world’s largest humanitarian crisis.....

GOP seeks last-ditch laws in states where its power slipped

.....In Michigan, where the GOP has held the levers of power for nearly eight years, Republican legislators want to water down a minimum wage law they approved before the election so that it would not go to voters and would now be easier to amend.

Republicans in neighboring Wisconsin are discussing ways to dilute Democrat Tony Evers’ power before he takes over for GOP Gov. Scott Walker. And in North Carolina, Republicans may try to hash out the requirements of a new voter ID constitutional amendment before they lose their legislative supermajorities and their ability to unilaterally override vetoes by Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper.....

“This has to be priority now … How in the world my colleagues don’t see this as a priority now, I don’t understand,” GOP Sen. Jeff Flake says about a bill he co-sponsored to protect the Mueller probe in the wake of Matt Whitaker taking over the role of acting attorney general.
