Sen. Johnson and Republicans Defeat Democrats’ S. 1 Power Grab
[Madison, WI] – Today, Republicans in the U.S. Senate defeated S. 1, which would have granted D.C. politicians even more control over states’ elections. S. 1 sought to federalize elections, weaponize the Federal Election Commission as a partisan tool of the White House and make our elections less secure.
“Wisconsinites want laws that enhance election integrity and bolster their confidence in the electoral process, not laws that dismantle commonsense provisions like photo ID, which most Americans support,” said Republican Party of Wisconsin Chairman Andrew Hitt. “Thankfully, Republicans like Sen. Johnson are fighting back against Democrats’ attempts at a federal takeover of our elections.”
