“We did our part to stop this horrible voter suppression bill in Texas and now Texas Democrats and Democrats in the Senate are calling on President [Joe] Biden to use the filibuster in order to pass the John Lewis Voting Rights Act immediately and use our Democratic majority to stop these voter suppression bills across the country,” she said.

González urged President Biden to come out in support of nixing the filibuster immediately.
