Clyburn: Manchin and Sinema Decided that Voting Rights of Senate Minority Are More Important than of ‘Minorities in This Great Country’

‘These two Democrats have decided that it’s much more important to them to protect the voting rights of the minority on the Senate floor than to protect the voting rights of minorities in this great country’

EXCERPT:

CLYBURN: "Well, first of all, thank you very much for having me this morning. You know, South Carolinians live, by and large, by our state motto, 'As I breathe, I hope.' Yes, I do have hope. I know that these two Democrats have decided that it is much more important to them to protect the voting rights of the minority on the Senate floor than to protect the voting rights of minorities in this great country of ours, this great country, the minorities that made it possible for them to be in the position that they're currently in. So, I hope, but I don't think that we will change their mind. But we will see."
