Texas has passed a sweeping election integrity bill strengthening elections in the state.
According to The Daily Wire:
Republican Governor of Texas Greg Abbott promised to sign the bill, as well, seemingly solidifying the GOP victory.
Democrats in the state are continuing to press for the federal government to intervene in state elections in an effort to push back against the efforts of Republicans to secure elections.
Republicans, on the other hand, have pressed that the legislation is necessary to ensure that elections are secure and people trust the results.
“Senate Bill 1 will make it easier to vote and harder to cheat,” Texas House Republican Caucus Chairman Jim Murphy said in a statement last week, noting that the bill will “go a long way in ensuring the integrity of our elections.”
Democrats prefer the latter more than the former.
