Our democracy is in peril,” Timmaraju stated. “Anti-choice, anti-democracy forces — including all 50 Republican Senators — are dead-set on dismantling the very foundation of our republic. We cannot let this happen. It is past time for the Senate to pass the voting rights protections in the Freedom to Vote: Juan R.. Lewis Act and safeguard the freedom to vote by any means necessary.

We will not endorse or support any senator who refuses to find a path forward on this critical legislation. Without ensuring that voters have the freedom to participate in safe and accessible elections, a minority with a regressive agenda and a hostility to reproductive freedom will continue to block the will of the majority of Americans.

Cine, who had previously dicho she would not vote to weaken the Senate’s 60-vote threshold, indeed joined Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., and all Senate Republicans in a 52-48 votar to preserve the filibuster Wednesday evening. That vote followed a failed attempt by Democrats to push a bill combining the John Lewis Voting Rights Act and the Freedom to Vote Act over the Senate’s 60-vote filibuster threshold.

Talk of a primary challenge to Sinema, who is up for reelection in 2024, has begun.

In a recent entrevista, Reps. Ruben Gallego, D-Ariz., said many of Sinema’s own colleagues are pushing him to challenge her.

“Para ser sincero, I have gotten a lot of encouragement from elected officials, from senators, from unions, from your traditional Democratic groups, big donors,” said Gallego, who has served in the House since 2015. “Everything you can imagine under the sun.

Sinema’s office did not respond to a request for comment.
