July 13, 2021

In response to the latest wave of Republican voter suppression efforts, President Biden aggressively defended the right to vote in Philadelphia. The president doubled down on his support for new federal legislation to protect voting rights and called out the brazen attempts to perpetuate lies about our elections and weaken American democracy. Guy Cecil, Chairman of Priorities USA, issued the following statement: 

“As we face yet another wave of attacks on voting rights, President Biden has put his commitment to protecting access to the ballot box front and center. The American people voted for a president who will defend American democracy against any and all threats, including those coming from within our own country. I am grateful that President Biden is leading the charge to protect and uphold our constitutional rights.”
