Vice President Kamala Harris on Monday voiced support for Texas Democrats’ plan to reportedly flee the state en masse to prevent the needed legislative quorum to block GOP bills, including new voting restrictions.
“I applaud their standing for the rights of all Americans and all Texans to express their voice through their vote unencumbered,” Harris said Monday while speaking at a voting rights meeting in Detroit, according to CBS News reporter Tim Perry.
“They are leaders who are marching in the path that so many others before did,” she added. “When they fought and many died for our right to vote.”
Harris also said the Texas lawmakers showed “extraordinary courage and commitment,” Perry reported.
