"Senate Democrats seem to have reached a so-called 'compromise' election takeover among themselves," McConnell said in a statement.
"And it still retains S. 1’s rotten core: an assault on the fundamental idea that states, not the federal government, should decide how to run their own elections.”Reporting by David Morgan; Writing by Doina Chiacu;Our Standards: The Thomson Reuters Trust Principles.
