More on Republican Commemoration of VRA 50th Anniversary

Sen. McConnell tells the NYT that no VRA fix is necessary:

On Thursday, Senator Mitch McConnell, Republican of Kentucky and the majority leader, said the law “has been a big success; it’s worked,” and suggested that a revision was not needed.

“It is also important to understand how different the South is now,” Mr. McConnell said, adding that there were more black elected officials in Mississippi than in any other state. “America’s come a long way, and the Voting Rights Act is intact, it was not struck down.”
