With action on the bill in the Senate imminent, Democracy Nerd is joined by Maryland's Congressman John Sarbanes, one of the bill's co-authors, who explains the necessity for this bill to pass in this moment of time, his optimism that some form of voting rights protections will pass the Senate, and describes how Joe Manchin can cement his legacy as a voting rights hero.
