McConnell Slams Texas Dems' 'Phony' Boycott Stunt

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) had harsh words for the Texas Democrat lawmakers who fled their state in protest of a special legislative session that includes a vote on electoral reforms. The Democrat legislators boarded a private flight to Washington, D.C. to avoid doing the job they were elected to, as McConnell noted.


"This week, state legislators from Texas decided to grab some beer, hop on a private jet, and flee the state in what they are pretending is some great moral crusade."

Indeed, Texas Democrats acted as if they were engaging in a great sacrifice. They referred to themselves as “fugitives” in search of justice.


Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Vice President Kamala Harris met with the lawmakers during their publicity stunt. Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R-TX) set the record straight and reminded the Democrat legislators that the voting legislation in question will expand access to the ballot box.
