Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush just announced that he is opposed to renewing the Voting Rights Act (VRA) -- saying “I don't support reauthorizing it as is.”
But because of a 2013 Supreme Court decision that gutted one of the law’s crucial protections against discrimination at the polls, restoring the VRA “as is” isn’t even an option.
Instead, Jeb Bush -- and every presidential candidate -- should support the Voting Rights Advancement Act to modernize the VRA and protect every American's right to be heard.
