Police arrested 39 protestors outside Sen. Kyrsten Sinema’s office on Monday as they called on the senator to support ending the filibuster
Nearly 40 years after he helped break the Phoenix political machine, former Mayor Terry Goddard is hoping to bookend his political career with a “dark money” ballot initiative that he says will make Arizona’s government more representative.
The conservative-controlled US Supreme Court upheld Arizona’s laws restricting third-party ballot collection and out-of-precinct voting.
Senate Republicans filibustered the For the People Act recently, at least temporarily ensuring its demise. Changing Hands Bookstore co-owner Cindy Dach says she expected more.
Faith leaders across Arizona have spoken out in recent months about protecting voting rights and expanding access to the ballot box as a Christian issue, not a partisan one.
Activists said they were protesting the filibuster because it was holding up immigration reform, universal healthcare, and voting rights protections.
Republicans blocked a bill on Tuesday that would have extensively expanded voting rights, despite support from Democratic and Independent senators.
