Helena, MT – Last week, Democrats in Congress made another desperate push for a federal takeover of our election system by passing H.R. 4, a bill designed to undermine election integrity and slant elections to help Democrats win elections.
“Senator Tester and other Senate Democrats’ first attempt at a federal election takeover with the For the People Act failed miserably. Now, Nancy Pelosi and radical Democrats in Congress are back again urging for another federal takeover of our election system by passing H.R. 4,” said Montana Republican Party Chairman Don “K” Kaltschmidt. “It is time for Senator Tester to side with Montanans – who favor election integrity – and reject H.R. 4 as it heads to the U.S. Senate, rather than his power hungry party bosses who are making it their mission to undermine Montana election laws.”
For additional background, H.R. 4 would:
- Give the liberal bureaucrats and the Biden Administration the power to overturn state election integrity reforms that make it easier to vote and harder to cheat.
- Weaponize the Biden Justice Department and give them control over state and local elections.
- Require the federal government to approve certain election changes
- Bring back outdated and unconstitutional laws that the Supreme Court struck down in 2013’s Shelby County v. Holder decision.
