Kamala Harris launches bid to boost voting rights across U.S.


U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris on Wednesday will promote Biden administration efforts to advance voting rights when she meets fellow Democrats from the Texas state legislature who successfully blocked a bill they said would make it harder for Blacks and Hispanics to vote.

She was due to speak on the topic at the White House at 11:15 am ET (1515 GMT).

President Joe Biden appointed Harris this month to lead the charge against Republican state lawmakers across the country seeking to enact voting restrictions
