    (June 23) Senate Republicans blocked Democrats’ expansive overhaul of U.S. election laws from advancing to the chamber floor, dealing the Democratic majority a defeat on a chief 2020 campaign promise and underscoring their limited power in a chamber evenly split between the two political parties.

    The bill failed to advance on a 50-50 party-line vote, short of the 60 needed to overcome a filibuster. Democratic Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia made a last-minute decision to side with his party, providing Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer sought-after Democratic unity after weeks of negotiations with him.

    Also on Wednesday, senators are expected to consider judicial nominations, including Deborah Boardman to serve as a U.S. District Court judge for Maryland and Candace Jackson-Akiwumi to be U.S. Court of Appeals judge for the Seventh Circuit.
