Restoring Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act

"I am most heartened by the message Rep. Joim Sensenbrenner [Wisconsin congressman] delivered to a Republican gathering in recent days talking about his commitment to restoring Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act. I'm heartened by the signals House Majority Leader Eric Cantor has sent that he might be willing to support the same thing. And I'm hopeful that Speaker John Boehner will look into his heart and more importantly look into the eyes of John Lewis and recognize [the tradition of both parties aligning on this issue]."
