Texas Democratic Rep. Colin Allred said on Tuesday that even if the Senate version takes a different path from the House bill, it must advance in light of efforts to restrict voting access nationwide.
"To me, HR 1 doesn't have to pass the way that it did in the House, but it can get through the Senate in some other form," Allred told CNN's Erin Burnett on "OutFront." "But it has to get there. We can't say that Senate rules are more important than our democracy."
