PV International Desk : President Joe Biden took a major political gamble Tuesday in calling for a break in the Senate’s supermajority rule so that Democrats can override Republican opposition to voting rights reforms that he called crucial to saving US democracy.

Speaking in Atlanta, Georgia, the cradle of the civil rights movement, Biden — who called last year’s Capitol riot by Donald Trump supporters an “attempted coup” — declared “this is the moment to decide to defend our elections, to defend our democracy.”
