House passes sweeping election reform bill, opposed by Republicans

The House of Representatives passed a sweeping election reform bill on Wednesday night, in a 220-210 vote, strictly along party lines. It’s called The For the People Act, also known as H.R. 1.  

Rep. Matt Gaetz, a Florida Republican, blasted the bill on Twitter, saying that his Democratic colleagues “have jeopardized the legitimacy of every future U.S. election” through its passage.
