MS Democrats: “Not so fast, Delbert”

But Mississippi’s Democratic Party Chairman Rickey Cole said, “Not so fast, Delbert. Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act remains in place. The federal courts remain in place. Those of us in this state who care about Voting Rights remain in place. And we shall not sit idly by.”

“Voting is a right, not a privilege. Voting rights were won by blood in Mississippi. We will never yield in our defense of the full and equal rights of every Mississippi citizen. And we have not yet begun to fight.”
