Supreme Court rejects Virginia GOP’s last-ditch attempt to block fair legislative elections
On Monday, the Supreme Court handed down their decision in Virginia House of Delegates v. Bethune-Hill, shutting down the Virginia GOP's last ditch effort to rig the upcoming state legislative election taking place this November.
In 5-4 decision, the justices held that the House of Delegates has no standing to appeal the decision made by the lower court. The vote broke along unusual lines, with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg writing for a majority with Justices Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan, Clarence Thomas, and Neil Gorsuch, and Justice Samuel Alito writing a dissent joined by Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Stephen Breyer and Brett Kavanaugh.

Appearing on the CBS show over the weekend, Cotton told host Margaret Brennan that the U.S. needs to unleash its military might on Iran because Donald Trump's administration has claimed they are behind attacks on two oil tankers in the Strait of Hormuz.
