Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is strongly opposed to efforts to make Election Day a national holiday.

On the Senate floor today, he derided a proposal to do that as a "power grab” by Democrats who want to win elections by having more people vote in them.

The internet raged in response to McConnell for trying to suppress voting.
