Hillary Clinton Says She Lost 2016 After Republicans ‘Gutted Voting Rights Act’

Former Secretary of State and 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton claimed that a Supreme Court decision might have cost her the win over Donald Trump.
Participating in an annual commemoration of the 1965 Selma to Montgomery marches organized by a voting rights activist group which included Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Rep. John Lewis, AOI reported, Clinton noted that she was “the first person who ran for president without the protection of the Voting Rights Act” and it made a “really big difference.” She also discussed the history of the Voting Rights Act, which was passed in 1965 and was reauthorized by Congress in 2006 while she was in the Senate.

The former secretary of state, who won the popular vote in 2016 but lost the electoral college, specifically pointed to Wisconsin, one of three states where President Donald Trump won by a tight margin.
