The country’s top elected Democrat came to Ferguson Monday to push the party’s efforts to expand voting rights across the country. U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Rep. Lacy Clay, D-St. Louis, are among hundreds of co-sponsors of two bills: one that sets new requirements for when states must get federal approval to change their voting or election laws, and another that reduces the amount of money in campaigns, including eliminating so-called dark money from unidentified donors.
