WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer on Tuesday warned Republicans that if they block an upcoming election reform bill he will maneuver to pass it with Democratic support only.

Schumer didn’t say how or if he would alter the Senate filibuster rules to defeat Republicans opposition. He said that he would take steps to protect democracy, fight voter suppression and partisan gerrymandering, and to combat election subversion at the state and local levels.
