Democrats raise vi­o­lence against women act

The Washington Times Daily - - Politics -

Se­nate Democrats are dar­ing Repub­li­cans to vote against a bill that would pro­tect women from vi­o­lence, the lat­est round of elec­tion-year bat­tles for fe­male vot­ers.

Democrats want to re­new the 1994 Vi­o­lence Against Women Act, which ex­pired last year, and add im­mi­grants, gays and Amer­i­can In­di­ans to the cov­ered groups. Repub­li­cans who sup­ported the re­newal in the past say they ob­ject to some of the ad­di­tions.
