Dem Sen. Blumenthal: Texas Dems 'Brave' and Filibuster Has Been Used 'for Partisan Ends'

On Wednesday's broadcast of MSNBC's "The Last Word," Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) praised the "brave and persevering Texas legislators" who have fled the state to prevent the passage of voting legislation, and argued that the filibuster needs to be altered or abolished because it "has been used and misused and overused by Mitch McConnell and the Republicans for partisan ends."
