Chuck Schumer is trying to win elections, not safeguard them.

The media’s latest hot take is that Republicans—in particular the dastardly Senator Mitch McConnell—are blocking bipartisan legislation to protect the nation’s elections. Reality, as usual, is more complicated. Consider the Securing America’s Federal Elections Act, or the Safe Act, which the Democratic House passed in June.

Some of these ideas may have merit, but others have trade-offs. Running elections has been a state responsibility, and there are legitimate questions about further federalizing it.
