SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The president of the NAACP says laws that aim to undermine the coalition that helped elect President Barack Obama are the No. 1 issue facing Americans.
Benjamin Jealous told a Salt Lake City audience on Friday that the nation’s power structure has seen the way blacks, Hispanics and students of all races are voting and it realizes time is running out on its “strategy for power.”
He says attempts to place restrictions on voter registration in Florida are aimed at those outside the power structure, but populists can defeat “organized money” every time if people are organized.
