John Lewis' Last Words to Jim Clyburn: ‘Keep Up the Fight'

Rep. Jim Clyburn of South Carolina is calling for the passage of the John Lewis Voting Rights Act, which would restore key parts of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 that were struck down in a Supreme Court decision. The bill passed the house in August but is still sitting in the Senate. In an interview with LX News host Ashley Holt, Clyburn got emotional recalling the last time he spoke to Lewis before his death in July 2020.
