Derrick Johnson:

Well, for Democrats, I commend them to try to hold fast to traditions and protocol.

But, for Republicans, they’re very clear on what they are seizing. They’re seizing power. They don’t care about democracy. Democracy is under attack. And for Democrats, we must stand up to be very clear that this type of attack will be met with equal force, so that our Constitution can be real.

For the NAACP, this isn’t a partisan issue. We have been in the exact same place from the ’60s to current — in fact, we have been in exact same place for 112 years. During the ’60s, we had to fight Democrats. Today, we’re fighting Republicans.

At the end of the day, it’s not about partisanship. It’s about our Constitution. It’s about our rights to vote.
