President Joe Biden delivered an emotional and combative speech in defense of broadening the right to vote, declaring it a “national imperative” for Congress to pass legislation that would counter new Republican laws in several states that curb ballot access.

“To me this is simple. This is election subversion,” Biden said Tuesday in Philadelphia, referring to the GOP state laws.
