The House of Representatives voted Tuesday to block a resolution from Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) to censure Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters.
Last weekend, Waters called for protesters to “get more confrontational” if former officer Derek Chauvin was acquitted for the killing of George Floyd. Democrats had a narrow path to defeat the censure but the vote ended 216-210 along party lines
After the vote, Waters thanked her fellow Democrats for their support.
