Texas GOP blames typo for proposed Sunday voting restrictions, despite prior defense

01:24

A Texas Republican blamed a typo for a controversial provision of the restrictive voting bill that would have limited voting on Sundays to the hours of 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. Critics said the change was a direct effort to suppress Black voters. While the bill was being debated, Republicans defended the restrictions, but have recanted after the bill failed to pass.
