GOP says Clinton dividing Americans over voting rights


HOUSTON (AP) -- Republicans are striking back at Hillary Rodham Clinton's suggestions that they have tried to disenfranchise voters.

Potential GOP candidate Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey says in New Hampshire that Clinton wants to have an opportunity to "commit greater acts of voter fraud" around the nation.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich says in an interview with Fox News that Clinton is "dividing America" and notes Ohio has 28 days of early voting while her home state of New York doesn't have any.

During a speech in Houston on Thursday, Clinton said a group of Republican governors pursuing the White House is "systematically and deliberately" trying to prevent millions of Americans from voting.

She says states should expand access to early voting and allow universal, automatic voter registration for young people.
