There's a growing battle between Florida leaders and Department of Justice over that state's controversial effort to purge voters.
Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner is giving the DOJ its own deadline: Monday. He wants DOJ to explain why it claims it's illegal for voters to remove non-citizens from the voting rolls. In a statement, Detzner claims the state has the right to remove non-citizen voters to "ensure the right to vote is protected and not diluted by the votes of ineligible persons."
Attorney General Eric Holder argued his side in a hearing yesterday, saying Florida's efforts "counter to the National Voter Registration Act which says you can't do within 90 days of an election."
Detzner talks with Soledad this morning, and in an extensive conversation explains that it's critical for the state of Florida to have accurate voting.
