Location: Washington, DC

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) issued the following statement today after the Senate voted to renew the Violence Against Women Act, the 20-year-old federal law that has helped millions of women and children escape abuse:

Leahy for leading the effort to reauthorize this extremely important law."
