Sen. Amy Klobuchar, speaking with GOP Sen. Roy Blunt during a Senate Rules Committee hearing, has championed the Democrats' voting rights legislation.

WASHINGTON – Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar was left to contend with a harsh reality, no matter how she framed the situation.

The wide-ranging elections package she's championed in the Senate was firmly sidelined in a party-line vote Tuesday, blocked through a combination of fierce GOP opposition and the lasting power of the legislative filibuster. Remaining for Klobuchar and other Democrats were questions over how to move forward on a top priority, the future of which looks grim.

Klobuchar, however, appeared undeterred, and she and other leading Democrats say they'll continue to press the issue.
