Thurmond holds the record for the longest solo filibuster, but longer filibusters have been carried out by groups of tag-teaming senators. Thurmond's filibuster was primarily focused on a specific provision in the civil rights bill that focused on minor voting rights contempt cases.What is Senate Rule 22?
Senate Rule 22 stipulates that a supermajority of the Senate (60 votes) is needed to end debate on most pieces of legislation. The proverbial catch is that if senators want to change Senate rules, that would also require a supermajority of all present and voting members. That’s a fairly high bar to reach.
