District of Columbia Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton (D) argued for D.C. statehood, saying Congress has a moral obligation and the constitutional authority to make Washington, D.C., the 51st state. Opponents of the measure argued that it was not the intention of the founding fathers for Washington, D.C., to be a state.
