West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin Commits to Breaking with Democrats Over Key Progressive Issues

West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin told FOX News that he will not vote to pack the Supreme Court, end the filibuster, or defund the police. “50-50 [control] means that if one senator does not vote on the Democratic side, there is no tie and there is no bill,” Manchin said. “I commit to tonight and I commit to all of your viewers and everyone else that’s watching, I want to allay those fears, I want to rest those fears for you right now because when they talk about, whether it be packing the courts or ending the filibuster, I will not vote to do that,” he continued.
