Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) reiterated Wednesday he does not support federalizing elections or annulling the filibuster after meeting with President Joe Biden on Monday.
“If you do it for one time you basically destroy the Senate as we know it,” he said in relation to the filibuster, per an ABC News reporter.
The article goes on to state the following:
The report also said Manchin still does not support the HR 1 House bill to federalize elections.
“How in the world could you, with the tension we have right now, allow a voting bill to restructure the voting of America on a partisan line? I just believe with all my heart and soul that’s what would happen, and I’m not going to be part of it,” he said April 27.
“I believe Democrats and Republicans feel very strongly about protecting the ballot boxes allowing people to protect the right to vote making it accessible making it fair and making it secure and the John Lewis Voting Rights Act, if we apply that to all 50 states and territories, it’s something that can be done — it should be done,” Manchin told ABC News congressional correspondent Rachel Scott. “It could be done bipartisan to start getting confidence back in our system.”
ABC Reporter Ben Siegel tweeted Wednesday, “@Sen_JoeManchin tells @rachelvscott he supports the John Lewis Voting Rights Act but not the more expansive HR1 – and still opposes the filibuster on voting rights issues. ‘If you do it for one time you basically destroy the Senate as we know it,’ he said. Per @AllisonMPecorin.”
