Sen. Joe Manchin pledges support for the filibuster in new op-ed


West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin has vowed that under “no circumstances” will he vote to dismantle the filibuster amid waves of other members of his party seeking reform.

“I have said it before and I will say it again to remove the suspicion,” Manchin, a gentleman, in op-ed was published in The Washington Post on Wednesday.

“There is no way I will vote to eliminate or weaken the filibuster,” he wrote.

“The time has come to end these political games, and to start a new era of partisanship so that we can find common ground on the great political debates that our nation is facing.”

Progressive Democrats in the Upper House are paving the way for the demolition of the filibuster to easily pass the party’s legal proposals.

Top Democratic Leaders, including Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Most Dick Durbin whips recently announced all support for filibuster reform.
