On Sunday, the Democratic Senator from West Virginia dropped a bombshell. Joe Manchin said he will refuse to vote for any legislation to advance or protect voting rights in America unless ten Republican senators back it as well – an impossibly high bar, particularly at a time when Republicans all over the country are pushing to make voting harder and seize control of the democratic process in the states. This episode explores what’s at stake, talks about why the progressive campaign to pressure Manchin to change his mind seems doomed to failure, and talks about what comes next.
Usually we release episodes every two weeks. This one comes just a week after our last episode and – unless something big happens – the next, an interview I’m very excited about, will be two weeks from today.
