“I don’t give up on Joe Manchin. When he was governor and Secretary of State in West Virginia he initiated many of the initial ideas that are in the HR 1, S.1, the For the People Act. I read his op-ed and you read a part of it, I think he left the door open. I think it’s ajar. I’m not giving up. I do know that he has certain concerns about the legislation that we may be able to come to terms on.” – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, this morning on CNN.
