This is interesting. It was pretty depressing that Sen. Joe Manchin wasn't supporting the For The People Act -- but now he's pushing the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act -- with one notable exception. He wants the "pre-clearance" requirement to apply to every single state.

Manchin might be a better politician than many people think.
