Manchin to vote against Dems' voting rights bill

Democratic Senator Joe Manchin (pictured) told Fox News in an interview he plans to oppose voting rights legislation, titled For the People Act, which is supported by most Democratic lawmakers.

He said the bill threatens to further divide the US on the issue. "It's the wrong piece of legislation to bring our country together and unite our country," Manchin explained.

The proposal calls for the states to expand access to mail-in voting, offer at least 15 days of early voting, as well as same-day registration. "I don't want to be in a country that's divided any further," Manchin concluded.
