Democratic West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin seems to know that progressive Democratic policy initiatives spell electoral doom for the Party’s Senate candidates.

During a Fox News interview with Bret Baier on Nov. 9 ahead of the critical Georgia Senate runoffs, Manchin disavowed several key Democratic pushes. The move seems to be an attempt to disarm the Republican opposition by assuaging voter fears that a Democratic majority would result in deeply unpopular moves such as abolition of the filibuster, court-packing and other progressive policies.
