Manchin denies WaPo report that Dems dissuaded him from breaking with Biden during TV interview

Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia is denying a report from the Washington Post that he planned to break with President Biden during an appearance on a Sunday talk show before senior Democrats ran interference.

Sources told The Washington Post that the recently turned independent senator had informed key allies of his plans, following Biden's widely panned debate performance against former President Trump.

But Manchin later told Fox News’ Jacqui Heinrich that the report was “completely wrong” and “never happened.”

“[The Post] must be desperate for a story,” Manchin said.
