‘Schumer wouldn't say if he would stay neutral or support Manchin and Sinema if they face primary challengers in the next cycle.’

For the second time in three weeks, Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) declined to back his two most critical members, Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ), against the prospect of primary challenges:

TODAY: “Schumer wouldn't say if he would stay neutral or support Manchin and Sinema if they face primary challengers in the next cycle.”

LAST MONTH: "If this is a critical moment for democracy and a moral moment, would you support efforts to primary Sens. Manchin and Sinema?"

SEN. SANDERS AGREES… “Bernie Sanders says he would support primary challengers to Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema if they continue to oppose scrapping filibuster”
