The outreach comes after Harrisapparent move to apply pressure on Manchin frustrated the conservative Democrat, something that he made clear over the weekend.
The source declined to say what the White House said to Manchin or who from the White House called him, but the call underscores the delicate balancing act President Joe Biden faces as he and Democrats try to hold a narrow Senate majority together to pass a sweeping Covid relief planand any other legislation this year.
    The Senate’s 50-50 partisan split gives the White House little room for error and Manchin will be a key vote on any package.

Kyrsten Sinema, along with Sen. Mark Kelly, who will face re-election in the state in 2022, in Arizona.
    In an interview with WSAZ Thursday, Harris said she and Biden believe it’s important towork with a sense of urgencyto address the public health and economic crisis. The Vice President touted the package, saying it’sabout opening schools back up in a safe way, it’s about getting support for small businesses, getting relief for families.
      Harris also spoke about the economic situation of the West Virginia coal industry.
      All of those skilled workers who are in the coal industry and transferring those skills to what we need to do in terms of dealing with reclaiming abandoned land mines; what we need to do around plugging leaks from oil and gas wells; 과, transferring those important skills to the work that has yet to be done that needs to get done,” 그녀가 말했다.
