Manchin Skips Key Votes

Despite two highly anticipated votes in the Senate today, Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) "was nowhere to be found," the Washington Post reports.

"Manchin's absence stood in contrast to the presence of another Democrat, Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR), who despite a recent diagnosis of prostate cancer, made it in for Saturday's votes."

A Machin spokesman to the Charleston Gazette: "While he regrets missing the votes, it was a family obligation that he just could not break."
