If you’re a voter who wants the filibuster gone, the goal is to endorse Democratic Senate candidates in states like Pennsylvania. Democrats only need to take one extra seat to make Joe Manchin’s opposition irrelevant.
Democrats will definitely change the filibuster rules. The filibuster is currently not gutted, but it is severely weakened.
Mitch McConnell is scared. Real change is coming, and if Democrats keep the momentum in the 2022 midterm election, a candidate who represents the best potential for Democrats to get a Senate seat tells the whole country that the filibuster will be toast when he does wins.
