Congressional Democrats and progressive groups have taken aim at the filibuster as they push for the Democrats’ controversial voting legislation.

Manchin said during a Sunday interview that he could not imagine a filibuster "carve-out" for the sweeping election overhaul.

The filibuster, a longstanding Senate tradition requiring 60 votes in the 100-member chamber to advance a bill, effectively allows the minority party to block certain legislation.
