Well, looks like Chuck Schumer can’t count on at least one of his Democratic colleagues to filibuster SCOTUS nominee Neil Gorsuch:
I will vote to confirm Judge Neil Gorsuch to be the ninth justice on the Supreme Court. pic.twitter.com/MpVbaqf0LB

There you have it.
@Sen_JoeManchin Thank you! I hope more Democrats follow your honorable lead

@Sen_JoeManchin Thank you for being honorable and principled. Voting for qualifications not by who nominated him.

Some Democrats are, shall we say, less than thrilled with Manchin’s decision:

@Sen_JoeManchin I'll be donating to any Dem challenger to your seat. Can't wait to see you voted out of office. You're a traitor to Dems & an embarrassment.

@Sen_JoeManchin Enjoy your remaining time. You've earned the right to be voted out.

A parting piece of advice for Sen. Manchin:
Better wear a helmet Joe. There will be incoming fire. https://t.co/FNc9RpREAd
