Jayapal meets with ManchinSen, Joe Manchin  (D-W.Va.) met separately Monday with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Congressional Progressive Caucus Chairwoman Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) as liberals and centrists in the party struggle to cut a deal on President Biden's sweeping spending plan.

The meetings — he met first with Jayapal and then later with Sanders — come as the two leading progressives have grown increasingly frustrated with Manchin, a key holdout on the social spending bill that is still being negotiated.

A source familiar confirmed the meeting between Manchin and Jayapal, while Sanders and Manchin, leaving the Capitol on Monday night, told reporters that they had also met.
