In 2018, when 6th District Rep. Kathy Manning was running for Congress against 13th District Rep. Ted Budd, Manning ran a campaign add that said she would not vote for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Manning lost that race in 2018, but when elected to represent the 6th District in 2020, she cast her first vote in the House for Pelosi for speaker and has supported Pelosi on every vote since.
As House speaker, Pelosi doesn’t vote on many of the procedural matters, but Pelosi has voted 24 times in this session and, every time, Manning has voted with her. For Pelosi and Manning that is 21 yeas, 2 nays, and they both voted for Pelosi for speaker.
Both Pelosi and Manning voted to call on Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove President Donald Trump from office on Jan. 12 when Trump had eight days remaining in office.
Pelosi and Manning then both voted for the impeachment of Trump on Jan. 13 when Trump had seven days left in office.
Pelosi and Manning both voted for the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan, which passed the House and the Senate without a single Republican vote. This plan awarded $106 million to Guilford County and $56 million to Greensboro. Both Guilford County and Greensboro are discussing how to spend the “extra” money since neither needs it to cover COVID-19 related expenses.
That bill included an increase in unemployment benefits that has made it difficult for businesses to hire enough workers to get back to normal operations. Some companies have resorted to paying job applicants simply to show up for an interview.
Pelosi and Manning both voted for the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act that passed the House on a straight party line vote but has not passed the Senate.
One of the controversial portions of this bill would restrict the qualified immunity doctrine for local and state law enforcement. Qualified immunity protects law enforcement officers from being sued when acting in the line of duty. The president of the national Fraternal Order of Police at a committee hearing spoke against the bill.
Pelosi and Manning both voted for H.R. 1, which has not passed the Senate. H.R. 1 would greatly expand the federal government’s control of elections, which are now largely controlled by the individual states. Opponents have said the bill is unconstitutional because the Constitution gives the power to control elections to the states.
H.R.1 would require same day voter registration and establish automatic voter registration so that when people provide information to the government, such as for a driver’s license or to attend a state college or university, they would automatically be registered to vote. It would also restrict a state’s right to purge voters from the rolls.
Even the American Civil Liberties Union did not support the bill.

Are we really surprised? She belongs to Pelosi more than she belongs to North Carolina.
Did anybody really believe Manning would do anything except what she is doing? She was willing to say anything to get elected, then she clearly intended to do as she damn well pleased or what pleased Nancy Pelosi.
The lies are not a surprise.
A true BLUE soldier. Now that she is assured of healthcare for a lifetime and a pension she’s lifted her skirts enough to reflect her real beliefs.
And we’re surprised?
Wow. Dishonesty in a politician. Overspending and beholden to lockstep woke oligarchy and their radical transformative agenda. Manning is the latest example of the wrong people getting into politics to enrich their supporters and crush freedom and stifle all dissent.
Democrats will say anything during the campaign to get elected. Just look at Harris and Biden. No one should be surprised by Manning.
You mean a “politician” lied on a campaign ad? hmm..there used to be consequences years ago for someone that did lied, voters voted them out..in today’s climate, business as usual.
Isn’t it amazing how so many in the federal government always vote for more federal government once they are in federal office. . . . I would like to reverse the 17th amendment that let Senators be elected by popular vote rather than being appointed by state legislators as the constitution says. States have been emasculated as a balance against the Feds by that and by the dependence of the states on federal funding for so many state-run programs.
Right on that one. Fat chance of a repeal.
Manning just moved so far down my respect list…. she’s invisible to me!
Surely Kathy Manning didn’t think we would believe her!
Are you really surprised? Typical politician. A Dad was asked, by his child after reading a bedtime fairy tale … Do all fairy tales begin with “once upon a time” to which her Daddy responded … no dear child, some begin with “if elected I promise to…”
Nothing to see here. Just another democratic candidate promising the moon to get in office and then doing the opposite.
What a disappointment! I was hoping that Senator Manning would listen to her constituents and vote accordingly—not just party line. Oh well, it does not appear that Ms. Manning is able to think for herself and do what is best for this Country. Gotta keep Pelosi happy! Some Democrats used to be able to think rationally and make wise decisions but it appears they are only after votes and the destruction of the USA.
Ms. Manning could care less about her constituents. Integrity in her party is dead. Just look at her mentor Nancy….
Integrity in both parties is dead. There is only a small handful of politicians in either party whoa actually care about what’s good for the people they’re supposed to represent, and even fewer who actually care about the constitution.
Fell directly beneath the tree , All are liars.
We are fortunate that Congresswoman Kathy Manning votes for the PEOPLE of our District. Appreciate how hard she works for us–the citizens.
You are so right. Carrying all that water for Ms. Pelosi and checking all those little blue boxes not to mention selling her soul is a tremendous amount of work.
That’s either sarcasm or profound ignorance. I would say stupidity, but I’m trying to be nice.
Glad she makes both of you happy. We The People don’t agree.
Ann: So you are drinking the kool aid too? What PEOPLE are you referring to? It certainly is not the working middle class. All the democrats want is for the hard working individuals to pay more taxes so that the “entitled” can keep sitting on their behinds getting free housing, food, insurance and a salary for doing nothing. Soon, we will be a country of do nothings. Maybe you are one of them.
Pass that over when you’re done smoking it…
“Despite Campaign Rhetoric Manning Votes With Pelosi”
Of course she does. Did anyone with an IQ above 30 think she would do any differently?
Lets see, how many times were the district lines redrawn for Manning to finally get a win?
This is in a large part Mark Walker’s fault for being afraid to run against her. He didn’t support his constituents in the Sixth Districts and left us for the potential of being a Senator. So with the redrawn district, we’ll never have a conservative representative again to speak for us and I’ll never vote for Walker again.
The sixth district was realigned to include southeastern Forsyth County which made it more than likely democrats would elect the next representative. Don’t blame Mark for reading the tea leaves.
I can remember when a politician ran in either party,their main concern was what can I do to help my community and people .The Republicans still have that philosophy but the Dems have gone absolutely crazy with I know what you need and I’ll tax you to death and afterwards KEEP my job because you will continue to vote me in because you love all these taxes .Why are the Dems so DRUNK on Power and think their goal is to give away your house so they can appease a very small group by giving to them and not the nation as a whole .
Remember one thing about the Dems ,”If their lips are moving They are Lying.Also they will believe a lie rather than the truth.When the prez spoke about the Georgia laws on voting was signed into the law He agreed either Big lady in Georgia that the changes hurt people .Neither of those two together could not screw in one light bulb . Why can’t the Dems see we want to do our thing and be left alone .
Look at that mug….
The primary reason why she won her election was the forced realignment of her district to include all of Guilford County. . . .and. . . .a huge chunk of eastern Forsyth County. Jerrymandering??????
All I can say is, a big fat……….DUH.
Received a survey from Kathy Manning about the American Jobs Plan relating to infrastructure. Of all 15 things on her list, the only one I checked off was “Roads and Bridges,” not a thing more. Child care, Elder care, Free community college, Clean drinking water, New public housing do not count as infrastructure IMHO.
