President Biden is set to deliver remarks on Tuesday announcing his intention to back historic Senate rule changes that would scrap the filibuster.

The Details: Biden will be making the remarks in Georgia, where is he looking to help Democrats looking to hold onto their seats in the upcoming midterm elections.

Biden is expected to cite the need to pass federal voting rights legislation as a reason for supporting the repeal of the filibuster.

Republicans have long claimed that maintaining the filibuster was a red line for them. In addition moderate Democrats like Senators Joe Manchin and Kristin Sinema have also consistently voiced their support for maintaining the filibuster in its current form.
