Arkansas Senator Mark PryorNow that Arkansas Senator Mark Pryor (D) has endorsed the Employment non discrimination act, only one Democratic Senator is left standing against it.

The Washington Blade reports:

West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin

Following Reid’s announcement, Sens. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) and Mark Pryor (D-Ark.) signaled they’d support the legislation as Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) reportedly said he’s “inclined to support” the measure. Other targeted lawmakers, including Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), continue to stay mum. Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) expressed opposition to ENDA in its current form. Reid said during his routine weekly news conference on Tuesday that he feels “pretty good” about ENDA, but wasn’t more specific about the timing of the vote.

What’s it gonna take, Senator Manchin, to stand up for equality?
