Expanding background checks for gun purchases can still happen, Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.V.) told "Fox News Sunday."

Manchin said he spoke to Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) at Saturday night's White House Correspondents' Association Dinner and that his partner on the legislation was ready for another try. In a vote earlier this month, the bipartisan amendment failed to get the 60 votes necessary for passage.
