(CNN)President Joe Biden's nominee to lead the Office of Management and Budget Neera Tanden will carry on with her outreach to senators next week after her confirmation was jeopardized Friday when Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin revealed he would vote against her.

Manchin announced Friday he will vote against Tanden, making her confirmation unlikely given Republican resistance to her nomination.

Biden has said he does not intend to pull Tanden's nomination, saying, "I think we're gonna find the votes to get her confirmed. "

And White House press secretary Jen Psaki defended the nomination in a statement to CNN, saying that "Neera Tanden is an accomplished policy expert who would be an excellent Budget Director and we look forward to the committee votes next week and to continuing to work toward her confirmation through engagement with both parties.
