Is there anything in the charter that precludes DC from statehood? It's not exactly a territory, rather a district set aside which belongs to all the states.

**edit**
I've been nosing around a bit and Manchin's flimsy constitutional excuse won't necessarily stand in court, but it doesn't have to...

Statehood proponents have to change his mind and his vote because that's all that really counts. Not liable to happen and the statehood vote is doomed.
